The cancer-causing chemical found in soy sauce, 3-MCPD, is also found in a wide range of UK-made foods, according to a survey the government published quietly last February. The finding of high levels of 3-MCPD in several brands of soy sauce hit national headlines in June. But figures from the earlier survey show that over twice as much 3-MCPD is getting into our food supply from UK-made food, including products like Mother's Pride bread, Sainsbury's beefburgers and McVitie's crackers, according to details published in today's Food Magazine.
