No Nasty Stuff – ingredients justification.

Our justification for leaving the ‘No Nasty Stuff’ slogan on front of pack is as follows:

  • Sodium benzoate is a very common food preservative found in many juices and other types of food and our product contains only a very small amount.
  • The regulation on the use of E202 (Potassium Sorbate) and E211 (Sodium Benzoate) in Food Supplements in a Liquid Form (17.2), legislation EU 1129/2011 applicable as from 01.06.2013 states that the max amount of either additive used should be no higher than 2,000mg per litre.
  • There is only 200mg per litre of each in Glucojuice and we are well within the legal EU limits (only reaching 10% of the allowance) and below any level that could be considered as harmful or ‘nasty’. The product is clearly labelled with the ingredients to help people identify any substance that they may be allergic to.
