How safe is your food? Know about FSSAI Draft Rules

You may not have heard of FSSAI – Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, but they affect the food you eat. FSSAI has published a draft rule on genetically modified foods relating to the manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import of any food or food ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The draft also proposes foods that contain precisely genetically engineered ingredients 1%+ labeled as “GMOs/includes ingredients derived from GMOs.” Food safety activists and environmental experts believe this is not okay and are concerned about the long-term and health effects. You can read the draft rule yourself and send your comments to FSSAI by January 15, 2022.
