可口可乐公司宣布弃用溴化植物油

2014-05-06    来源:网络    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

全球最大饮料制造商可口可乐公司近日宣布将于年底前停止使用颇受争议饮料成分:溴化植物油(BVO),而其竞争对手百事公司在去年就宣布,旗下运动饮品佳得乐将停止使用该成分。

溴化植物油(英语:Brominated vegetable oil;缩写作BVO)是一种把植物油溴化后制成的食物添加剂,可在柑橘味道的饮料里作起云剂之用。

溴化植物油在食品工业的应用始于1931年,其作用是增加油份的密度,使其与水份更容易混和。

由于溴是一种对人类存在毒性的元素,联合国粮食及农业组织、世界卫生组织食物添加剂联合专家委员会已对溴化植物油的安全作评估,认为溴化植物油不该用于食品添加剂。现时世上有不少国家都已禁用(如日本,英国等),但在美国仍然可以合法使用。

The world's largest beverage-maker, Coca-Cola, plans to remove a controversial ingredient from its drinks by the end of this year following an online petition.

Brominated vegetable oil, or BVO, is found in drinks such as Fanta but is banned in Europe and Japan.

It will be replaced after concerns an element of the additive is also found in flame retardants.

Rival Pepsi removed the chemical from its Gatorade sports drink last year.

A Pepsi spokesman said it also had wider plans to stop using BVO and had "been actively working to remove it from the rest of our product portfolio".

Pepsi uses the ingredient in its Mountain Dew and Amp Energy drinks.

However, Coca-Cola spokesman Josh Gold stressed the move to remove BVO was not an issue of safety.

"All of our beverages, including those with BVO, are safe and always have been - and comply with all regulations in the countries where they are sold," he said in a statement.

"The safety and quality of our products is our highest priority."
