alert! This kind of bowl may cause teratogenicity, do not use it if there are pregnant women and children at home


Nowadays, plastic products can be seen everywhere, and it is already very difficult to achieve "zero plastic". Especially plastic tableware, which is light and resistant to falling, is the choice of many parents.

However, from time to time on the Internet, news about plastic products containing "plasticizers" and causing children "precocious puberty" has made parents very anxious. Can plastic tableware be used? If they can't be used, why are they allowed to be produced, isn't there relevant regulation?

1. Can plastic tableware be used?

As long as children use things, it is not too much to be overly careful, especially imported items such as tableware. You must know that as long as there is a problem, the health damage to the baby will be fatal.

There was a news report that a 1-year-old girl was suffering from lymphocytic leukemia. The doctor said that this disease may be caused by excessive methanol in the imitation porcelain bowl that the child used to eat.

So is there such a possibility? Of course there is. Because some inferior imitation porcelain plastic bowls are made of low-cost materials such as urea and formaldehyde. When these substances are heated to about 100°C, they will be decomposed. That is to say, using this kind of bowl to hold a bowl of boiling hot rice and hot soup will release formaldehyde.

If you use this kind of bowl frequently, it will greatly increase the possibility of your baby getting cancer or leukemia. Hunan Satellite TV's truth-seeking program team once conducted an experiment. They bought two kinds of imitation porcelain bowls with very different prices, poured 290-degree high-temperature oil into the two bowls, and then tested them with a formaldehyde detector. The result, the price The relatively high imitation porcelain bowl has a formaldehyde emission of 0.29, and the relatively low price imitation porcelain bowl has a formaldehyde emission of 1.5, and the machine will directly alarm...

However, according to national standards, the concentration of formaldehyde in indoor air should be less than or equal to 0.1 mg per cubic meter. That is to say, even if the imitation porcelain bowl with high price encounters high temperature, the formaldehyde release will exceed the standard. There is also a polycarbonate (PC) plastic product, which is the one with 7 written in the triangle mark, which is polymerized from bisphenol A (BPA) and diphenyl carbonate or carbonyl chloride.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical product that is mainly used to prevent bacterial growth and rust. It is widely used in plastic tableware and food packaging. Of course, it also widely appears in plastic products that children are easy to touch, such as water cups , tableware, etc. This bisphenol A (BPA) has the effect of simulating the hormone estrogen, which will destroy the endocrine system of children, cause precocious puberty, disrupt the metabolic process of the human body, cause obesity in children, and even cause cancer and teratogenicity.

Polycarbonate (PC) plastic products will release this kind of bisphenol A (BPA) at a higher temperature. The longer the heating time, the more the release, and the more bisphenol A will migrate to the food. The more you absorb. However, at present, baby bottles made of PC materials have been banned at home and abroad, and parents don't have to worry too much about buying such products.

In addition, the current children's plastic products are colorful and cute. This is because manufacturers have added many new additives in the production process, such as adding metal substances such as lead to make the colors colorful; adding formamide and phthalo Plasticizers such as esters can improve the toughness of plastics. None of these additives are fused with the plastic. When the plastic is heated or the plastic product ages, they will be released from the plastic. Long-term use will cause harm to the health of children.

Therefore, using plastic products for children may indeed cause health hazards to children, especially under high temperature conditions, but this does not mean that all plastic products cannot be used by children.

Second, the plastic tableware used by children must look for these two standards

For children, the relatively safe material is polypropylene (PP) plastic products. It is a food-grade safe container material that meets national standards. It is suitable for microwave ovens and can withstand high temperatures of 100°C without deformation and will not release toxic substances. substance. Identifying it is simple, just look at the plastic triangle marked as the number 5. However, it is relatively easy to age. If traces appear during use, remember to replace it in time.

Jiatianfu tableware, also known as environmentally friendly oyster shell tableware, is a new material made of oyster shell powder + PP, plus polymer materials. This new type of resin is waterproof, strong, heat-resistant, and non-flammable. It is conducive to reducing the phenomenon of cutting down trees to make paper and saving oil resources, and is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Because of its lightness, beauty, high gloss (110°), high temperature resistance (170°C), high strength (drop resistance), it can be used in microwave ovens and disinfection cabinets, and it will not burst at high temperatures; it has bright luster, is easy to color, slow heat conduction, and does not burn hands , Smooth edges, fine touch, easy to clean, the product has passed the GB4806.7-2016 test; the product has passed the SGS standard; the product has passed the US FDA and EU food container certification. It is used in the catering industry and children's catering industry.

Third, the use of children's plastic tableware in life and these things should also be paid attention to

1. When children's tableware is available in materials such as ceramics, stainless steel, and environmentally friendly oyster shell tableware, try not to choose plastic materials.

2. Try to buy qualified children's plastic tableware in regular stores, and remember to check whether the safety signs are complete when purchasing. At the same time, according to personal needs, choose the food or container that needs to be heated, and know the temperature range of the material used, whether there is deformation, color difference, odor, whether the surface is faded, etc.

3. Try not to hold high-temperature food in plastic tableware, such as boiling water, hot soup, etc.

4. Do not sterilize plastic tableware by boiling too frequently, do not use corrosive detergent to clean tableware, and do not use dry silk balls and other sharp objects to scrub these plastic products, because of high heat, high corrosion, plastic scratches All will accelerate the release of chemicals in plastic products.

5. If you often use baby bottles or tableware, the correct way to do it after meals is to wash them in time and dry them as soon as possible.
