Chemical Food Contaminants: Acrylamide, Furan, Ethyl carbamate, Perchlorate and PFAS
There is a rising awareness among the consumers for food safety. They are actively involved in using products that are safe for their own and their children’s health. Moreover, many State and Federal agencies are now working to enact regulations that can enforce the use of safe materials for packaging, processing, and other mechanisms if they are being in direct contact with food materials. This report explores a new market opportunity, which exists for entrepreneurs who are willing to develop products that are safe for human health as well as offer safety to the environment.
