Assessing Food Safety of Polymer Packaging - iSmithers-Rapra
Assessing Food Safety of Polymer Packaging is designed to help current and prospective researchers in this field, understand the theory of food safety in plastic packaging. This book will be of interest to anyone who uses polymeric food packaging.
Many foods depend on additives for safety, stability or preservation. Foods are packaged to protect them and keep them in good condition while they are delivered to shops, stacked on shelves or stored at home.
The packaging material has to both preserve the food and to protect it from deterioration, outside contamination or damage during distribution and storage; and the packaging material in direct contact with a food must not harm itself or be harmed by the food. The packaging material for a particular food must therefore be carefully selected with these considerations in mind.
