WHITE PAPER | Restriction of primary aromatic amines (PAAs) in food contact materials and testing strategies

Primary aromatic amines (PAAs) are a class of substances which can potentially migrate from food packaging materials into foodstuffs. Some PAAs are known to have carcinogenic properties, whilst others are suspected carcinogens and therefore it is important to understand if they migrate into the food from food contact materials. In this whitepaper, our expert Kathelijn Nafzger introduces PAA substances, the regulatory context and testing strategies to demonstrate safe food contact materials.
