Additives, in the dictionary, mean agents that are added to a substance to improve certain properties of the substance. The understanding of the common people is of course to add some unnatural things in it! Since it is not natural, it is harmful, so any food containing additives becomes harmful to health.

Additives, in the dictionary, mean agents that are added to a substance to improve certain properties of the substance.

The fruits in the cans are still bright and bright in the year. The Kyoto bones in the restaurant are so red and attractive. The snacks on the trolleys are more colorful. Is the natural color of these foods so natural? I think we Many people may know that most of this is due to food additives.

As people's living standards continue to improve, a natural wind is blowing to the public. In the eyes of the people, only natural food is harmless and nutritious. For the added things, there are ancient idioms such as "adding oil and vinegar" and "adding branches and adding leaves". Today, there are fashionable nouns such as food additives, and people do not have ideas in their minds.

The food additive industry has also developed rapidly in order to maintain a variety of foods that can be kept fresh and tasty in various places. The food additives we use today mainly have the following categories:

1. Preservatives: substances used to prevent the activity or oxidation of microorganisms, such as benzoic acid and its sodium salt, sorbic acid and its potassium salt, ethyl p-hydroxybenzoate and the like.

Second, antioxidants: used to prevent the rancidity of the oil caused by superoxide free radicals. There are butyl hydroxyanisole (BHA) hydroxytoluene (BHT) , G, vitamin C, E, carotenoids and so on.

Third, synthetic sweetener: used in low-calorie soft drinks and diabetes foods. Such as sodium saccharin, cyclamate, aspartame, glycyrrhizin and so on.

Fourth, edible spices: more than 3,000 kinds of glutinous rice for the taste of natural foods, producing similar color, aroma effect. Such as chewing gum, fruit candy and so on.

Is food additive really as terrible as people say? Not necessarily.

First of all, among the above-mentioned major types of commonly used additives, vitamins, aspartame, lycopene and the like are themselves natural fish components and are available nutrients for the human body. For example, aspartame can be used as a substitute for sugar in diabetic patients. Its composition is one of the 18 amino acids normally required by the human body. It can be metabolized in the human body without raising blood sugar, and the sweetness is dozens of times that of sucrose. Beta-carotene, lycopene, etc. have been shown to have certain effects on anti-cancer and anti-aging. Second, most food additives approved by the state are low-toxic synthetics. For example, the median lethal dose of sorbic acid to mice is 4.2 grams per kilogram, that is, if used in an adult weighing 50 kilograms per day, To 210 grams, a toxic reaction may occur. According to the food hygiene regulations, the highest amount of sorbic acid used in food is 50 mg per kilogram, that is, 4200 kg of this food per day, which will cause toxicity. But people with a little common sense will know that this is simply impossible. Food hygiene regulations have strict limits on the dosage of food additives. At low doses, it is absolutely safe to use foods containing food additives.

Not long ago, in view of the recent criticism of food additives, a city decided not to use food coloring (a type of additive). I know that the next day, there were reports that some meat products of good quality were “pale” because of the color, and they were suspected of being of quality. The refusal to purchase caused serious unsalable sales. It. It can be seen that food additives have already penetrated people's lives.

Of course, food additives can also be hazardous to health. What is the situation?

Expired food additives that are as harmful or worse than expired foods;

Impure food additives such as mercury, aluminum, etc. are not removed;

Long-term excessive consumption of food additives;

Use food additives that have been banned.

Therefore, as long as we carefully understand the performance and role of food additives, carefully check the ingredients, usage and expiration date of the additives in the food, we can avoid the damage caused to our body and make full use of the role of food additives to add more to us. More delicious and fresh food, enriching our table.
