Novel way of identifying chemicals in paper and board packaging

A novel approach to identify problematic chemicals in food contact materials made from paper and board has been developed at the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark. It uses a number of selected cell-based methods to identify harmful effects and to sort packaging types according to their toxicity profile. Sophisticated...

Special topic portal on chemicals’ harmful effects

Research carried out by the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, into the many thousands of chemical substances that people may be exposed, is contributing to a paradigm shift in risk assessment: Instead of evaluating the substances’ potential harmful effects individually, the research shows the need to look at...

Research leads to better predictions of cocktail effects

In order to protect people from chemicals’ harmful effects it is not sufficient to carry out risk assessments one by one of the chemicals people are exposed to every day. Research from the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, shows that if many chemicals with similar effects are present at the same time even at...

New knowledge strengthens risk assessment of chemical cocktails in food

Denmark's largest research project on chemical cocktail effects in food, spearheaded by the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, has just been completed. It has established that even small doses of chemicals can have significant negative effects if they are present together. A reliable method for calculating the effects...

Paper and board food packaging contains endocrine active chemicals

For paper and board food packaging only little regulation and legislation exists, and the composition of the packaging is in many cases unknown for the consumer and the authorities. A PhD project at the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, shows that paper and board food packaging contain well-known and new endocrine...

Study of five bisphenol A analogues

Bisphenol A, used in plastic packaging and paper, is suspected of having health-damaging effects in humans. The National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, has investigated whether five compounds resembling bisphenol A can be used as alternatives. It turns out that the compounds tested have the potential to have the same harmful...
