Frequently asked questions on bisphenol F in mustard

BfR FAQ, 17 November 2015

In the course of food monitoring bisphenol F (BPF) was found in mustard samples. It was initially suspected that the substance migrated from the food packaging material into the mustard, but analysis has not confirmed this suspicion. BPF is probably formed during the production process from a naturally occurring ingredient in white mustard. The BfR has conducted an assessment to determine whether the occurrence of BPF in mustard poses a potential health risk to the consumer. After carefull analysis of the currently available data and consideration of the relevance of the lack of data, the BfR regarded it as being unlikely based on current knowledge,  that, the consumption of mustard containing BPF poses a health risk to the consumer.
