Seafood Hazards #1- Chemical Harm from Animal Species

What are hazard factors to Seafood/ Foods?

In Food Hazards, we have 3 factors. the physical, the chemical, and the biological hazards.

In this article, we will talk about the chemical harm coming from food inputs.

Where are chemical hazards coming from?

Chemical hazards in Food include water, food contact materials, cleaning agents, pest control substances, contaminants (environmental, agricultural, and process e.g. acrylamide), pesticides, biocides, and food additives.

They are from:

  • Exist or formed naturally from the species
  • From the animals’ s living environment
  • Added with purpose
  1. Exist or formed naturally from the species

Several chemicals poisoning human beings and could in some raw materials.

  • Histamine:
    ISO 22000 Resource Center: Histamine Fish Poisoning

 

There is an amino acid in some red meat fish like tuna with a high level called Histidine. When the fish’s death comes, some bacteria can change Histidin into Histamin which causes allergy or food poison to consumers.

  • Hazardous chemicals like PSP (causing paralyzed phantom), DSP (causing diarrhea), ASP (causing amnestic disorder) in poisoning alga which clams normally eat. If you eat one of these clams, you will be poisoned.

Warning of Algal Toxin Events to support aquaculture

  • CFP is also a hazard much in the alga, living near the corals, which is eaten by fishes like snappers or groupers.

  • Tetrodotoxin in pufferfish or blue-ringed octopus is a chemical extremely dangerous to human life, even when the animal is still alive.

How to control:

  • Controlling and Managing the temperature, time from catching stage till manufacturing. In particular to those raw materials that are produced for edible raw food such as bigeye tuna and yellowfin tuna, these objects normally contain Histamin.
  • Discarding pufferfish and blue-ringed octopus in the raw material.

Please stay safe and be aware of your sourcing.

We’ll see you in part 2 of this series: Seafood Chemical Hazards#2- From the animals’ s living environment

Good Health & Well Being
The more modernized we get in science and technology, the more we have to care about our health which is the most important element to have better living standards. We pursue a healthy life and promote well-being from countries to countries as we strive to fight communicable diseases, reduce illness and deaths from hazardous chemical and pollution.

Responsible Consumption & Productions
We look for better future in food supply chain for a sustainable consumption and production patterns. This means strive to ensure good use of resources, improving efficiency from the very beginning of food manufacturing. On the other hand, we run after sustainable management and use of framework to find good source that has responsible management of chemical and waste substances that negatively may impact on people’s health and environment.

Zero Hunger
We believe in a world that we all are able to have universal access to safe and nutritious food no matter where we are. We attemp to:
  • Address trade restriction and distortion in the world agricultural markets
  • Enhance & Sustain the productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers
  • Ensure stable food commodity markets and timely access to information

Life Below Water
We are aware of the environment at the moment so in order to have better food supply chain, we have to nurture and protect the environment we exploit with some contribution:
  • Together with the factory, we consult, research and enhance fish farm against pollution
  • Implement science-based management plans in order to restore fish sticks in the shortest feasible time.
  • Support small scale fishers who contribute to nutrition, food security, sustainable livelihoods

Clean Water And Sanitation
In food supply chain, we reach for:
  • Availability and sustainable management of water
  • Safe and affordable water, water quality improvement and safe use for food production
  • Ability to access to sanitation and food hygiene
