9781859575277: Assessing Food Safety of Polymer Packaging

Many foods depend on additives for safety, stability or preservation. Foods are packaged to protect them and keep them in good condition while they are delivered to shops, stacked on shelves or stored at home. The packaging material has to both preserve the food and to protect it from deterioration, outside contamination or damage during distribution and storage; and the packaging material in direct contact with a food must not harm itself or be harmed by the food. The packaging material for a particular food must therefore be carefully selected with these considerations in mind. This book is designed to help current and prospective researchers in this field, understand the theory of food safety in plastic packaging. The book is divided into 7 chapters: Chapter 1 is devoted to a theoretical discussion of the process of diffusion through a sheet. Chapter 2 is concerned with the transfer of the contaminants taking place in packages before they are in contact with food. Chapter 3 is devoted to the problems caused by the process of co-extrusion or co-moulding of the films or of the packages. Chapter 4 is the chapter in which some applications of the theoretical considerations established in Chapters 1 to 3 are developed further. Chapter 5 considers the future, when use of active packaging will be widespread. Chapter 6 discusses the misconceptions arising from the processes or misuse of equations. Chapter 7 details the conclusions arising from the book. This book will be of interest to anyone who uses polymeric food packaging.

About the Author:

Jean-Maurice Vernaud gained his first degree in chemistry and physics in 1956 and before his retirement was a professor at the University of St Etienne in France. During his career he has published almost 500 research papers, given 30 plenary lectures, supervised 79 theses and published and contributed to a number of books. Jean-Maurice is on the Editorial Board of 5 International journals and is a referee for 3 other journals. He is thus well qualified to write about Food Packaging. Iosif-Daniel Rosca is an associate professor in the Department of Polymer Chemistry and Technology, at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, Romania. For more then a decade his research activity has focused on modeling and simulation of heat and mass transfer in polymer materials and biological systems. The results of the research have been published in numerous scientific papers and a book ('Assessing Bioavailability of Drug Delivery Systems, Mathematical Modeling').
