FSSAI gives green signal to 19 rapid analytical food testing kits

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India is going to launch testing kits for food analysis. FSSAI approves around 19 rapid analytical food testing kits with an aim to get quick validated results for the tests.

“These kits would come handy for common commodities such as milk and edible oil, which are consumed by the entire country, and which are also the most vulnerable to adulteration,” said an official with FSSAI.

The autonomous body for food safety has also approved guidelines for the rapid testing kits, equipment, and methods.

Currently, the approval is at a provisional stage. However, soon the kits will be handed to the state governments which will then be given to their respective food safety officers, after conducting pilot testing of the kits.

United Nations has chosen June 7th to celebrate International Food Safety Day to spread awareness on food safety and nutrition. To mark the occasion of the firstWorld Food Safety Day, which will be celebrated henceforth on this day every year,FSSAI will host a programme at its headquarters.On the occasion, the organization will unveil the first and only statue of Mahatma Gandhi on a bicycle, which served as the motivation behind the all-India relay cyclothon, called as Swasth Bharat Yatra. The cyclothon commenced on October 16, 2018, and ended on January 29, 2019.

Various stakeholders areparticipating in the ceremony to spread the message of safe food habits. Also, many of them will be felicitated to honor their spirit and tireless efforts in fighting against food-safety hazards and adulteration.
