Jeg arbejder med afsmitning af kemiske stoffer fra fødevarekontaktmaterialer. Fødevarer bringes i kontakt med mange forskellige materialetyper fra produktionsprocessen i fødevareindustrien, i forbindelse med indpakning og ved tilberedning og anvendelse hos forbrugerne.

Plast er det mest anvendte materiale men også mange andre materialer såsom pap, gummi, silikone, overfladebehandlingsmidler, lime og trykfarver osv. anvendes i kontakt med fødevarer. Materialerne fremstilles ud fra hundredvis af forskellige kemiske stoffer, og der er risiko for at disse afgives til fødevarerne under anvendelsen ved forskellige temperaturer og tider.

Jeg undersøger og rådgiver om afsmitning af kemiske stoffer fra fødevarekontaktmaterialer. Resultaterne danner baggrund for, dels at vurdere befolkningens indtag af de pågældende stoffer og dels om eventuelt gældende grænseværdier for de enkelte stoffer er overholdt. En del af arbejdet består i at screene for ukendte stoffer med henblik på at vurdere deres mængde og sundhedsmæssige betydning.

Expertise

Advising and research within food safety related to migration of chemical substances from food contact materials (FCM). The research include specific migration testing of potential harmful chemicals with the aim to assess the human exposure of these and screening of FCM to identify unknown chemical substance.

The work includes:
Planning and running of national enforcement campaigns in cooperation with the National Food Administration.
Development and validation of analytical test methods.
Advising of industry and national bodies.
