FSSAI to check salt, fat and sugar content in food products

The panel would also advise the FSSAI on prescriptions of regulations for display of fat, sugar and salt on food products sold and served in eating joints or catering facilities, besides labelling requirements for packaged food.

RI Bureau

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) joins hand with expert panel comprising of dieticians and doctors from AIIMS to regulate salt, fat and sugar contents served at eating joints and food products.

The food safety has teamed up with 11 experts’ panellists soon after the Delhi High Court asked FSSAI to issue guidelines in this regard.

Maintaining that the adverse effects of junk food on the health of consumers have been a matter of serious concern, the FSSAI’s latest order said, “While the said guidelines are being issued separately, it has been observed that the subject needs deeper examination qua all foods. It has, therefore, been decided to constitute an expert group on salt, sugar and fat in food products in India.”

The panel would also advise the FSSAI on prescriptions of regulations for display of fat, sugar and salt on food products sold and served in eating joints or catering facilities, besides labelling requirements for packaged food.

The panel would advise the regulator about the health risks associated with high intake of fat, sugar and salt.
