More specifically, EC 1935/2004 states that the materials and articles that come into contact with food during the production process must not, under any circumstance, transfer substances to the food that can:
- endanger human health,
- bring about an unacceptable change in the composition of the food,
- bring about a deterioration in the organoleptic characteristics of the food, i.e. cannot affect the appearance, smell or taste of the product.
The strictness of the EC 1935/2004 regulation means that food processors must take extreme care that their products are not adversely affected by the equipment that is used to create them. This means that the ideal pumping technology in these circumstances is one that does not allow the food product to come into excessive contact with various parts of the pump, or allow outside contaminants to enter the production cycle.
