Quantitative Analysis of Food Packaging by Thermal Desorption–GC–MS Method
contributed by CDS |
This application note demonstrates quantitative analysis of food packaging samples by thermally desorbing the sample into a GC-MS.
Food packaging is used to protect food against microbiological, chemical and physical contamination. However, the interactions between the food packaging and the content may actually lead to alterations in the food quality. Two types of such interactions have been extensively studied as (1) migration of substances from packaging to food1,2, where organic compounds, such as adhesive, ink solvent, plasticisers, photoinitiators, perfluorochemicals, leached from the container into the content, and (2) scalping by the packaging3 , where the flavor and antioxidant in the food are absorbed by the container.
