、蒸馏水、矿物质水、苏打水等摆满货架，让人眼花缭乱。 Citizens may encounter such a situation when they go to the supermarket to buy water. Mineral water , distilled water, mineral water, soda water and so on are full of shelves, which is dazzling. 和其他饮用水两类。 The National Food Safety Standard for Drinking Water (GB19298-2014), which was implemented last May, stipulates that packaged drinking water on the market can only be divided into drinking pure water and other drinking water. Among them, a "buffer period" is set for the labeling mark of packaged drinking water, and the labeling mark is required to be fully implemented from January 1, 2016. This situation will change from this month.
However, on January 1st, in the drinking water area of a supermarket in the Eastern District, the reporter saw more than 10 types of drinking water of various brands, including natural mineral water and pure drinking water. Uncle Chen, who is buying water, said that there are too many varieties of drinking water now, and he doesn't know how to choose: "Although there are all kinds of water, I think these so-called effects are just publicity."
In another supermarket in the city, the reporter saw that some major branded bottled waters have begun to be sold in new packages. For example, in addition to the rename of a brand of mineral water, the description of "added mineral food additives" has been added. . The salesperson introduced: "There are other brands that sell mineral water, but they may become less and less. The label brands are slowly changing. After the label is changed, it meets the new national standard and the price is the same." "Mineral water "Is natural drinking water with mineral elements, and the minerals contained in" mineral water "are artificial food additives, but the name is easily confused with mineral water, so it is banned.
According to the requirements, in addition to the national standards for natural mineral water, all other packaged drinking water have implemented the new national standard, which is divided into two categories: purified water and other drinking water, including "distilled water", "activated water" and "small molecules" "Milk water", "functional water", "energy water", etc. will be banned from appearing on the outer packaging label of the packaging water. Products such as soda must be marked with "additional food additives" and other similar descriptions around the product name. Mr. Li, a citizen, believes that such a unified classification helps consumers identify products and is not affected by advertising. "In fact, everyone knows that there is no obvious difference between water and merchants. So many famous people will mislead consumers to a certain extent."
