Breadsticks are made from olive oil and garlic in the UK
- by admin
Olive oil, garlic and butter are used to make breadsticks, but the ingredients are not the same in every country, according to a new report.
It has emerged that the US, which used olive oil to make its famous pizza dough, was not the only one to have to add garlic to its breadsticks.
A report by the non-profit food and farming organisation, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, found that the UK, Italy and Sweden were the only countries to have no minimum standard for olive oil or garlic.
Olive oil used to be an essential ingredient in the dough, but it has been replaced by more expensive and higher-fat versions, according the report.
The report also found that there was a lack of awareness about the dangers of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is a by-product of the corn syrup industry.
The World Health Organization, which advises the World Health Assembly, has warned that HFCS is linked to kidney, liver and stomach disorders.
The UN has also criticised the EU for limiting the use of HFCM, which is also used in the making of margarine and other products.
There are concerns that HFAE, a byproduct of industrial food production, could also be harmful.
The organisation said the production of HFAEs can cause “serious health risks”, including liver disease, as well as kidney and liver cancer.
The findings were published on Tuesday by the Food, Agriculture and Horticulture Organization of UNEP.
The food and agriculture organisation also said that there is evidence that HFSAs are linked to higher rates of diabetes, asthma and heart disease.
The Food and Agricultural Organisation also said it is the responsibility of governments and companies to ensure that the food industry complies with international guidelines on the production and use of chemicals.
It said it will now be working with stakeholders in the food and food processing industry to ensure there are no further health risks.
The group, which includes a range of organisations, is campaigning to increase the availability of affordable, nutritious food for people in developing countries, including developing countries where people are still largely reliant on food aid from rich nations.
The research, by the food security group Oxfam UK, found there are now more than 1.4 billion people living in the world who need food aid, of which 2.5 billion require it.
The study, based on data from the UN’s Food and Nutrition Survey, was commissioned by Oxfam and published in the journal World Development.
