In the last few years, risk assessment of exposure to multiple toxic chemicals from foods and feed has been a difficult and important task for researchers, scientific communities, and relevant authorities. The provision of safe food and the proper management of food and feed procedures from production to consumption are the main pillars for safe and high-quality food.
Chemical substances can play an important role in food production and preservation. Furthermore, food packaging materials and containers may contain chemical substances that can migrate into food. People can be exposed to both man-made chemical compounds present in food and naturally occurring pollutants at various levels. The purpose of chemical risk assessment is to quantify the levels of chemical exposure, investigate routes of exposure, determine safe levels and estimate the risk of exposure. The diversity of chemicals that risk assessors deal with in the food and feed sectors is rather large, including anthropogenic (pesticides, biocides, food and feed additives, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants, perfluoroalkyl substances, brominated flame retardants, dioxins, phthalates, bisphenols, etc.) and natural origin pollutants (mycotoxins, biotoxins, etc.).
In this Special Issue of Foods, we encourage the submission of manuscripts focused on risk assessment of chemical exposure from foods. Our aim is to gather new information in this field and provide an up-to-date Special Issue. We invite scientists and researchers to contribute original and unpublished research and review articles that deal with food chain contamination.
