Industry News - 2009-3-10

Do you Know the food additives of non-natural plant extract?

For a long time, the added ingredients in processed foods in the end is safe, has been the focus of attention. Recently, the U.S. Web MD published the latest research results of the most controversial five added ingredients, "Life Times" reporter interviewed a Fan Zhihong, associate professor at the China Agricultural University and the interpretation.

Many synthetic pigment natural plant extracts. In many fruit-flavored water, fruit powder, sherbet, soft drinks, a large number of applications in the preparation of wine, red and green silk, canned food. A British study published in 2007, "The Lancet magazine, artificial colors intake will exacerbate the child's ADHD symptoms. To this end, the European Food Standards Agency require food manufacturers to proactively disable artificial colors. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been to allow the use of artificial colors approved.

For this regards, Fan Zhihong said children should avoid intake of artificial colors crowd the most. In order to please the children, many children foods containing a variety of artificial colors, this parents should be vigilant. Choice of children's food, you should try to stay away from the color is too bright.

High-fructose corn syrup. This is a syrup made from corn, is not only used in candy, carbonated beverages more common. In one view, it would increase the risk of obesity and risk of type 2 diabetes.

U.S. experts believe that from a biochemical perspective, high fructose corn syrup and sucrose are sugar, not much different. The American Medical Association recently issued a statement, saying there was no sufficient evidence to support this view "high-fructose corn syrup is worse than sucrose"; if the intake of too much, they will damage your health. In this regard, FAN Zhi explains, in the strict sense, the high-fructose corn syrup does not count as a food additive, in fact, and sucrose are sugar have calories, just tastes sweet, as well as water retention, drink this kinds of syrup formulated beverage, people almost do not feel full, unknowingly will drink more, and thus may increase obesity risk.

Sodium nitrite. Is widely used in the meat processing, sausage, canned meat, etc. containing such additives. U.S. One theory is that high intake of sodium nitrite will lead to gastric cancer. In China, the use of sodium nitrite stringent requirements, the maximum amount of 0.15 grams per thousand gram meat products, sausages allow the addition of 0.03 g. As long as it does not often, a lot of eating processed meat can reduce the intake of sodium nitrite.

Sodium benzoate. British food experts believe that drinks containing sodium benzoate and vitamin C at the same time these two ingredients may interact to form benzene. Benzene is a carcinogen. But this argument has not yet been agreed with chemical experts. Sodium benzoate itself in the human body metabolism, and discharged through the daily urine nontoxic; daily enters the body through breathing benzene, benzene intake than drinking soft drinks and more fruits, vegetables and dairy products contain a small amount of benzene ; smoking, automobile exhaust, and paint, washing powder contain benzene. However, experts advise, sodium benzoate in the body's metabolism in the liver area, poor liver function, it is recommended to drink bverages.Aspartame (a non-sugar sweetener). It is as a sweetener widely used to flavor yogurt, canned fruit, rice pudding, jelly, bread, and so on. It has triggered a variety of health concerns, such as the cause of cancer, epilepsy, headache, and affect intelligence. However, large-scale study shows that aspartame with the disease and there is no direct contact. In the past 23 years, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has 26 confirmed its safety. Fan Zhihong said, the sweetness of aspartame is 200 times that of sugar, the amount of food is minimal, and therefore it is not like sugar as increasing dietary calories.
Fan Zhihong said that the pursuit of sensual pleasure and convenient, it is inevitable and food additives intimate contact, so you do not see it as a poison or a scourge. Its order certain food additives anxious, it is better to eat more fresh and natural, a shorter shelf life, color and taste of plain food, so naturally away from excessive additives, can be more healthy ingredients.
