The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry/General Directorate of Food and Control published Turkish Food Codex Communiqué on Pasta. This Communiqué covers product definitions, compositions criteria and labelling requirements of Pasta. In accordance with the national legislation, this draft communiqué will enter into force on the date of publication and replace the current communiqué. Turkish Food Codex Pasta Communiqué and the new draft require that only durum wheat (Triticum durum) must be used in pasta production. Triticum aestivum on the other hand shall not be used in pasta production. However, it is quite likely that Triticum aestivum might be found in durum wheat either from fields or harvesting machines.
