      Titanium dioxide does not harm health,A safe and non-toxic food additive - titanium dioxide, international food hygiene and food additives, such as the competent organization (JECFA), (CAC), (FDA), (EFSA) in the food additive use regulations stipulate that titanium dioxide can be widely used in food In the case of flour and pasta, there is no restriction on the ADI value of titanium dioxide used in foods. This fully demonstrates that titanium dioxide is a very safe food additive that is not toxic to humans.

This fully demonstrates that titanium dioxide is a very safe food additive that is not toxic to humans.

 

      Titanium dioxide is used as a diluent in improvers such as bread, noodles, and steamed bread. The purpose of the titanium dioxide is to make the enzyme preparations (such as fungal α-amylase, noodle browning inhibitor, etc.) used for bread, noodles, and steamed bread improvers uniform. It is added to the flour to improve the dispersibility of the product. It can replace the thinner calcium carbonate (limestone) and calcium sulfate (gypsum) which have been allowed in the flour in China. Titanium dioxide is generally used in an amount of about 30% in a modifier. The use of titanium dioxide not only makes the flour very good, but also has good safety. The content of titanium dioxide added to the flour by such a modifier is generally less than 1/10,000, which is far lower than the national regulations (the maximum addition amount of titanium dioxide in foods such as fried products and puffed foods specified in GB 2760-1996 is 1%).

 

      According to the above regulations and practices, it is sufficient to show that titanium dioxide is a safe, non-toxic and harmless food additive.
