FSSAI To Start ‘Health Star Rating System’ for Packaged Foods
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is set to introduce a new star rating system, the “Health Star Rating System”, for packaged foods. Under this, the packaged foods will display the number of stars on the Front Of Pack Label (FOPL), which indicates how healthy or unhealthy they are depending upon the amount of salt, sugar, and fat they have.
- The Health Star Rating rates the overall nutritional profile of packaged food and assigns it a rating from ½ a star to 5 stars.5 Star means the food is healthy & the least( ½ ) star means the food is unhealthy.
- The Health Star rating system is one of five types of labels that were considered, including Nutriscore, Warning Label, Multiple Traffic Lights (MTL) and Monochrome GDA.
- This regulation is based on the report from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM)-Ahmedabad & Dexter Consultancy Pvt. Limited which conducted a study on the impact of front-of-the-pack labelling for packaged and processed foods in India.
- This system will be similar to the one that is being used by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency for assessing the energy efficiency in electrical devices.
