TFAs in Food Set at Zero

TFAs in Food Set at Zero

The permissible trans fat acids (TFAs) levels in certain food products have been reset at zero from the currently existing high level of 10%, said Rasoul Dinarvand, head of the Food and Drug Administration. “The Health Ministry’s focus in launching a new food fraud control program is to screen food products for contamination, and other possible harm,” he said, IRNA reported. He noted that policies regarding food safety pursued by the ministry through the FDA “will yield positive effects in the long-term, and cannot be expected to show an outcome in a short period of time.”
