Question raised in Lok Sabha on Potassium Bromate in Breads, 22/07/2016. The Government is aware of the study by the Centre for Science and Environment. Potassium bromate was earlier permitted to be used as an additive for manufacturing bread and other bakery products under the erstwhile Prevention of Food Adulteration Act, 1954.

The CSE has urged the government to ban the use of toxic chemicals in bakery products

Use of chemical food additives is a common practice in packaged and processed foods. Not all of them are safe. One such additive is potassium bromate (KBrO3) which, until over two decades ago, was routinely used in most parts of the world to treat flour for bread and bakery products. KBrO3 helped give the product a high rise and uniform finish.

Bread industry uses potassium bromate and potassium iodate, substances that are banned in many countries, but not in India; Indian regulators must act immediately and ban them CSE’s new study tests bread sold in Delhi. Finds residues of potassium bromate/iodate in commonly consumed varieties.

One of urban India’s staple food products – the bread that we buy off the shelves every day – could be laced with toxic chemicals which are serious health hazards, finds a new study done in Delhi by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE). The study, conducted by CSE’s Pollution Monitoring Laboratory (PML), says Indian bread manufacturers use potassium bromate and potassium iodate for treating flour while making bread.

Delhi is leading the major metropolises of India in controlling air pollution, a study by the think-tank Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) suggests.

Three decades after the Bhopal gas lead killed a few thousand people overnight, the struggle continues for its survivors. A number of issues concerning the survivors of the disaster, termed the biggest industrial accident in history, seemed close to resolution this year, but none was resolved.
