FOOD PACKAGING TECHNOLOGY
intelligent packaging, but they also have the potential to reduce the safety and
quality of the product, thereby limiting product shelf life.
Much work has been carried out into the migration of substances from
packaging into food. This has included the development of methods for the
identification and diagnosis of problems using chemical and sensory assessment.
The kinetics of migration have been modelled to allow prediction of the extent
of migration over the shelf life of the product. In the UK, a number of surveillance exercises have been undertaken into the levels of particular migrants in
foods (Table 3.5). The history of these surveillance exercises provides a useful
summary of the concerns surrounding food contact materials over recent years.
