Solvent-based gravure and flex inks used in packaging always retain small amounts of solvent in the final package. When measured and controlled, this is not a problem. However, excess solvent retention will cause the package to have an odor and can spoil the taste of food products.
DANI Analitica has developed and collected a full range of configurations in order to provide a complete portfolio for the analysis of Residual Solvents in Food Packaging.

The last decade has observed an exponential growth in packaging and food sector in both developed and developing countries. Food is an edible substance which we usually get from animal or plants and contains necessary nutrients including proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, fats, and vitamins to assist life, energy, and growth. Food is a perishable commodity and hence contamination and degradation of food can occur at any stage of the food chain.It can be chemical, physical or biological. It is highly crucial that the food must be protected at all levels by using good quality packaging material, which is safe, cost-effective, and non-toxic.
