Sale of Chinese salt Ajinomoto banned in Pakistan

Sale of Chinese salt Ajinomoto banned in Pakistan”

Taking notice of increasing amount of arsenic in drinking water and sale of substandard packed milk last week, the honourable CJP in yet another important order on Saturday banned the sale and import of Chinese salt, popularly known as Ajinomoto, describing it as a serious health hazard.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar said the sale of the salt can not be allowed. The three member bench observed that the Prime Minister of Pakistan should also take up the issue in the cabinet.

In January, the food authority of Punjab had banned the salt after its scientific panel conducted laboratory tests on the commodity and found it hazardous to health. It is present usually in all kinds of processed food which includes-Potato chips, cold cuts, packaged cookies, tinned soups, cake frosting, salad dressings, packet noodles and the scrumptious Chinese food served at restaurants-making the food tastier and forcing us to consume more. This is the reason that this is termed as magic ingredient that food outlets love to use as a flavour enhancer in their cuisines to attract more customers.

The apex court was told that the country's three provinces including eastern Punjab, northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and southern Sindh have already banned the condiment and are taking measures against its selling.

The court was also informed that a debate has been pending in the Cabinet over the import and export of the Chinese Salt.
