Clean Smoke

Purified smoke for a conscious, healthy and sustainable diet. Product and environmentally friendly smoking without ashes, tar and PAHs.

not to analyse solids individually, but
analyse the smoke and the smoked products
for hazardous substances.

Renewal of primary smoke products

Purified primary smoke products are used in the CleanSmoke smoking process. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has recently recommended to the EU Commission that their authorisation should not be extended, due to a scientifically inadequate single substance analysis – this would mean the end of the product and environmentally friendly smoking process.
