China to Draw up Blacklist of Dangerous Ingredients

As the EU bans soy products made in China following another scare, Chinese authorities have announced the creation of a dangerous food additives blacklist. From Reuters:

China is to publish a blacklist of food additives which make products taste better or appear nutritious but are damaging to health, state media said, as it struggles to restore faith in the “made in China” brand.

[…] The additives blacklist would be constantly updated, Health Ministry official Su Zhi told Chinese television.

The government would also aim to set specific rules for different sectors of the food industry, starting with dairy products, and unify current regulations which vary across the country, the official China Daily said.
