Saint-Gobain Process Systems -- In May of 2013, FoodProductionDaily.com tackled the issue of phthalates in an article covering a collaborative study by researchers at New York University (NYU) Langone Medical Centre, University of Washington, Penn State University School of Medicine and University of Cincinnati. The findings, which link DEHP to raised systolic blood pressure, have been published in the Journal of Pediatrics. The article demonstrates a growing concern around materials containing DEHP and phthalates which can come into contact with food and beverage products throughout the processing and packaging supply chain.
