According to the Voice of China "Global Chinese Radio Network reports, according to the latest news of the official website of the Ministry of Health, the intention to revoke the use of 2,4 - dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and other 38 kinds of food additives, and to the public for comments. Yellow pigment of which, there is tea, tea green pigment of up to 17 kinds of various types of coloring agents. Food management experts, Nanjing Agricultural University, Professor Zhou Ying Heng stressed that these additives do not involve safety issues, just do not have the technical necessity.
Should be constant: this additive is now canceled The first is a legitimate use in the past, should be said that basically guaranteed. Announced as the news department in charge of the reasons to add or cancel some additives from the Ministry of Health is concerned, one is the original additives may have side effects, we may have to cancel; In addition, the role of new and better additives. we use the product to replace it with better performance; Third, it may not be very necessary, is dispensable, it should be, or to take advantage of, because food safety is concerned about the relatively high degree of
Not unsafe, just unnecessary. The notion that the Frenchman who focus on quality of life, is most evident. Li told us, living in France, in France, the food additives market is small, because the "fresh" is the pursuit of all things standard.
Li: Frenchman on the freshness of the food is very fancy, such as food in the supermarket inside as long as it is natural, he must have the logo on the BIO-natural words, things will be more expensive, but inside the supermarket filled with such things. There will be many small supermarkets, small bakery in the vicinity of a place to live generally stands ready to provide the freshest stuff. And I think they eat a blind trust, think as long as store things certainly can eat.
Course, the French food additives, and this has a specific requirement.
Li: France, things are also there will be food additives, the first Europe itself on food additives, a universal standard, the French bill on the basis of a law in 1997, the functions of food additives, the role of quality There are very detailed provisions. After 2000 people still think that even if the law within a dose range of legitimate food additive, but may or health hazards, people began to try less use of food additives.
Additives are not a necessity? The answer to this question, I am afraid more is that the mindset of the people. China Agricultural University, Institute of Food Nutrition and Food Safety, Associate Professor, Department of FAN Zhi, for example, some additives in fact consumers are demanding that it be added on the inside, nothing to do with food quality.
FAN Zhi-hong: For example, we drink a bottle of soda, if it is orange flavor or grape, you certainly hope that its color is the color of oranges or grapes, although the beverage inside is not so much juice; we like incense, so has given us to add flavor; we like pretty people you add pigment; we like the taste of fresh, it was the increase of air fresheners. So if we want to stay away from food additives, the most important thing is not too much in pursuit of the color, smell, taste, shape and taste.
Chinese people eat to pay attention to the "color", "sweet" taste "taste, but a scientific point of view, before the three" healthy "probably more worthy of pursuit. This point, as in Japan in recent years to reflect the contents.
Special correspondent of the Global Chinese Radio Network in Japan, Huang Xueqing: Japan's list of food additives into the specified additives, additives, existing outside of the additives into four categories, manufacture, import, sale of the above list, are a violation of the Food Sanitation Law. Japan also provides that the principles of food additives on the need to have all indicated in the label, consumers can make some judgments and choices. Although some experts pointed out that there is no clear scientific evidence that the food additive-free food is certainly more healthy than eating food containing additives, but Japanese additive-free products or more trust.
Many Japanese families have become accustomed to the use of seasonings for cooking with a lot of additives, which makes some of the additives industry in Japan professionals from the social conscience levels reflect. Abe is known as "Japan the additives God" in his book, the Secretary said, in addition to the public's right to know, in addition to the outside of the old craft was abandoned because of food additives and food culture, he is more concerned about is the modern food industry and facilitate the life to change the mind. Additives opposed to the Japanese also believe that, and have lost a lot of precious things in life more convenient and affluent at the same time.
