Migration of mineral oils into food

The migration of mineral oils into food is something that has been known and researched for several decades. In spite of all the research, the toxicology and origin from where the mineral oils migrate from, remain to some degree uncertain. Because of this, policy makers have not been able to develop coherent and clear regulations regarding this topic for the food packaging industry.
