Draft Thai Industrial Standard for Pineapple in Hermetically Sealed Containers (TIS 51-25XX(20XX). Language(s): Thai. Number of pages: 13

The Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) has proposed to withdraw TIS 51-2530(1987): Canned Pineapple, and replace it with TIS 51-25XX(20XX): Pineapple in Hermetically Sealed Containers as a mandatory standard.

This standard covers only peeled pineapple, cored and uncored, which has been stored in a completely airtight container and has been passed through the process of eliminating or deterring the growth of microorganism by means of heat.

It also specifies scope, definition, specifications, requirements, food additives, contaminants, hygiene, packaging, marking and labelling, sampling and criteria for conformity, and analysis.

The food safety section has been mentioned in articles 5 and 6 of the draft regulation as follows:

-         Sets out the maximum level for food additives including flavouring, acidity regulator (citric acid and L-ascorbic acid) and sucralose not more than 400 mg/kg;

-         Sets out the maximum levels for certain contaminants including: Tin (only can be made from metal) not more than 250 mg/kg, Lead not more than 1 mg/kg. This standard has notified as TBT Notification G/TBT/N/THA/554 dated 2 September 2019.
