Content of arsenic, mercury and ticks to be limited in Russian beer

The content of toxic substances – lead, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, radioactive nuclides, caesium, pesticides and ergot – must be restricted in the Russian beer. Parasites of bread reserves – insects and ticks – must not appear in the production process. Beer must be made without the use of ethyl alcohol. Labels on the end product must provide full and true information for customers. These are a few of the new technical regulations on beer; the document was submitted to the Russian parliament, the State Duma, on Tuesday, The Vremya Novostei newspaper wrote.

The new bill is supposed to unite and systematize all existent requirements to brewing products. The new regulations will be introduced to bring Russian market regulation standards closer to international principles.

The term ‘brewing products’ includes beer and convenience foods used for the production of beer, including brewer’s malt, the wort concentrate and the malt extract.

The new regulations mention the special kind of beer made with the use of sugar-containing products, fruit, berries and the products of their processing, including flavor and aroma additives. The content of beer in special beer must not be lower than 80 percent.

The content of beer in soft drinks that are made on the base of beer – beer cocktails - must have not less than 40 percent.
