Role: Designer

Could you please advise what specific criteria is used to differentiate between food grade and non-food grade printing inks? For example, heavy metal levels or any solvent limits? Is the criteria used a worldwide or global standard?

Also, for those toluene-based printing inks, is there any regulated residual solvent limit for food packaging? Many thanks.
