The panel will also recommend FSSAI on prescriptions of regulations for display of fat, sugar and salt on food products sold and served in eating joints or catering facilities besides labeling requirements for packaged food. The panel will also advise the regulator about the health risks associated with high intake of fat, sugar and salt.
