Anheuser Busch Inbev SA - German beer purity in question after environment group finds weed-killer traces - Reuters
Thursday, 25 Feb 2016 04:14am EST 

Anheuser Busch Inbev SA:A German environmental group said on Thursday it has found traces of the widely used weed-killer ingredient glyphosate in Germany's 14 most popular beers, a potential blow to the country's reputation for "pure" brewing - RTRS.Industry and government immediately sought to play down the report from the Munich Environmental Institute.The Brauer-Bund beer association said the findings, which were based on a small number of samples, were not credible. Germany's Federal Institute for Risk assessment said the levels did not pose a risk to consumers' health.Under the "Reinheitsgebot", or German purity law - one of the world's oldest food safety laws and celebrating its 500th anniversary this year - brewers have to produce beer using only malt, hops, yeast and water.Brauer-Bund said there were government controls in place in breweries to ensure that no harmful substances made their way into the production process.Its own monitoring system for malt has never detected levels of glyphosate that were above the permitted maximum limits, it added.Hasseroeder, a beer brewed in Saxony-Anhalt in eastern Germany and owned by Anheuser Busch Inbev ABI.BR, contained the highest trace of glyphosate at 29.74 micrograms per litre, the institute said.The smallest amount, 0.46 micrograms per litre, was found in Augustiner, made in Munich.  Full Article
