Performance of in silico models for mutagenicity prediction of food contact materials

(FCM) constituents were chosen as study substances since many of these lack experimental data, making them an interesting group for in silico screening. Accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, positive ...

Reference Module in Food Science: A Safety Evaluation of Printed Paper and Board Contaminants: Photo-Initiators as a Case Study

compounds used in food contact materials (FCM s). The current study discussed the issues related to printed paper and board. Afterward, a risk assessment was carried out for the specific class of ...

Coatings in food contact materials: Potential source of genotoxic contaminants?

regulation exists on chemicals used in coatings for food contact materials (FCM). Therefore, these substances need to comply with the general provisions of EU Regulation 1935/2004 and, if present, with ...

(Q)SAR tools for priority setting: A case study with printed paper and board food contact material substances.

based on the combination of multiple (quantitative) structure-activity relationship ((Q) SAR) tools. Non-evaluated substances used in printed paper and board food contact materials (FCM) were selected for ...

Printed paper and board food contact materials as a potential source of food contamination.

materials (FCM) are estimated to be the largest source of food contamination. Apart from plastics, the most commonly used FCM are made of printed paper and board. Unlike their plastic counterparts, these are ...

Study of the possible migration risks of food contact materials for children under 3 years

concern regarding the possible risks associated with the used alternatives to PC (No. 8697, 11.03.2010). Consequently, alternatives to PC food contact materials (FCM s) for infants, such as polypropylene ...
