Attended the ‘First Health Ministers Roundtable on Food Safety & Nutrition’ in New Delhi. New food law and its effective implementation has potential to ensure citizens eat safe and eat right. If they do so, we can prevent many diet related illnesses. FSSAI has created a completely new ecosystem for Food Safety Training and Certification (FoSTaC). I am happy to note that in a very short period of time, over 10,000 people have been trained and 100 training partners have been empanelled. In order to address micronutrient deficiencies (also referred to as hidden hunger), FSSAI has formulated standards for fortifying edible oil and milk with Vitamin A and D, rice and wheat with iron, folic acid and vitamin B12 and salt with iron (in addition to iodine). 09/01/2018
