Does the child need to worry about drinking this “problem milk”?

Experts generally believe that parents should not be too anxious about whether milk containing propylene glycol will harm children’s health.

The safe dosage standard of propylene glycol formulated by the International Joint Expert Group on Food Additives (JECFA) is: the intake per kilogram of body weight per day does not exceed 25 mg.

According to expert analysis, according to the propylene glycol content (0.32 g/kg) detected in Mai Qier pure milk:

A 60kg person needs to drink 4.7kg a day to “exceed the standard”.

A child weighing 30 kilograms drinks 2.3 kilograms a day, which is still within the “safe range”.

I have this milk at home.

Can it be given to children?

Experts said that although it takes a certain amount of propylene glycol-containing Maiquor milk to exceed the standard, it is still a “substandard product”.

As a supplier of analytical science and technology solutions, Welch Materials has sorted out experimental analysis plans for propylene glycol detection, providing a helping hand for experimental workers who are currently conducting detection work.
