Manufacturers could be placed under greater scrutiny by EU proposals to force drinks companies to reveal hidden chemicals in beer and wine.

The UK government is backing the proposals to reveal the possible addition of betaglucanase and propylene glycol alginate during manufacture, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The newspaper said that some brewers use a form of seaweed known as "Irish" moss to clear particles from beer, and add a product extracted from the swim bladders of fish to clear beer in the cask.

A spokesperson from the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) told just-drinks: "We would encourage brewers to list their ingredients. People are aware of the ingredients in the food they eat, and there should be corresponding transparency from drinks companies."
