Formaldehyde is a toxic material that can kill bacteria and viruses as well as damage human cells. Food manufacturers sometimes add Formaldehyde to foods such as fish, meats, milk, noodles meats, etc to extend its shelf-life. Many ordinary foods naturally contain small amounts of Formaldehyde however, excess Formaldehyde has been reported in many foods.
Although adding formaldehyde to foods is forbidden in many countries, some manufacturers still add it in particular if the food is expected to stay unrefrigerated for a while. Consumers of foods need to know if they contain excessive and dangerous amounts of formaldehyde. Inspectors of food need to know if formaldehyde was added purposely and illegally to the food.
Excess exposure to formaldehyde is known to increase the possibilty of cancer and also cause breathing difficulties. Women in the early stages of pregnancy are also highly sucectible to exposure to Formaldehyde, as it is suspected to cause birth defects and other complications with early child development.
Our formaldehyde detectors allow for rapid, easy detection of formaldehyde in food and drink (PATENT PENDING).
