Union Government bans use of Potassium Bromate as food additive

Union Government bans use of Potassium Bromate as food additive
21 June 2016 Current Affairs: The Union Government has  banned use of potassium bromate (KbrO3)as a food additive on recommendation of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on 20 June 2016.

Early in May 2016, FSSAI in its recommendation asked health ministry to remove potassium bromate, a cancer causing chemical, from the list of permissible food additives.

The recommendation was made following a study by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) that claimed that potassium bromate, which is classified as a category 2B carcinogen, can be a cause of cancer to humans. 

CSE in study found that 84 percent of 38 commonly available brands of pre-packaged breads, including pav and buns, tested positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate (KIO3).

Besides, FSSAI has referred potassium iodate, also claimed to be carcinogenic used as a food additive, to a scientific panel.

These two food additives are banned in many countries and listed as hazardous for public health.
