Plasticizers are in All China Wines: CADA
   2012-11-20 20:10:10    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Yihang

The China Alcoholic Drinks Association (CADA) said on Monday that plasticizers universally exist in wines produced in China, the Beijing News reports.

The statement was made in response to a recent report that said plasticizer in China's wine products exceed legal standards.

The CADA, a voluntary industry-based national non-profit social organization, said high-quality wines contain high doses and low-quality wines have a low content. It also said that plasticizer content in wines is still in the research phase.

Website 21cbh.com reported on Monday that a wine product from Jiugui Liquor Company Ltd. was found to have DEHP, DIBP and DBP. The content of DBP in the wine was 1.08mg/kg which is 2.6 times more than the allowed standard of 0.3mg/kg, according to the Ministry of Health's relative regulations on DBP.

As a response to 21cbh's report, Jiugui Liquor Company Ltd. clarified saying that they don't acknowledge the third party's findings.

An insider from Jiugui Liquor Company Ltd. says that, as China does not check for plasticizers in wine, their enterprise has not done plasticizer inspections. Products have since been sent for inspection.

A plasticizer contamination scandal swept the food and beverage sector in Taiwan in 2011.
