The Food for Infant Nutrition Amendment Regulations, 2022, which relate to the updated limits of selenium, manganese, iron, and biotin, will go into effect in 2022, according to the FSSAI.

According to a food authority order, the Food Safety and Standards (Food for Infant Nutrition) Regulations, 2020, are in effect as of October 1, 2022, and the updated limits for selenium, manganese, iron, and biotin must also be implemented in compliance with the applicable Act’s provisions. The order states that the decision has been made to operationalize the FSS (Food for Infant Nutrition) Amendment Regulations, 2022, effective October 1, 2022.

The limitations for these nutrients were established under the Amendment Regulations of 2022, where the limits for selenium were set at 5–40 mcg (micrograms) for requirements per 100 g and 1–8.5 mcg for requirements per 100 kcal in the regulations numbers 7, 8, and 9 and 10 and 11, respectively.

The limit for iron in Regulation 9 has also been set at 0.42-1.20 mg for every 100 kcal need and 2-5.65 mg for every 100 g requirement. The limit for manganese is established at 5–500 mcg and 1–106.40 mcg per 100 g and 100 kcal, respectively, while the limit for biotin is set at 7.50–50 mcg and 1.60–10 mcg.

The FSSAI states that the limitations for these nutrients were changed in response to industry associations’ complaints about the challenges associated with manufacturing and reformulating infant food products while maintaining the required level of these trace elements.

The transition period for the 2020 FSS (Food for Infant Nutrition) Regulations’ implementation had already been extended by the FSSAI until October 1, 2022.
