Additives in red caviar


Currently, manufacturers of any food production add to their products are different preservatives, sweeteners, thickeners, and the like.All this significantly reduces the cost of the product.But in the pursuit of profit makers forget that all this chemistry does not lead to good.Many food additives lead to disease until the cancer.Furthermore, in the production constantly experiment added a particular additive and look at the result.For canning caviar producers not once changed preservatives.

Preservatives last

Already in distant 60s of the 20th century additions in the calf were very popular.As these drugs are used boron, such as boric acid and borax.But eventually we found that the drill has a toxic and carcinogenic action and the ability to accumulate in the body, leading to various pathologies.Therefore, these additives have been banned.In the search for a suitable preservative sodium benzoate were investigated, methenamine, nisin, sodium ascorbate, benzoic acid, antibiotics,

sorbic acid.From all this diversity it has been allocated sorbic acid and hexamine, as substances, least toxic.

In the mid 90-ies were studies of some preservatives and parabens (different esters of p-hydroxybenzoic acid).It was found their influence on the taste quality of eggs, as well as a negative impact on flora and research project was abandoned.In addition, the use of parabens - the cause of the cancer.

Preservatives this

Until 2008, the main preservative in red caviar were methenamine and sorbic acid.But it turned out that methenamine or dry alcohol, as it is called in the people, is dangerous.Once in the stomach, under the action of gastric juice, it decomposes with the release of formaldehyde - highly toxic substance that, when ingested, affects the eyes, kidneys, liver and nervous system.

Since July 1, 2009 in the Russian Federation passed a law prohibiting the use hexamine as a supplement to the red caviar.As an alternative, suggested to be used instead of sodium benzoate hexamine addition to sorbic acid.But honestly, sodium benzoate - a preservative is also far from harmless.Its frequent use in food will lead to serious consequences for the organism.

Looking at other countries, the US and Europe for a long time such a law is valid, but in Ukraine are still working with hexamine.Therefore, buying eggs, be sure to refer to the country - the manufacturer and the composition of calves.
