EFSA concern over flavouringAugust 14th, 2015
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has raised concerns over the flavouring substance p-Mentha-1,8-dien-7-al, also called “Perilla aldehyde”, which is added to some drinks to produce a pungent citrus smell and a woody, spicy, citrus taste.
The substance has been proven to damage DNA in animals.
