The influence of electron beam irradiation on migrational behaviour of additives present in food packaging material was studied. The migration experiments were carried out on irradiated and non-irradiated polypropylene pouches containing aqueous food simulating liquids (FSL) for 10 days at 40 degrees C. The controls were irradiated and non-irradiated pouches without FSL contact. After the contact period, the polypropylene and the FSL were analysed. A comparison between the results obtained by the two analyses showed the migration of three products of antioxidant degradation from the polypropylene into the FSL, and a partial decomposition of these migrants in the FSL.
