Reducing your chemical exposure
Food packaging and other types of food contact articles can transfer chemicals into your food. This process is also known as migration. Some of the migrating chemicals are known to be hazardous, while many have never been tested for their toxicity or their identities are unknown. Therefore, reducing chemical exposures from food contact materials by choosing inert or low-migrating materials is a good idea. Here we provide an overview of resources where you can find very practical advice that is based on the most current scientific understanding.
