FSSAI notifies limits of melamine in milk, dairy products

12,January, 2016
 

New Delhi, January 11:
To check adulteration in milk and milk products, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India has notified the maximum permissible levels of the contaminant — melamine — in dairy products. The food safety authority had, in July, proposed the maximum prescribed limits and had invited public comments, which have now been notified.
According to the notification, FSSAI has imposed a permissible limit of 1 mg of melamine in every kg of powdered infant formula, 0.15 mg a kg in liquid infant formula and 2.5 mg a kg in other foods.
This has been introduced in the Food Safety and Standards (Contaminants, Toxins & Residues) Amendments Regulations 2015.
