Process Contaminants in Food

Ensure compliance with regulatory requirements governing contaminants formed during food processing.

Process contaminants are a wide range of chemicals that are formulated during food production. These can have a serious impact on health, leading to market regulations. In many cases, the formation of these substances is unavoidable and dependent on the process and the actual ingredients.

Typical process contaminants include acrylamide, 3-MCPDE and relevant esters, ethyl carbamate, furans, nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Depending on the chemical, different monitoring levels or maximum limits, as well as advice for minimizing risk, have been published to ensure regulatory compliance.
