Exposure to Bisphenol A via food is very limited

01 May 2018

Calculations carried out by RIVM indicate that the total intake of Bisphenol A (BPA) via food in the Netherlands is very limited. Even under the most unfavourable circumstances, the exposure would still be a factor of 30 times less than the current tolerable daily intake (TDI).
This study is a follow-up of a previous study by RIVM (2016) which drew attention to new information about the TDI of BPA . The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is currently re-evaluating this health limit. Pending this study, the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS) asked RIVM to investigate which food sources contributed most to the exposure of BPA in the Netherlands (RIVM, 9 April 2018).
