Ensure food matrices and food contact materials conform to the latest global PFAS regulatory requirements.
PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), including PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate), are a diverse group of compounds known to cause several human health problems, including developmental issues, cancer, liver damage, immune system disruption, vaccine resistance, thyroid disease and impaired fertility.
Often characterized as ‘forever chemicals’ due to their persistence in the environment, these synthetic substances have been widely used in a variety of products – from nonstick pans and waterproof clothing to electric car batteries. Through migration and bioaccumulation in the environment, these compounds are now entering the food supply chain, causing concerns about their impact on human health.
