Sensory science for food contact materials safety
On 29th November 2011 a workshop was organised on the "Sensory science for food contact materials safety". The scope of this workshop was to give an overview of the state of the art of sensory testing in the framework of Art 3 of Regulation 1935/2004 that states that FCM "should not change the sensory properties of the food". The implementation of this article is hindered by the lack of guidance on methodologies adequately covering the testing of compliance of this article. The workshop reviewed how sensory testing is done by various stakeholders, where convergence already exist and where the gaps still are or harmonization is needed.
