Uzbekistan to examine Afghan soda banned in Kyrgyzstan 

In Uzbekistan, the carbonated pomegranate drink Royal from Afghanistan will be re-tested, the Sanitary and Epidemiological Committee reports. In Kyrgyzstan, it was banned due to the presence of a dye that can have a negative impact on children's health.

The Committee for Sanitary and Epidemiological Welfare reported that the soda had previously been tested. No toxic or harmful substances to human health were found in its composition. There have also been no complaints from the population about the product to date. 

Starting from July 3, Kyrgyzstan began to confiscate the pomegranate drink "Golden Life" (in Uzbekistan it is sold under the brand name Royal). According to, the soda contained the dye azorubin E 122, which can have a negative impact on the activity and attention of children.
