The Americas – Chile: Ministry of Health publishes draft amendment on sodium ulphate levels in salt

The Ministry of Health published a draft amendment to the Food Sanitary Regulations (RSA in Spanish) on the levels of sodium sulfate above 1.5% established in Article 439 of the RSA. For this reason, the standards that Codex Alimentarius has developed in relation to sodium chloride and its natural contaminants were reviewed, where up to 3% of natural contaminants, including sodium sulfate, are accepted.
