Standards of Vitamin and Mineral Premix for FRK

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has issued a direction operationalising the Standards of Vitamin and Mineral Premix for Fortified Rice Kernels (FRK). These standards are contained in the draft Food Safety and Standards (Food Product Standards and Food Additives) Amendment Regulations.

The FSSAI observes that the finalisation of the draft amendment regulations is likely to take more time, hence in the interim, it has decided to operationalise the standards.

The intent behind this interim operationalisation is to strengthen national-level fortification programme and its implementation. Hence, the standards relating to limits of micro nutrients in the vitamin and mineral pre-mix in FRK have been operationalised.

Therefore, these standards will stand operationalised from 17th November, 2023.
