    Thailand : Most fish sauces have 'unsafe' levels of preservatives

    Most fish sauces have 'unsafe' levels of preservatives
    May 9, 2013

    Most fish sauces and many mixed fish sauces on store shelves across the country contain levels of preservatives that fail to meet safety standards, according to the results of a study released Thursday.

    The Department of Medical Sciences (DMS) surveyed the quality of fish sauces and mixed fish sauces sold in fresh markets and department stores nationwide.

    It collected 471 samples produced by 118 manufacturers in February and March.

    Of the samples, 242 were fish sauces priced at Bt10-Bt45, and 229 were mixed fish sauces costing Bt6-Bt18.

    The survey found that only 62.8 per cent of fish sauces and 37.1 per cent of mixed fish sauces met safety standards.

    The DMS should name the fish sauces having too much preservative. Give people a chance to avoid them.

    It would be nice if The Nation provided a link to the survey. Without the link and some translation of it the "Breaking News" is not really news at all.

    Hope the Oyster sauce with the woman and boy in a rowing boat is okay (From HK?)...best tasting one I've ever come across.



    Oyster sauce was a subject for health issues a decade or so ago (not the one above. which is A1+++ IMO)

    I think the report may be more about fermented fish though....
