In Taiwan, 62,000 kg oats from the United States were rejected.
Reason: Authorities discovered glyphosate in it. The maximum allowable amount of glyphosate in food products in Taiwan 0.1 parts per million, in the EU there are 20 ppm, in the United States even 30 ppm.
After Taiwanese authorities have established glyphosate residues in oatmeal imported from the United States, at least 62,000 kg of the product from the trade have been taken. In addition, a fine in the amount of six million dollars threatens the US Company “Quaker Oats”.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto's controversial herbicide Roundup, which has been classified by the WHO as "probably carcinogenic". It is the most widely used herbicide of in history and is used in conjunction with Monsanto's "Roundup Ready"-GM crops used, taken in the laboratory against glyphosate resistant.
Apart from cancer, glyphosate is brought serious health risks associated with others in like birth defects, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer's. In contrast to the EU and the United States, strict limit values for glyphosate exist in Taiwan.
Basically, the cultivation of genetically modified plants in Taiwan is forbidden, also all products in the retail sector are identified, which include genetically modified ingredients. The maximum amount of glyphosate in food products in Taiwan 0.1 parts per million, in the EU there are 20 ppm, the amount of 200 times. In the United States, there are even 30 ppm, 300 times as much.
