Studying Migration of Packaging Components into Food

The potential of food packaging components to migrate into food is an important health concern. Perfecto Paseiro Losada and his group at the University of Santiago de Compostela, in Spain, have been investigating the migration kinetics and actual migration of such compounds into a variety of types of food. They also have been carrying out studies to estimate dietary exposure. Paseiro recently spoke to LCGC about this work.

Trends in Water Analysis

In this interview, Thomas Letzel of the Technical University of Munich considers the current state of water analysis, looking at recommended techniques, the growth of nontargeted screening, and multi-disciplinary collaboration.

The Quest for Greener Sample Preparation in Food Analysis

When analytical chemists apply green chemistry approaches, which seek to minimize negative environmental effects, an important area of focus is reducing the consumption of toxic solvents, such as those used in extraction steps in sample preparation. Developing and testing greener extraction processes for food analysis is a major focus of Elena Ibáñez, a research professor at the Institute of Food Science Research (CIAL-CSIC) in Madrid, Spain.
