InfoCons: Mustard with up to 6 E’s, only 10% mustard seeds, and up to 6.5 grams of salt

InfoCons carried out a study based on the mustard-type products found on the Romanian market.

100 products were the subject of the study. These products come from multiple manufacturers/distributors. As a result of the centralization of information, the following resulted:

In terms of the main ingredient (mustard grain/mustard seed or mustard flour) in the composition:

Mustard grains/mustard seeds in a proportion between 10 and 55% of the composition

Of these: – 0.01% have 55% mustard seeds; -0.01% have 50% mustard seeds; – 0.01% have 46% mustard seeds; -0.05% have 10% mustard seeds

Mustard flour in a proportion between 10 and 20% of the composition

Of these: -0.27% have 20% mustard flour; -0.01% have 10% mustard flour. In terms of mentioning the origin of the main ingredient: –37% do not mention the origin of the main ingredient. According to the data collected, 37% of the studied products do not mention the origin of the main ingredient, in accordance with regulation 1169/2011. As regards foodstuffs, the rules for indicating the country of origin or place of provenance of the primary ingredient must be implemented. In Article 26, paragraph 1, it is specified the establishment of general rules and requirements “regarding the indication of the country of origin or the place of provenance of food products, which apply without prejudice to the specific provisions of the Union”.

Also “Article 26 paragraph (2) letter (a) of Regulation (EU) no. 1169/2011 requires the indication of the country of origin or place of provenance if the lack of this information could mislead the consumer as to the true country of origin or true place of provenance of the final food product in question, especially if the information accompanying the food product or the label as a whole would otherwise suggest that the product has a different country of origin or place of provenance. The said article aims to prevent the indication of misleading food information implying a certain origin of a food product when, in fact, its real origin is different.”

In terms of food additives found in mustard:

88% of products contain Es (food additives)

The number of food additives ranges from 0 to 6:

1% of products have 6 Es in their composition;

9% of products have 4 E’s in their composition;

20% of the products have 3 E’s in their composition;

31% of products have 2 E’s in their composition;

27% of the products have 1 additive in their composition;

12% of products do not contain Es;
