Information about tests

Mineral oils MOSH, POSH and MOAH

Determination of mineral oil hydrocarbons, MOSH (mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons), POSH (polyolfin oligomeric saturated hydrocarbons) and MOAH (mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons) in food, in food simulants, in packagings or investigation of the barrier of packaging materials against it.

test method:specific migration (SML)/ NIAS- Screening/ Single substance analyses/ GC- MS- analysis
Norms: BfR-Methode LC-GC-FID (2019)
SVI Guideline 2015-01_Innenbeutel (2016-01)
Needed sample size:10 x DIN A4 per simulant (please label the food-contact side) or 20 containers or 250g food, packed in aluminium foil

Standardprüfungen

mineral oil barrier
Measuring of the efficiency of barriers against the migration of mineral oil from recycled paper, board and corrugated board.
Norm: SVI- Methode 2015.01


mineral oil_ residual content in food
Please choose this method, if the residual content of MOSH (Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons)/ POSH (Polyolefin Oligomeric Saturated Hydrocarbons) and MOAH (Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons) in food should be determined.
Norm: BfR-Methode


mineral oil_ residual content in packagings
Please choose this method, if the residual content of MOSH (Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons)/ POSH (Polyolefin Oligomeric Saturated Hydrocarbons) and MOAH (Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons) in the material should be determined.
Norm: BfR-Methode


mineral oil_ migration
Please choose this method, if the specific migration of MOSH (Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons)/ POSH (Polyolefin Oligomeric Saturated Hydrocarbons) and MOAH (Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons) with simulant E (Poly(2,6-diphenyl-p-phenylenoxid) (Tenax ®)) should be determined.
Norm: BfR-Methode nach Migration gemäß DIN EN 13130-1 bzw. DIN EN 14338
