PAH's in your food?

Processing contaminants are generated during the processing cycle of a product. They are formed when a chemical reaction takes place between the food and processing (e.g., disinfection, fermentation, heating, canning, or grilling). Examples of these contaminants include Acrylamide, PAHs, oxyhalides, and haloacetic acids.

On Demand Webinar: Bromate Analysis with Capillary IC

In the production of bottled water and beverages, water is a critical raw ingredient. In order to ensure its safety, water is disinfected prior to use. However, the disinfection process can actually create harmful byproducts like bromate, which is classified as a potential carcinogen.
