Dairy Farm Equipment 2018

Published on April 27, 2018

While the evidence of adverse health effects of ortho-phthalate plasticizers has resulted in a prohibition of the use of most phthalates in food contact materials for fatty foods, including dairy, in the EU, U.S. FDA has not imposed any similar restrictions. Testing of commercial dairy products has demonstrated the presence of phthalates – particularly in those products with higher fat content and subject to greater processing. Studies, especially in Belgium, have shown that while later steps in product preparation can contribute significantly to the levels of phthalates in products, significant phthalate levels are often present already in the raw milk from dairy farms. This study is one part of a broader effort to understand the sources of phthalates at dairies and to develop strategies to eliminate those sources.
