New cadmium limits in foodstuffs come into effect from 1 January 2015

The EU Commission has established revisions of cadmium limits in foodstuffs as set out in the Commission Regulation 488/2014 amending the Commission Regulation 1881/2006.

This means that the maximum level of cadmium allowed will be as shown in the table below.

Jost Chemical is specialized in producing mineral salts with very low content of metallic contaminants including cadmium. Although this update of the EC regulation still concerns maximum levels in the finished product, the choice of a Jost Chemical’s mineral salt is the guarantee to use an ultra-pure raw material which will pull downward the Cd level of your finished product.
