Revision of permissible levels of aflatoxins in food supplements

Sri Lanka

Nov 20, 2023

The Cabinet of Ministers has approved a proposal to revise the permissible Aflatoxin levels for food supplement programs, including Thriposha for children. 

Indeed, due to the stringent permissible limits for total Aflatoxins prescribed in the existing regulations under the Food Act No. 26 of 1980, the Government said it has become difficult to procure maize for the production of Thriphosa.

Therefore, the Cabinet has approved the proposal presented by the Minister of Health to apply the limit of level 5 ppb for type B1 and level 10 ppb of total Aflatoxin in internationally recognized food supplements.
