Introduction to common FDA food-grade test standards for FDA testing

The FDA test includes the testing of product-touch materials, so what is this FDA test for product-touch materials? Let Lihang introduce to everyone.

In the process of production, processing, packaging, storage and transportation of food, all materials that can come into contact with food are called food contact materials. Commonly used materials in daily life include various plastics, metals, ceramics, glass, bamboo and wood products. The environmental safety of these materials that may come into contact with food is directly related to the safety and health of users. Therefore, such utensils, materials and other products that are in direct contact with food and beverages or the tongues of people exported to the United States need to be tested in accordance with FDA's relevant regulations.

Different FDA test standards correspond to fixed test requirements and conditions. Therefore, when conducting FDA food-grade testing on products, it is necessary to know what the material of the product contacted with food is, because each material tested by the FDA corresponds to a standard, and then conduct its own testing requirements. as follows:

FDA 21CFR 175.300-usually used in resins, polymer coatings, etc.

FDA 21CFR 176.170-usually made of paper products and materials
