In view of the increasing risk of obesity and diabetes in India, food regulator FSSAI is now going to tighten norms on packaged foods. It has prepared new guidelines in this regard, which will soon be mandatory. Following this, food companies will have to give information about salt, sugar and trans fats in bold on all food packages in the country.

Not only this, the FSSAI has also made it clear that the work of companies will not be successful by simply printing their information in bold. Rather, they will have to print it in large letters as well. The FSSAI has approved the change in labelling rules for this.

The country’s law will be enacted soon.

The food regulator FSSAI will first issue a draft notification in this regard. Suggestions from stakeholders will be sought later. Necessary suggestions will be included in it. After this, its notification will be issued and it will become the law of the country. In an official statement, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) said that it has decided to provide nutritional information on total sugar, salt and trans fat in bold and large font size on labels of packaged food items. has been approved.

Under the chairmanship of FSSAI President Apoorva Chandra, it was decided to approve the amendment to the 2020 rules regarding labelling of nutrition-related information.

Since the information on salt, sugar and fat is written in large, bold letters, customers will see it prominently on the package. This will enable them to make better product choices for their health and that of their children.
