    Aims and Scope

    Food can contain substances such as acid that leach out chemicals from the packaging. The migration of these molecules into to food can decrease the quality or even be toxic for the human body. This book explains this mechanism and summarizes harmful or potentially hazardous compounds that are described to migrate from packing into food such as bisphenol A, melamine and phthalates and photoinitiators.
