Coodex change for Rice
COODEX committee held the committee on food additives and polluting matter in Rotterdam, the Netherlands from 22nd through 26th in March, and decided to change the initial proposal on cadmium content to permit in polished rice of 0.2 ppm to 0.4 ppm and to refer the revised proposal to the general meeting of COODEX that is due to hold in June. The change is due to the usefulness of the data and the revised standard proposal submitted by Japan last December, and it became acceptable for rice production area in Japan where marketing of rice containing over 0.2 ppm is estimated to be over 3 percent. Although COODEX committee will decide the standard finally after next year, with the revision of Food Sanitation Law in Japan, the standard in Japan is strongly expected to be 0.4 ppm(the current standard is 1 ppm). Also, on soybeans, the committee excluded considering its standard because absorption of cadmium into human body is contributed little, and so, it became the best result for domestic soybean production area where much cadmium is estimated to contain than any other countries.
