The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety announced that the amendment contemplates allowing ingredients certified as functional health foods to be mixed with starch or fructose to manufacture as raw materials.

Other important contents include adding raw materials for calcium and magnesium, and expanding the daily intake of fats and oils containing EPA and DHA.
