Baking powder Ingredients:
Sodium bicarbonate, acid phosphate, disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate
aluminum sulfate, sodium aluminum sulfate, filler
Application of Baking powder:
Salt and acid come into contact with water to produce carbon dioxide gas, which causes cakes, snacks, etc. to expand. The increase in bread is the use of yeast to decompose the starch to produce carbon dioxide to make the bread grow, but sometimes it is reinforced with baking powder.
Depending on the demand of the product, the overall formulation is determined by 0.5-3%.
Aluminum exists in nature:
Aluminum is one of the minerals in nature. It can be found everywhere, such as water, food, etc., but as long as it is not excessively consumed, it will not cause health hazards.
Source of aluminum in hair powder:
Aluminium sulphate and sodium aluminum sulphate contain aluminum. Now no one has used it, other salty baking soda, acid phosphate, acid sodium pyrophosphate. The raw material source is made from natural ore. I have not noticed the effect of aluminum content on the human body. Up to now, there is no standard value for aluminum in hair powder in Europe and the United States. In China and Japan alone, the content of aluminum in finished products is limited to 100 PPM or less. Whether this information should be explained and explained by the government to the people, do not let the media and the Internet have different opinions that cause misunderstanding. The R&D department has written to the TFDA to provide our standard interpretation method to the government department. Their answers are as follows to the Third Reading of the Legislative Yuan.
According to the TFDA: Remove the baking powder category
Gao Yiting said that the baking powder regulations are not clear, which makes food management difficult. Because the baking powder is a mixture of several expansion agents, it is a compound food additive and should be composed of approved single food additives. Remove existing synthetic expander projects.
Gao Yiting said that the synthetic expansion agent regulations are not clear, which makes food management difficult. Because the baking powder is a mixture of several expansion agents, it is a compound food additives so the baking power project is deleted.
