Detecting emerging contaminants From April 2018 newsletter

Are you aware of the new regulation relating to acrylamide in foods?

Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2158 applicable from the 11 April, will establish best practice measures to reduce acrylamide in food and outline benchmark levels for food business operators (FBO) to adhere to. When the benchmark levels are exceeded, FBOs should review the mitigation measures applied with the aim to achieve levels of acrylamide as low as reasonably achievable below the levels set out in Annex IV.

Campden BRI provides UKAS accredited testing for acrylamide levels in various products. All the foodstuffs referred to in Article 1 of the new regulation are included within the UKAS scope of our method. The method complies with the performance criteria set out in Annex III. The analysis is carried out using cutting-edge LC-MS/MS technology with a limit of detection of 10μg/kg.
