According to the news on the WeChat public account of Hangzhou Market Supervision Administration on the 4th, the market season of bayberry and mulberry is approaching.
The article shows that from 10 batches of mulberries and 20 batches of bayberry, a total of 30 batches of fresh fruits in the season, 6 batches of bayberry were detected using sweeteners, of which 3 batches of cyclamate were detected, and 2 batches of sodium saccharin were detected.
The article stated that sodium cyclamate, sodium saccharin, and sucralose are well-known sweeteners, all of which are safe food additives approved by the state
Due to the extremely high sweetness of these sweeteners, only a small amount can be used to balance the slightly sour taste.
In this regard, the Hangzhou Municipal Administration for Market Regulation issued a consumer reminder:
It is recommended that consumers choose bayberry with full particles and a slightly darker color.
Except for Jiangxi bayberry that went on the market earlier in early May, bayberry is generally listed in early June to mid-June.
Consumers are advised to pay attention to the matching of appearance, color and taste, and be alert to the risk of using sweeteners when the fruit is small and light in color but tastes too sweet
Bayberry and mulberry have a short shelf life.
Bayberry and mulberry are high in fruit acid, and children and consumers with poor gastrointestinal function should not consume excessive amounts
