In the specific case of packaging, sensory analyses enable to understand if the container maintains the organoleptic characteristics of the food unchanged or if they change due to volatile substances migrating into it. This property belonging to containers in contact with food is also a requirement envisaged by Art. 3 of EC Regulation 1935/2004.
