FSSAI says Natural food has to be natural

The move is aimed at making companies more accountable for their health and nutritional claims to protect consumer interest.

According to the new regulations of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) that will be notified soon, food companies cannot use words such as ‘natural’, ‘fresh’, ‘original’, ‘traditional’, ‘pure’, ‘aunthentic’, ‘genuine’ and ‘real’ on the labels unless the product is not processed in any manner except washed, peeled, chilled and trimmed or put through other processing which could alter its basic characteristics.

The move is aimed at making companies more accountable for their health and nutritional claims to protect consumer interest.

The food regulator further stated that the companies using terms which could mean ‘natural’, ‘fresh’, ‘original’, ‘traditional’, ‘pure’, ‘authentic’, ‘genuine’ and ‘real’ as their brand name or trade mark will have to give a clear disclaimer stating “this is only a brand name or trade mark and does not represent its true nature”.

A spokesperson for HUL said, "We are fully supportive of FSSAI’s efforts to improve nutritional standards in India. Along with the rest of the F&B industry, we are engaging with them to have robust regulations in place."
