Well-known chocolate is detected carcinogens?

Foreign media reported that Jinda Chocolate has been detected in Germany, there is a carcinogenic mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons, Germany's largest supermarket chain has begun to be a Qinda chocolate bar and do the recall. The news came out, many parents were shocked, even in China, which is also a well-known import brands, many people have eaten.
Why the chocolate will have mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons? The original packaging materials to blame. Shanghai Food Safety Work Association Secretary-General Jiang Peizhen introduction, there is no legal laws and regulations of food and food packaging paper in the mineral oil is limited, but the mineral oil on the metabolic research has been relatively clear, does not rule out the accumulation in the human body , But also need more in-depth toxicology research.
Are the packaging blame?
According to a German news site recently reported that the German food inspection organization Food-watch in the local market after a variety of snacks found 20 varieties, Kin Da chocolate bar (KinderReigel) and other three foods containing carcinogenic aromatic mineral oil, called the supplier recall. Among them, Jian Da chocolate bar in the mineral oil aroma content of the highest, reaching 1.2mg / kg.
However, the German Association of the snack industry argued that this chemical is found in the packaging, and the investigation refers to the mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbon content, can be safe to eat. German Confectionery Association also said that the mineral oil is now detected aromatic hydrocarbon content can be completely harmless decomposition of the human body, there is no need to recall, the risk is relatively small.
However, Germany's largest supermarket chain Aldi has begun to move this Qinda chocolate bar and do the recall. "The aroma mineral oil content is not acceptable in food," said Foodwatch member. "You can not see it, but it does not come out, but it does not recommend consumers to buy these foods."
As a brand of the Ferrero Group, Ferrero spokesman also said that the main source of mineral oil in food is the printing ink inside the mineral oil into the recycled packaging materials, and through the packaging materials in the transfer of recycled fiber , Appear in the food or raw materials which will be introduced through technical research related solutions.
Mineral oil will accumulate in the body
According to the "National Standard for Food Safety", the function of mineral oil is defoamer, release agent, anti-sticking agent and lubricant. The scope of use includes fermentation process, candy and potato chips, according to Jiang Peizhen, secretary general of Shanghai Food Safety Association. And soy products processing technology. In view of the current study, the migration of mineral oil to food / food mimics in food wrapping paper is almost all beyond the specific migration specified by the Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives. Foods of different shelf life will vary depending on the length of storage.
Jiang Peizhen said that the current mineral oil on the metabolic research has been relatively clear. Mineral oil active through the small intestine and liver metabolism for fatty acids and fatty alcohols, but can not rule out its accumulation in the human body. Mineral oil is mainly accumulated in the body's liver, kidney, spleen and mesenteric lymph nodes.
According to reports, there are no laws and regulations clearly on food and food packaging paper in the mineral oil to limit, but the Food Additives Joint Committee of Experts and the European Food Safety Authority has different mineral oil daily allowable intake, toxicological characteristics , A specific amount of migration done a lot of research work. Mineral oil toxicity on the human body is still in-depth, in the liver toxicity, reproductive toxicity, genotoxicity and carcinogenicity and other aspects of a certain progress, but different types of mineral oil caused by the toxicity of a unified definition, the need for more in-depth Toxicology study.
The EU Food Safety Authority says it is difficult to determine the risk of exposure to aromatic mineral oil, but mineral oil is carcinogenic and will accumulate in adipose tissue. In view of the potential carcinogenicity of some mineral oil components is underestimated, it is considered that the repeated use of mineral oil has a potential risk.
3 years old children do not eat chocolate
In our country, the more common health of the chocolate for the health of the fun and healthy and happy children. The vibrant interior is filled with milk and hazelnut, and the outside is covered by crispy chocolate. Jinda Qiao egg is a shape like duck eggs, containing milk and crisp chocolate ball, toys, egg-shaped chocolate. Foreign media mentioned by the health of the chocolate bar in Taobao and other sites can also be found, 10 loaded price in the 50-70 yuan range, the taste is milk sandwich. Most of these products claim the German purchasing or direct mail in Germany.
According to the assessment, the dietary exposure of minors was higher than that of adults and the elderly, and children aged 3-10 were the daily maximum dietary exposure.
China Food and Drug Administration issued a safety reminder, chocolate fat and sugar content is higher, the energy is also high, the proportion of nutrients does not meet the needs of children's growth and development, children need to come from a wide range of balanced diet to provide growth and development needs Of the nutrition, if too much food may make the normal laws of life and eating habits are disrupted, and cause tooth decay. At the same time, due to the high content of polyphenols in chocolate, it is not recommended for children under 3 years of age to eat chocolate.
In addition, due to the low moisture content of chocolate, should be stored in a cool dark place, so a small number of times to buy.
