This was not the case in Germany yet. It is not surprising that the greatest food inventions came from here. Sodium Nitrite based curing brines, bone-in and boneless hams, ham presses and the cornerstone that our entire food safety system is built upon through the creation of the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus, all originated here.

A heritage that makes Prague in many respects the food capital of the world to this day. The impetus for developing food aistriacus legislation was in Vienna, as it was around the world, in response codfx the scourge of food adulteration.

This did not upset people. The big issues of the day, flowing out of the problem of akstriacus adulteration, were food hygiene, labelling, the testing of final products in the marketplace, inspection during food production and international borders as an effective barrier against importing of animal diseases and harmful foods.

Codex Alimentarius Austriacus

These matters did not all receive equal priority early on. At first the focus was on the use of international borders and import regulations as a way of safeguarding local populations against harmful foods and national herds against disease. Labelling was driven by consumer demand. Vienna was leading the world in food safety, but this does not mean that it was not an issue around the world.

Inthe German Food Law came into force.

A movement started to develop which called for trade regulations that would link trade and hygiene. In Europe and the United States, chemists joined the ranks of those asking for inspections. It happened as follows. This suggestion came about as follows. They were notably excluded from the work of the Scientific Commission. The producers and food traders pressured the government to complete the work on the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus to minimize these discrepancies.


These goals are still valid for the current version of the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus. This undoubtedly set Prague and Vienna along cities such as Washington DC and London as center stage to the creation of our modern day food safety system which would focus in the course of its work on matters such as the direct addition of nitrite in foods.

The Congress of Applied Chemists would become the cradle of the idea.

The first Congress of Applied Chemists was held in Brussels in It was an initiative of Dr. The conference in Brussels was divided into four sections. Successive conferences would take up this proposal zlimentarius hardly any change in its wording.

This congress was divided into twelve sections. One of the principal question before the Congress was the adoption of a uniform method of analysis of commercial products and raw materials. Joseph Ruau, French Minister of Agriculture and author of the act declared at the Paris meeting that honesty in business, hygiene, and international cooperation could be harmoniously linked.

He thought all this should become part of a Codex Alimentarius. This did not mean that border controls poorly organized in France at the time were not worthwhile: Ruau was not alone in holding this opinion.

While the ideals of an international Codex remained largely unfulfilled till after World War II and the creation of the World Health Organization, the development of the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus continued. Internationally, the problem of food-poisoning would attract more attention from international organizations following the Second World War.

The name given to the commission was after the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus where the idea of a global food standard started to become concrete. Vienna and Prague played a leading role in food research and developing a proper set of food standards. This highly developed thinking about food safety allowed for the direct addition of Sodium Nitrite to foods which allowed the creation of Praganda.


On 1 JulyDr. This commission set the rules on food which are used in national legislation and industry food safety audits. This is the theater where the leading thinking on food safety and pure foods play out.

We deal with this matter separately. The fact that Praganda was invented in Prague is not surprising if we understand that a very sophisticated culture and advanced technology existed in the Austro-Hungarian Empire around chemistry and food between and Like our Facebook page and see the next post.
