BPA mollecule

19 IV 2023 - EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) sets the BPA tolerable daily intake from 4 micrograms (or 4000 nanograms) per kilogram of body weight per day to 0.2 nanograms.

EFSA reminded bisphenol A in food is a health risk and recommended to UE and Member States for new setting limits on the amount of a chemical that may migrate from food packaging into food.

Data about the BPA concentration in water packaged in polycarbonate bottles are available on ANSES website (https://www.anses.fr/fr/system/files/CHIM2009sa0331Ra-0.pdf - sorry in French page 145) and on the government of Canada website (https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/food-nutrition/food-safety/packaging-materials/bisphenol/survey-bisphenol-bottled-water-products.html pages 8-9) with average values from 67 to 4208 ng/l and 500 à 8820 ng/l. The lower values reported here in water packaged in polycarbonate bottles are higher than the limits introduced by EFSA from the first sip of water (30 ml makes about 2,01 ng of BPA)! This literature also confirmed there is no BPA in PET bottles.
