Definition


Inertia of packaging showed by components' migration phenomena from the packaging material to packed food

 

Topics


  • Analytical methods to qualify and quantify the volatile compounds released by packaging materials that might affect the organoleptic quality of the food and/or that might be toxic for consumer
  • Development of analytical methods to qualify and quantify the migrants ensuing the packaging use
  • Development of analytical methods to qualify and quantify volatile compounds coming from the degradation of the additive during manufacturing

 

Keywords
