When can a glove be declared suitable for food?
When it does not release chemicals in processed foods, i.e. when it is not harmful to health and does not alter the organoleptic characteristics of foods. Therefore, in order to be declared suitable for food, a product must undertake to carry out tests (global migration in food simulants), which mimic glove behavior in contact with all food categories (aqueous, acidic, alcoholic, Milk, Oils and Fats) in accordance with current regulations (Reg. CE 1935/2004, DM 21.3.73, Reg. EU 10/2011 and subsequent updates and amendments).
