- The usage scope expansion of caramel color (ammonia sulphite process) may further promote the Mexican Tequila import in future.
On Jan. 28, 2019, China CFSA consulted on the new application scopes of sodium stearoyl lactylate, iron oxide red, and caramel colour (ammonia sulphite process). Any comments shall be sent back prior to Feb. 27, 2019.
|Food additive||Function||New application scope||dosage|
|stearoyl lactylate||emulsifier, stabilizer||other fat and fat products|
|iron oxide red||colorant||collagen protein casing||as appropriate|
|caramel color (ammonia sulphite process)||colorant||other distilled liquors (Tequila)||1.0g/kg|
The scope expansion of caramel color (ammonia sulphite process) may further promote the import of Mexican Tequila in future because although the import restriction of Mexican Tequila was removed in 2013, the use of caramel color in Tequila was previously not allowed in China.
