Summary

Now, more than ever, foods come packaged in containers designed for direct cooking or heating, which often causes the movement of substances - indirect additives - into foods. Because of their unique characteristics, plastics or polymeric materials (PM) have become the most important packaging material for food products. The safety assessment of plastics intended for use in contact with foodstuffs or drinking water continues to present a serious challenge.
Indirect Food Additives and Polymers: Migration and Toxicology studies the potential hazards of indirect additives for human health and develops recommendations for their safe manufacture and use. It contains an impressive review of basic regulatory, toxicological, and other scientific information necessary to identify, characterize, measure, and predict the hazards of nearly 2,000 plastic-like materials employed in packaging. The author presents the data underlying federal regulations - previously unavailable a single volume.
The entry for each chemical provides:
Prime Name
Molecular or Structural Formula
Molecular Mass
Synonyms
CAS Number
RTECS number
Properties
Application and Exposure
Migration Data
Acute Toxicity
Repeated Exposure
Short-Term Toxicity
Long-Term Toxicity
Immunotoxicity of Allergenic Effect
Reproductive Toxicity
Mutagenicity
Carcinogenicity
Chemobiokinetics
Standards
Guidelines
Regulations
Recommendations
References
International in scope, the Handbook of Indirect Polymeric Additives in Food and Water: Migration and Toxicology offers comprehensive data on the toxic effects of polymeric materials and their ingredients. You will find the most information on plastics and polymeric materials- their migration and toxicology - in this resource.
