Market characteristics of China's food additive industry

Word:[Big][Middle][Small] QR Code 2016/9/1     Viewed:    

At present, China's food additive industry has the following characteristics:
1. China's food additive regulation started late
The management of food additives in China started relatively late. China began to formally manage food additives in 1981 and promulgated the hygienic standard for the use of food additives (GB2760), which has a history of only 31 years. The management of food additives in the major developed countries has a history of more than 100 years. For example, Japan began to legislate on food additives since the Meiji Restoration period. In 2011, China promulgated a new standard for the use of food additives. Compared with the previous standards, the word "hygiene" was removed from the name and became the national food safety standard. There are more than 2300 kinds of food additives that can be used in the new standard, but only more than 700 kinds of food additives are allowed in the 1981 standard. The variety of food additives allowed to be used is increasing gradually.


2. China's food additives are developing rapidly
The development of food additives in China is relatively fast. Although the time for standardized management is not long, many kinds of food additives in China have been in the leading position in the world in terms of output and production technology, such as monosodium glutamate, citric acid, xylose, xylitol, saccharin sodium, sodium cyclamate, lysine, taurine, vitamin C, vanillin, ethyl maltol, etc.
3. China's food additive industry is relatively backward
Compared with the food additive industry of major developed countries, China's food additive industry is relatively backward, mainly reflected in the following aspects. First, there are fewer kinds of food additives allowed to be used. In China, there are more than 2300 kinds of food additives allowed to be used, and there are more than 5000 kinds of food additives in the United States. The most conservative statement in the world is more than 10000 kinds, and others are more than 25000. Second, the grade of food additives allowed to be used in China is relatively low. There are high-grade, medium grade and low-grade food additives, as well as advanced and backward ones. China's current situation is that there are more low-grade and backward food additives. For example, the preservative sodium benzoate, which is allowed to be used in soy sauce, has a low price and good antiseptic effect, but its grade is relatively low and it is not allowed to be used in Japan. The main reason why this kind of preservative is still used in China is that some high-grade preservatives can not be produced in China according to the existing technology, and the manufacturing cost of other high-grade preservatives It's too high for us to use right now. Third, the standard system of food additives is not perfect. There are two existing standards related to food additives in China. One is GB2760 "standard for use of food additives", the other is "Hygienic standard for the use of food nutrition fortifiers". There are more than 2500 kinds of food additives and more than 200 kinds of food nutrition fortifiers. Most of these products have no national standards, This has brought a lot of problems to the management, at the same time for food safety has also brought hidden dangers
4. Broad prospects for the development of food additives in China
The use and development of food additives is an objective reality which does not depend on people's likes and dislikes. The modernization of Chinese traditional food needs complementary food additives.
Our traditional foods, such as steamed bread, steamed buns, dumplings, etc., were all made at home in the past. Now they are produced by food factories, which are industrialized kitchens. The modernization of Chinese traditional food needs food additives. Chewing gum, beer, cola, bread, cake and chocolate, which are imported from the west, have been added with food additives from the beginning, which is taken for granted by the Chinese people. However, if we want to add some food additives to the traditional industrialized food in China, it seems difficult to accept it. However, whether it can be accepted or not, the development trend of food additives is blocked I can't live. Our consumers have to adapt to this process.
5. China's food additives will maintain a rapid development trend
China's food additives should adapt to the development speed of China's food industry. From 2000 to 2015, the average annual growth rate of China's food industry exceeded 25%, and this rapid development trend needs to be maintained. At the end of the 12th Five Year Plan, the output value of food enterprises above Designated Size in China exceeded 15 trillion yuan. Now the food industry is the largest manufacturing industry in China, and food additives will maintain the growth rate corresponding to the development of food industry.
