A study published online February 13, 2013 in the peer-reviewed journal Food Additives & Contaminants: Part A investigates the influence of packaging, temperature, storage type and storage duration on the mineral oil and diisopropyl napththalene (DIPN) migration in two dry food types. While migration is known to depend on these factors, their interaction and final impact on the migration of volatile organic compounds including mineral oils and DIPN during longer storage was previously unknown. The Food Packaging Forum report summarizes the study and its most important findings.
