At present, food additives alone can not meet the needs of food additives production, food additives synergism, versatility, reduce the side effects of a single additive, rapid economic growth and other advantages of the combination has become the main trend of food additives development
According to the China Food and Drug Administration, PRC, 217 companies have been licensed to produce food additives: compounds with consistency, coloring additives, composite preservatives, acidity regulators, dehumidifiers, food flavorings, and compounded water retention agents.
Participate in the uniform terminology of food additives. Additives are physical mixing processes that should not produce chemical reactions or lead to the emergence of new compounds. A food additive that contains at least two of the food additives listed in GB 2760 and specified in the supplemental announcement must meet the requirements of GB 2760 (note: a food additive consisting of a food additive and a composition that is not a food additive) is a combined food additive.
For example, caramel and taro powder are mixed with food additives, among which caramel belongs to a single food additive GB 2760. Taro powder is a common food raw material, so these two combinations are not included in the compound. It should be noted that under the regulations governing food additives used in marketing and catering, in addition to the words "food additives", it is also necessary to indicate the amount of each food additive and the "retail" label.
