Packaging must not transfer its constituents into food to the detriment of the food's quality. Legislation is very strict,
especially regarding heavy metals and plastics monomers. At Campden BRI we have a range of UKAS accredited methods for testing compliance with
legal requirements for both heavy metal transfer and plastic migration from the packaging into the food. As well as 'global' migration analysis,
we can also investigate migration of Formaldehyde, Acrylonitrile, Vinyl acetate, Bisphenol A, BADGE, NOGE, BFDGE, Photoinitiators and Phthalates.
Chemical taints can arise through a number of routes - and understanding the cause of a particular taint is a prerequisite
for preventing its recurrence. At Campden BRI, we have a range of skills to help you find the source of your problem. Expert sensory specialists
can describe the nature of the taint, and this information can be used by our analytical chemists to determine the exact nature of the problem.
This can then lead to an understanding of its source. Potential problems can also be evaluated to determine their severity. Is the chemical you
are concerned about actually in the product and, if so, can it be detected in the food by the consumer? Our chemical and sensory analysis expertise
can find the answers for you.
