Laboratory analysis of NIAS

Are you looking to detect NIAS content in your food packaging ?

Materials in contact with food products can contain non intentionally added substances (NIAS) : raw material impurities, biproducts, degradation products…

Analysis of NIAS consists of identifying unexpected and potentially toxic substances which are capable of migrating from packaging materials to food products.

In accordance with relevant European regulations (Regulation 10/2011), it is required to monitor the components of packaging materials suspected of being able to migrate into food thereby compromising quality and safety.

Industrialists are required to ensure the safety and the quality of their packaging. Support from an analytical laboratory makes it possible to obtain reliable results and to assess the compliance as well as the performance of food packaging according to the criteria of a scope statement or of a legal standard.
