Area 2.2.4 Food quality and safety:

KBBE-2008-2-4-01: Perfluorinated organic compounds in food
Perfluorinated organic compounds arising from anthropogenic sources are present as contaminants in the food chain. Research will contribute to the risk assessment of the human exposure through providing data on perfluorinated organic compounds in food; sources, routes of contamination and their relative importance, and estimate the dietary intake. Validated analytical methods and reference materials for foods will be developed.

Expected impact:
Produce new tools and date contributing to the risk assessment of human exposure to perfluorinated organic compounds from food. Large impact on human health and consumer protection. Support to contaminants policies and to the European Food Safety Authority.

Funding scheme:
Small collaborative project

Literature with regard to perfluorinated compounds in food and packaging
