Food additives are artificial or natural substances added to food to maintain the taste or enhance the taste, as well as for the needs of anti-corrosion and processing technology. At present, there are more than 2,000 kinds of food additives on the market. These food additives can be roughly divided into 17 categories, including acidity regulators, anticaking agents, defoamers, antioxidants, bleaching agents, leavening agents, coloring agents, color retention agents, enzyme preparations, flavor enhancers, and nutritional fortification agents, preservatives, sweeteners, thickeners, fragrances, solvents. The main functions of food additives are to prevent food spoilage and deterioration, extend the shelf life of food, and prevent food poisoning caused by microbial contamination; improve the sensory quality of food to meet people's different needs; improve the nutritional value of food and prevent malnutrition And nutritional deficiencies, promote nutritional balance, and improve people's health; the use of defoamers, filter aids, stabilizing and coagulants in food processing can be beneficial to food processing operations, etc.; in addition, it can also increase food varieties and meet other special needs.
Food additives are not illegal additives. With the development of the food industry, food additives have also developed rapidly. Many food additives have been greatly improved in terms of purity and efficacy, such as enzyme preparations. However, with the increase in the use of food additives, some illegal acts have been accompanied. For example, illegal businesses use non-edible substances to produce compound food additives, use food additives with irregular labels and unknown sources, and abuse food additives such as excessive quantities. In order to prevent these illegal activities, food additives should be monitored in a timely manner. As a convenient and unrestricted detection method, ELISA is widely used in the detection of food additives.
