In this video, Dr Michele Suman, Food Chemistry & Safety Research Manager at Barilla G. e R. Fratelli, describes how his facility is testing for emerging risks in food safety. Contaminants such as pesticides or heavy metal residues can be present in our food. In particular, his laboratory is researching the detection of plasticizers that have leached into food samples from their packaging, such as the plastic gasket on the lid of a glass jar.
This video was filmed at RAFA 2015.
