FSSAI notifies about non-iodised common salt sale prohibition


16th July 2019

The FSSAI has directed all the FBOs (food business operators) through notification that the sale of non-iodised salt is prohibited and common salt without iodine will no longer be available.

The regulations were gazette notified by the food regulator and called as the Food Safety and Standards (Prohibition and Restriction on sales) Second Amendment Regulations, 2019. The required amendments will be added to the earlier regulations.

The FSSAI also said that the iodisation of common salt for direct human consumption is mandatory and was already launched under the National Iodine Deficiency Disorders Control Programmed (NIDDCP) during 1992.

While the provision for iodisation of the common salt is already mentioned in the Food Safety and Standards (Prohibition and Restriction on sales) Regulations, 2011, this recent revision will help to curb the sale of non-iodised salt for retail purpose only.

The FSSAI clarified that the notification is only for common salt or white salt and not for salt like rock salt and black salt.
