Tin Con­tent

As per FSS Reg­u­la­tions, in canned ras­gulla the max­i­mum per­mis­si­ble level of tin is 250 mg/kg by weight. Tin is used prin­ci­pally in the pro­duc­tion of coat­ings used in the food in­dus­try. Food, par­tic­u­larly canned food, there­fore rep­re­sents the ma­jor route of hu­man ex­po­sure to tin. The main ad­verse ef­fect on hu­mans of ex­ces­sive lev­els of tin in canned bev­er­ages or canned foods is acute gas­tric ir­ri­ta­tion. Ex­ces­sive in­take of tin can cause vom­it­ing, di­ar­rhoea, fa­tigue, and headache.
