I did a project on Erythropoetin injections and polysorbate 80. it is an emulsifier but at least for erythropoetin drugs, it allowed the plastic packaging of the drug to leach into the IV drug solution. (You might be able to find the study...polysorbate 80 and epoetin leachates) NOT GOOD for IV injections and caused the particular epoetin to be outlawed in Europe.
It probably also allows plastic packaging (and BPA from cans) to leach into the food solution more readily. I wouldn't personally want more plastic in my food...
