Detail Info About Peroxide

Recently, there have been media reports regarding the use of industrial grade hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching agent in the processing of shark fins and pistachio nuts.

Properties of Hydrogen Peroxide

  1. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a strong oxidising agent that is commonly used in industry and in the medical field.
  2. The anhydrous form of the chemical is a colourless, bitter-tasting liquid with an ozone-like odour.
  3. It is unstable and decomposed upon standing, agitation, and exposure to light or heating, producing water and oxygen.

Use of Hydrogen Peroxide in Food Processing

  1. Because of its strong oxidising property, hydrogen peroxide is used as a bleaching agent in some foods such as wheat flour, edible oil, egg white etc. in countries like the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
  2. It is also allowed to be used as an antimicrobial agent in food, e.g. milk, and as a sterilizing agent for food packaging materials.
  3. In processing food, the dosage of hydrogen peroxide should be limited to the amount sufficient for the purpose.
  4. In the Mainland, hydrogen peroxide is included in the list of food processing aid. In general, processing aids used in food should be removed from the final products.

Safety of Hydrogen Peroxide

  1. The Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) had evaluated the safety of hydrogen peroxide in 1965, 1973 and 1980 respectively. JECFA considered that ingestion of small amount of hydrogen peroxide would produce no toxicological effects due to rapid decomposition of the chemical by the enzyme catalase of the intestinal cells.
  2. Oral ingestion of 3% hydrogen peroxide solutions (household strength) generally does not result in severe toxicity but may result in vomiting, mild irritation to mucosa and burns in the mouth, throat, oesophagus and stomach. Ingestion of higher concentration, e.g. >10%, can result in more dangerous sequelae such as burns to mucus membranes and gut mucosa.
  3. Regarding the carcinogenicity of hydrogen peroxide, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) considered that there was inadequate evidence for carcinogenicity in human.
  4. Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and would decompose in contact with food and after cooking.
