Why does China not ban non-dairy creamer?

Recently, when revising the composition of food pyramid in the United States, it has been clearly pointed out that attention should be paid to trans fatty acids, and manufacturers are required to indicate the content of trans fatty acids in products. For this reason, oil manufacturers have also developed new hydrogenation technology. Trans fatty acids will not be produced in the hydrogenation process, and have been used in some products to replace the original fat powder containing trans fatty acids. The World Health Organization and European and American countries have made suggestions and regulations on the safe upper limit of daily intake (2G) and the proportion of trans fatty acids in food (1%).

It has good instant solubility, flavors and flavors are similar to “milk”, and can replace milk powder or reduce milk consumption in food processing, so that the production cost can be reduced on the premise of keeping the product quality stable. In foreign countries, it is not prohibited, but it is stipulated that no more than 2% will be banned.

The possible reason why China does not ban it is that trans fatty acids are not very harmful. FDA, who and other agencies believe that eating 2 grams of trans fatty acids a day has no significant impact on human health, so it is allowed to have a certain amount of trans fatty acids in food.

If the cream is only used as a coffee whitening agent, the human body’s daily intake is very difficult to exceed 2G; therefore, there are still many creamers in the U.S. market that are produced with hydrogenated oil. If you drink milk powder or use it as raw material to make other food, you may eat too much trans fatty acid, which has a certain impact on human health.

Therefore, the daily diet choice, or pay attention to light health, control the corresponding food intake, then the follow-up health problems will not appear, other problems will be negligible. We don’t need to worry too much about the end products of vegetable fat. We will not cause too much influence in our daily life. We can drink milk tea happily.
