This document, part of EN 13130, specifies an analytical procedure for the determination of vinyl acetate in the four conventional EU food simulants, water, 10 % (v/v) ethanol aqueous solution; 3 % (w/v) acetic acid aqueous solution and olive oil or an approved substitute. The level of vinyl acetate monomer determined is expressed as milligrams of vinyl acetate per kilogram of food simulant. The method is appropriate for the quantitative determination of vinyl acetate in approximate analyte concentration range of 1,2 mg/kg to 24 mg/kg food simulant.
