How To Buy Canned Food
- Aug 29, 2018 -

In order to buy healthy and safe canned food, you need to pay attention to "three look".

First, see if the ingredients list contains preservatives. There are many kinds of additives as preservative foods, such as sorbic acid, benzoic acid, etc., but according to the relevant regulations of the state, canned foods should not contain preservatives. Some illegal enterprises use preservatives to cover their improper management of the hygienic environment during food processing, and inhibit the proliferation of microorganisms in food to prolong the shelf life of food.

Second, see if the color is natural. Edible coloring is allowed in some canned foods, but the amount of use and scope of use must be controlled within national standards. At present, some unscrupulous companies in the market have exceeded the standard for the use of pigments, or the use of pigments in excess of the scope, and even the use of national standards does not allow the use of pigments in canned foods, such as amaranth, lemon yellow, carmine and so on.

Third, look at the contents of the label in the package is complete and clear. First of all, look at whether the outer packaging is neat and clean, whether the writing is clear and the label is complete and regular. The canned food labels produced by regular manufacturers are complete and clear, and should be marked with the product name, factory name, factory address, ingredient list, net content, solid content, implementation standard code, quality grade, and shelf life. Secondly, you should purchase the products during the warranty period. Also depends on whether the canned food is deformed.
