The article lists 50 typical food contact material migrants such as bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol S (BPS), benzophenone, isopropylthioxanthone (ITX), phthalates, and perfluorinated compounds. State of the art chemical analysis methods are described for common migrants in various foodstuffs, and previously published levels found in different foods are given. The authors conclude that ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS) is the currently most convenient and reliable approach for detection and quantification of chemical migrants in foods.
