ExpressiveThe Food and Drug Authority has obligated manufacturers and importers of food products to add the word “similar” to modified milk and dairy products with vegetable oils, in order to clarify the ingredients for the consumer.

The authority clarified that the products concerned are those in which the substitution is wholly or partly for milk fat and the use of vegetable oils, and they are called “cream-like, cheese-like, evaporated milk-like” and others.

She emphasized that these products are safe and all the materials used in them are subject to the technical regulations and specifications issued by them.

The inspectors conducted 794 inspection rounds at the factories and warehouses of importers and supermarkets to ensure their compliance with the decision, which resulted in a violation of 31 of them, due to the presence of 176 violating products with an estimated weight of 1045 tons.
