Assessment of conform­ity of food contact materi­als – Migration of mineral oil components into food­stuffs

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Author: Dr Christophe Goldbeck

 

1. Summary

The author has written a general survey on the topic of mineral oil origin migrants arising from the several pa­perback packaging materials of foodstuffs, polluting the processed foods. Mainly these polluting mineral oil origin compound are the solvent component of printing inks of different newspapers, paperback covering. Amongst these materials can be find numerous type of hazard com­pound for the human metabolism, migrating into the food­stuffs and forwarded into the human gut by the consumed foods. These compounds are typed in two main groups: MOSH (Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons) and MOAH (Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons). As the contempo­rary knowledge de MOAH group is more hazardous than MOSH. They doubt the MOAH migrants can cause risk of cancer in the human body. While in the EU there are several limitations of these chemicals in the food prod­ucts, there is a necessity to investigate them as packag­ing migrants. In this article the author describes a few of­ficial limitation data of these compounds forced by the European legislation.

These two groups mentioned above, involve vast number of different type of hydrocarbon molecules. That’s why the analysis of these compounds is very complicated. At the author’s workplace they use a hyphenation technics, involving an LC-GC-FID system to investigate the MOSH and MOAH compounds from different food samples. To achieve correct interpretation of complex chromato­grams delivered by the hyphenated system, needs very well skilled laboratory stuff, which is able to recognise the MOAH and MOSH origin peak series and they can divide the several peaks originating the other non-MOSH and non-MOAH hydrocarbons existing in the sample

Practical application of new food labelling regu­lations by Hungarian food businesses

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Authors: János Győrvári, Jenő Szigeti, László Varga

 

1. Summary

By examining the process of adopting new labelling re­quirements of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 into prac­tice it can be stated that adaptation to new labelling re­quirements does not happen in a uniform way all over the market of food industry products, there are differences by product category, by labelling requirement, and also by the characteristics of food businesses responsible for food labelling. Data of this research can provide impor­tant help in identifying and specifying those tools that can help food businesses to better understand new labelling requirements and implement them more effectively.

2. Introduction

Information on the packaging of food products is an im­portant tool in the food market, ensuring a high level of consumer protection and consumers’ right to information, and also the realization of a high level of health protection. Food entrepreneurs have to ensure that consumers are provided with adequate information about foods, in order to be able to choose the products to be consumed based on this information, and to prevent the application of prac­tices that mislead consumers [1].

Legal analysis for the microbiological parameters of paprika, and their practical application in Serbia

Monday, January 12, 2015

Authors: Hajnalka Kovács Sárkány, VilmosKovács

 

 

Although both Hungary and Croatia are members of the European Union, their regulations regarding paprika differ in many respects. If we consider Serbian regulations as well, we can see that the differences are even more pronounced. EU regulations should be incorporated successfully in the procedures of Serbian paprika producing plants, if they intend to export their products to the EU. In our work, regulations of all three countries regarding paprika are analyzed, and also their practical application by Serbian paprika producing plants. read more ...

Certain EU requirements regarding the manufacture of food contact materials Author: Andrea Martin

Monday, January 12, 2015

Author: Andrea Martin

 

Based on legal requirements currently in force in the EU, regarding the manufacture of food contact materials (FCM), not only issuing a statement of compliance based on the results of migration tests of the packaging material used might be demanded by the control authority, but implementation of good manufacturing practice (GMP) at the manufacturers of the products in question might also be inspected during an on-site audit.

Legal questions - Launching the column: Our goal is to interpret food law!

Monday, March 24, 2014

Author: Andrea Martin

 

For the last 60 years, the main goal of the Journal of Food Investigatons was to broaden the knowledge of authority experts, researchers and educators, to increase their professional informedness, also targeting individual creativity. The purpose of the legal questions colunm is to arouse the interest of another target group, thus widening the circle of readers: it strives to interpret food law and ensure compliance with the law via everyday questions and problems of manufacturers and distributors.

How to evaluate the declaration of compliance of a plastic-based packaging material supplier?

Monday, March 24, 2014

Author: Andrea Martin


Introduction

 

This article shows – based on experimental facts of audits – what we need to know, in addition to the declaration of compliance of food packaging materials provided by the suppliers, about the packaging materials of our products before using it as a material that comes into direct contact with a given food item. We will discuss the expectations for the overall migration test reports of plastic-based packaging materials and products too.
