Primaire aromatische amines uit bedrukte voedselcontactmaterialen, zoals servetten of bakkerijzakken

09 september 2014

Primary aromatic amines (PAAs) can occur as contaminants in colour pigments. They can pose a health risk in colour-printed paper napkins and bakery bags as well as other food contact materials if they migrate into food. The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) has assessed whether the current limit values for the migration of these substances into food provide adequate protection.
The BfR believes it should be ensured that their occurrence in materials that come into contact with food is as low as is technically possible. The BfR recommends that only colour pigments be used that do not contain any carcinogenic aromatic amine component (BfR Mening, 24 juli 2014).
