On a daily basis we are exposed to numerous chemical substances from many different sources. When exposed to a mixture of numerous chemicals simultaneously, the mixture can have a significant negative effect even at low exposure levels. DTU National Food Institute researches the large number of potentially harmful chemical substances and assesses the consequences in regards to food safety with particular focus on endocrine disruptors, cocktail effects and the development of computer models that can predict the harmful effects.

PFAS found in organic eggs in Denmark
The environmental contaminant PFAS has been found in organic egg yolks in Denmark. Especially children who eat many organic eggs are at risk. The substances are most likely transferred via fishmeal, which is included in feed for the hens. This was found in a study from the DTU National Food Institute carried out in collaboration with the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration.
