Prepackaged Food Grade Salt Products; Prepackaged and prepared foods (ICS 67.230)
Revised Draft Article 2 of the Regulations on Fluorine Labeling for Prepackaged Food Grade Salt Products (1 page(s), in English; 1 page(s), in Chinese)
The Ministry of Health and Welfare is proposing amendment to the labelling of prepackaged food grade salt products in response to the public health policy for reducing dental caries rate of school children. Currently potassium fluoride salt or sodium fluoride salt is only allowed to be used at home and the policy was recently revised to allow it to be used in school meals. It is therefore necessary to amend the labelling requirement to keep consumers informed of the changes.
