1. Reinheitsgebot, also known as the ‘purity law’, is said to be the oldest, still-enforced food regulation in the world. It was ordered by Duke Wilhelm IV of Bavaria in the year 1516. The Purity law required that “nothing other than barley, hops, and water” be used to produce beer. Yeast is the fourth ingredient that is allowed, but it’s not listed in the original law because yeast’s role in the fermentation process had not yet been discovered at the time that it was written. The German purity law was initially implemented in Bavaria but was gradually adopted by other German states. Since 1906, the purity law governs beer brewing in all of Germany. A variety of other beer regulations also existed in Germany during the Middle Ages, such as Nuremberg in 1293 and Erfurt in 1351, but only Reinheitsgebot has been enforced until today.
