Bromine is a naturally occurring element which is commonly found in sea water and bromide salt. Brominated vegetable oil is a composite combination of plant-derived triglycerides formed when reacted to contain atoms of the component bromine attached to the molecule. The brominated vegetable oil is primarily used for emulsifying citrus flavored soft drinks by preventing from splitting during distribution. The ingredient is mainly used in the soft drink industry.

The major players such as The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo use brominated vegetable oil in the aerated drinks. Brominated vegetable oil is used in most of the countries across the globe. However, these are banned in few of the countries such as European countries, India, and Japan, amongst others. Under the public pressure, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo agreed to remove the brominated vegetable oil from all the beverages manufactured by the companies.

The citrus flavors used in the drinks are orange, lemon, lime, and grapefruit which are oily. When these flavors are added in a beverage, they do not mix evenly in the drink and remain at the top of the drink. These are not dispersed properly. The brominated vegetable oil acts as an emulsifier, which helps the citrus flavor to mix well in the soft drink. The beverages which contain brominated vegetable oil are hazy in appearance.

Global Brominated Vegetable Oil Market: Drivers and Restraints

U.S. FDA has limited the usage of brominated vegetable oil limit at 15 pmm in finished beverages. However, most of the countries in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia have banned the usage in beverages. In U.S the element is used in most of the beverages. The oil is found in almost 10% of the soda products available in the country and majorly in the beverages with citrus flavor. The global brominated vegetable oil market is anticipated to grow at a single-digit growth rate.

However, an excessive consumption of brominated vegetable oil is not safe to be used as food additive. The excessive usage of brominated vegetable oil has led to memory loss, tremors, fatigue, loss of muscles coordination, ptosis of right eyelid, and headaches. The chemical companies are using the patented compound as the flame retardant, and this has led to banning in usage in food in Europe and Japan.
