core tip: after testing, it is found that the paper packaging products of 3 brands and 84 kinds of food bowls and cups use recycled paper or waste paper, and contain fluorescent substances that should not be contained in China's food paper. This is the news from the International Food Packaging Association

[China Packaging News] after testing three brands, 84 kinds of food bowls and cups and other paper packaging products, it is found that the paper outer packaging of some products uses recycled paper or waste paper, and contains fluorescent substances that China's food paper clearly stipulates should not contain. This is the news from the International Food Packaging Association

according to the person in charge of the association, after the Association disclosed the test results, some enterprises and the flour branch of the Chinese society of food science and Technology issued a statement saying that the inner paper bowl of the instant noodle container is enough to ensure food safety. From the perspective of environmental protection, recycled paper can also be recycled and applied to food packaging if it can not residual or remove harmful substances. But is this really the case? Can enterprises do it? The person in charge asked

It is understood that China currently implements a market access system for paper and plastic containers in contact with food, that is, products that are required to be included in the scope of the license must pass the production license issued by the national quality supervision department before they can be produced and sold. However, before issuing the production license, it is necessary to conduct on-site inspection and product testing on the production plant

according to the production license course of food packaging containers, tools and other products (paper products), it is clearly required that food paper packaging materials should use food paper or plastic products for this test, containers and other products, so as to ensure that the products are not polluted. That is, not only the inner paper in direct contact with food should meet the requirements of food paper, but also the outer packaging of products should meet the requirements of food grade. Although there are no requirements for the outer paper of double-layer paper bowls in China, there is no basis for the use of non food grade paper on the outer layer of paper bowls with reference to the regulatory requirements for certification conditions in China

many consumers have the habit of eating bowl noodles and drinking soup. The outer layer of the bowl is in contact with people's hands and mouth, so it is difficult to ensure that harmful substances will not harm consumers' health. The head of the association said

food paper packaging or the use of fluorescent brightener

in fact, China has long made clear provisions on the materials used in paper cups and bowls in the future. The national recommended standards of paper cup GB/T and paper bowl GB/T jointly issued by the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and quarantine and the National Standardization Administration Committee on December 5, 2011 and officially implemented on June 1, 2012 put forward clear requirements for the scope of application and the selection of raw and auxiliary materials. Paper bowl GB/T and paper cup GB/t clearly stipulate that recycled raw materials should not be used

as for additives for food containers and packaging materials, China's GB hygienic standard for the use of additives for food containers and packaging materials also has clear standards. Substances not specified in the list shall not be used for processing food containers and packaging materials, and fluorescent brighteners are not included in the list, so they shall not be used in the production process. In addition, the detailed rules for the implementation of the production license for food paper packaging, containers and other products issued by the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China in JUNE2007 also clearly requires that fluorescent brighteners shall not be used in the production process

the base paper used for paper cups and bowls shall comply with the national standard hygienic standard for base paper for food packaging GB, and the requirements for fluorescent substances of 254 nm and 365 nm are qualified. Analytical method for hygienic standard of base paper for food packaging (GB/T 5009) Fluorescence inspection: take five 100cm2 paper samples randomly from the sample and place them under the ultraviolet lamp with the wavelength of 365nm and 254nm for inspection. The maximum fluorescence area in any paper sample shall not be greater than 5cm2

according to the test results of the International Food Packaging Association, the outer package and inner package of a brand of instant noodles are also equipped with a pull table to load paper. The printing paper on the outermost layer of the paper cup shows an extremely bright blue after being irradiated by an ultraviolet lamp with a wavelength of 365 nm (that is, fluorescent brightener can be added, or fluorescent substances can be recovered in the waste paper). Another test result for the pollution degree of inner and outer packaging materials shows that after long-term stacking of the resin and outer substances on the contact surface between the inner layer and food, the evaporation residue index of the inner food packaging materials exceeds the standard, which indicates that there is mutual pollution in the mutual contact of products

many enterprises do not know the new standard for food packaging

in fact, in the base paper for food packaging (Exposure Draft) of the national standard for food safety issued by the Ministry of health of the people's Republic of China in August 2011, the definition of base paper for food packaging is modified to paper for direct packaging of food products, or paper for further processing such as coating, impregnation and compounding of other materials (aluminum, plastic, etc.). In other words, whether it is the paper itself, or the composite of paper and paper, plastic, aluminum, etc., the paper should meet the requirements of food packaging grade, and recycled paper is not allowed to be used. For sensory requirements, the draft added: normal color, no smell, no foreign matter, food grade base paper sensory test is qualified, but the waste paper will have peculiar smell and may be mixed with foreign matter

after many investigations, the International Food Packaging Association found that many enterprises were not aware that the new standard had been implemented, and they took it for granted to use non food grade paper for the outer layer

at present, although there are many standards related to food paper packaging in China, there is still a lack of important standards or important indicators. The phenomenon of intersection, overlap and even contradiction between existing standards is also serious, especially the standard implementation of double-layer structure products

it is reported that the Ministry of health will comprehensively start the systematic cleaning of more than 5000 food standards, and the cleaned standards may be reduced by half. It is suggested that in the standard cleaning work, the Executive Standards of the existing double-layer structure products and the raw and auxiliary materials for the production of double-layer products should be clearly specified, or the existing recommended national standards "paper cup" GB/T and "paper bowl" GB/t should be raised to mandatory, so as to standardize the production of enterprises
