This test records the impurities present in paper that could MIGRATE to the packed food product under prolonged storage. A limit of 0.5 mg per square inch of paper is assigned by the US FDA as the maximum permissible impurity level (Global Migration Value) in paper or paperboard. Against this maximum limit of 0.5 mg per square inch, our paper has yielded a value of only 0.006 mg per square inch.
Our paper has also been tested as per CONEG (Washington DC) guidelines for toxic / heavy metals. CONEG has set a limit of 100 ppm for EACH toxic / heavy metal. In our case, even the TOTAL of all the metals put together comes to only 12.1 ppm.
