Investigation and Analysis on the applicable standards of food packaging paper in China

recently, some media reported that excessive fluorescent substances in paper containers such as instant noodles and milk tea would endanger health. Now the relevant information about the applicable standards of food packaging paper is introduced as follows:

China's "Hygienic standard for base paper for food packaging" clearly stipulates the hygienic indicators of lead, arsenic, fluorescent substances, decolorization test, coliform and pathogenic bacteria in base paper that directly contacts food, and formulates the supporting detection method standard "analysis method of hygienic standard for base paper for food packaging". The outer material of food packaging is not applicable to the hygienic standard for base paper for food packaging

at present, the inspection of instant noodles, milk tea and other foods must be stopped in the quarterly protection and maintenance plan. The paper cups and paper bowls for products are generally double-layer coated products, and the paper materials in direct contact with food should meet the "Hygienic standard for base paper for food packaging", and the coated materials should meet the corresponding standards. The outer materials of food packaging containers should avoid direct contact with food, and take measures to prevent the migration of fluorescent substances to food and avoid harm to human health,

note: relevant conditions of other national or regional standards

the U.S. Food and Drug Administration listed the substances allowed to be used in food contact paper and paperboard in Chapter 176 of Part 21 of the federal regulations, without restrictions on fluorescent brighteners. FDA also approved a batch of substances that can be used in paper and paperboard through the notification procedure of food contact substances, including sub general fluorescent brightener

there are no regulations on food packaging paper in the European Union, and the regulations on food contact paper in part 36 of the regulations on food contact materials of the federal risk assessment institute of Germany are generally followed. Bfr36/2 baking paper stipulates that no colorant or fluorescent brightener shall be used in baking paper, but the above substances can be used in multilayer paper and paperboard that are not in direct contact with food under the condition that the colorant or fluorescent brightener does not migrate to food. The directive of the European Council stipulates that only kitchen towels and napkins can be added with fluorescent brighteners, and the maximum dosage shall not exceed 0.3%. Other food contact paper products shall comply with the provisions of German BFR on food contact paper

Japan, Australia and New Zealand and other countries have no specific regulations for food trapezoidal screw packaging paper, which is only managed by the general regulations on food contact materials
