Features: Detecting BADGE in Canned Tuna: An Application Note

Metal cans are often coated with a resin barrier to prevent contact between food and the can. Components from these coatings can migrate into the food affecting its safety and quality. Polyepoxyphenol coatings on the inside of cans based on bisphenol A epoxy resins can release the epoxy monomer bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE) into food. Bisphenol A and its derivatives are considered as endocrine disruptors. Both E.U. and U.S. have set regulations on the limit of BADGE migration into food at 1 mg/Kg.

On March 4, the FDA released its report on two product traceability pilot projects launched in 2011 as part of the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act. The two pilots, carried out by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), focused on foods recently linked to foodborne illness outbreaks—tomatoes in one pilot and chicken, peanuts, and spices in processed foods in the other. The goal: To identify potential methods of improving product tracing of foods in the supply chain and of...

Features: Packaging That Tests Food Freshness?

Scientists at Eindhoven University of Technology have developed what they say is the final piece in the puzzle of developing a smart sensor that could be integrated within food packaging to provide a readout of that food’s freshness: A plastic analog-to-digital converter. The invention was presented in late February at the ISSCC in San Francisco, an important conference on solid-state circuits.
