As per available reports about 17 Conferences, 2 Workshops and 9 Relevant Journals are presently dedicated exclusively to Chemicals in food and about 200 articles are being published on Chemicals in food.
Chemicals in food can be either biological or non-biological and food chemistry deals with the study of the interactions of these compounds with the biologic systems. The risk of exposure to environmental carcinogens and several other toxic chemicals is intensified due to the Modern food-production methods. Involuntarily we get exposed to chemicals in the form of pesticides sprayed on crops, antibiotics used on poultry, and hormones given to cattle. Some of these exposures elevate the risk of cancer.
Different Toxic Chemicals include Bisphenol A, Phthalates, Styrene, Vinyl Chloride. Pesticides include Atrazine, 2,4-D, Chlordane and Malathion, 2,4,5-TP, DDT, Dieldrin & Aldrin, Heptachlor etc.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members.

OMICS International Conferences focuses to enhance knowledge dissemination among its varied range of participants including eminent speakers, renowned scientists, industrialists from top notch companies, young researchers and students. OMICS International Pharma conferences foster the better understanding of latest scientific researches by providing a global exposure to its participants where they can associate with relatable professionals. The scope of these gatherings is further extended by encompassing remarking key areas like Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs, Mass Spectrometry, Separation Techniques, Toxicology , Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Toxicogenomics, Pain Medicine, Clinical Pharmacy, GMP and GLP quality control, followed by Bioavailability and Bioequivalence studies, Biosimilars and Pharmacognosy.
Scope and Importance:
Due to the changing lifestyles of people it is very important to ensure safe and abundant food supply and thus enabling people to stay healthier. The production-to-consumption food system is complex, This vast food system includes agricultural production and harvesting, holding and storing of raw materials, food manufacturing (formulation, food processing, and packaging and in all these processes variable amounts of chemicals are added in the form of preservatives, pesticides etc. This arises the need to study regarding various chemicals which are added to food.
Nowadays majority of foods found with the dangerous chemicals. In order to preserve the food for more days chemical additives will be added into the food. Majority of foods found on supermarket are loaded with potentially dangerous chemical additives, preservatives and other harmful substances. An antioxidant preservative called propyl gallate will be added most food products in which can extends the life of oils and fats for example, mostly in meat products, chicken soup base, vegetable oil and chewing gum may cause cancer. And this antioxidant may cause the cancer. And this propyl gallate is often used with Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT). Some studies have revealed that both BHA and BHT source to cause the cancer in rats.
Artificial sweeteners are used in many food products and mostly in diet foods, soft drinks, and also as a tabletop sugar alternative. Numerous animal studies have proven that it causes cancer of the skin, blood vessels, ovaries, uterus, bladder and various other organs. And even an important study carried out by the National Cancer Institute found that it does certainly cause bladder cancer.
Overall, there are over 3,000 food chemicals knowingly added to our food supply in order to preserve the food, as colouring agents and as flavor enhancers.
Most food products are considered as “healthy” and labeled as “natural” but these are with contain a lot of harmful chemicals used as food preservatives and flavor enhancers, and these chemicals are often disguised under unrecognizable names. There are many dangerous and hidden food ingredients are seen in healthy foods. Such as Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT), Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), Yellow #5, Propylene glycol alginate (E405), Polysorbate 60 and many more.
Population increase will drive the global market for products toward the emerging regions and increase prices in the developed world
The demand for green, safe, and healthy products represents a congruence of trends that expands the potential product and/or market opportunity
Rising raw material costs, and the associated difficulties with transferring the increase to customers, will likely affect profit margins during the next decade
The use of pesticides is the highest in Industrial countries followed by East and South East Asia, South Asia, Latin America and the least usage is in the Sub-Saharan Africa region.
