The experiment was only a 6-person experiment, and the sample was small, so a safety factor of 5 was put in. So, 67/(5×10) = 1.34 micrograms/kg. Finally, remove the suffix 0.34 to get the maximum safe daily intake of 1.0 micrograms/kg. That is, each of us can be exposed to 1.0 micrograms of lysine per kilogram of body weight per day. In other words, a person weighing 60 kg can be exposed to 60 micrograms of lysine a day. Maximum residue tolerance (MRL) refers to the maximum concentration of ractopamine that can be tolerated in pork or beef meat or offal. The current CODEX standard is 10ppb (micrograms per kilogram) in meat, 40ppb in liver and 90ppb in kidney.
In the process of assessing health risks, two parts popular database of information are mainly combined, one is the concentration of pork gluten, and the other is the amount of pork ingested. The two are integrated to assess whether it exceeds the daily maximum safety. intake. For example, assuming that the maximum residue allowable level of pork is 10ppb, a person weighing 60 kilograms must eat more than 6 kilograms of pork per day to exceed the maximum safe daily intake. Taiwanese adults The average daily intake of pork is 80 grams, so it is only 1/75 of the excess of 6000 grams, which should be within the safe exposure range.
