FSSAI invites to appropriate food categorization


Apr 12, 2024

On the 2nd of April, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) noticed that a substantial amount of companies were miscategorizing their products in particular dairy and cereal-based drinks being sold as health and energy drinks online. Because the term "health drink" is not categorized under the current legislation, the FSSAI simply advises companies to change their marketing names to be more in line with the nature of the product. Energy drinks are licensed under Food Category System (FCS) and (Carbonated and Non-carbonated water based flavoured drinks) and standardized under sub-regulation 2.10.6 (2) of Food Product Standards and Food Additives Regulations 2011 (Caffeinated Beverage). Thus any drink that does not fulfill the requirements presented in these regulations should cease to be miscategorized.
