Rice to Be China’s Next Great Toxic Food?

This is from the chinadaily and ‘chinese expert’s’ hahahahaahahha, say that certain additives are safe. We must remember that some chinese experts-hahhaahah, also said that melamine is not bad either. Anyway, these clows said that certain additives are safe. I think we will see that they are cancerous or hazardous in some way shape or form. Or why else would the government here support them.

In response to media reports questioning the revised National Standard for Food Additives, the Ministry of Health issued a statement on Saturday, saying two additives – sodium diacetate and chitosan – were permissible for rice, and that a thickening agent – sodium starch phosphate – can be used in some rice products, such as rice noodles.

In the statement, Wang Zhutian, deputy director of the Fortified Food Office (FFO) under the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said sodium diacetate is a widely used preservative in grain, rice and pastry, and chitosan is a coating agent used in rice. Both can help retain freshness and prevent mildew.
