There is an urgent need to better understand the actual safety significance of food contact materials (FCM) as a source of chemical exposure in humans. This workshop aimed to identify the potential to incorporate various bioassays with the TTC for the identification and safety assessment of FCM, specifically focus on their suitability to address NIAS safety.
As consumers are often exposed to naturally occurring contaminants and process-related compounds in their diets, it is crucial to investigate how these compounds are formed in order to improve how we detect and measure them and to assess their safety. This seminar, organised by the ILSI Europe Process-Related Compounds Task Force (PRC TF) tackled subjects relating to such substances, particularly focusing on assessing their impact on human health.
