Chile: Proposed regulation to fortify foods with vitamin D

The members of the Congressional Health Committee approved in general, the bill that provides for the obligation to fortify certain foods with vitamin D. The proposal will now be studied in particular by the same body after the Chamber authorized to continue with its review.

Specifically, the project establishes that:

“Producers of milk and its derivatives of dairy origin, as well as those of wheat flour, cereals and vegetable oils, shall fortify or add, in the amounts defined by the competent authority, the vitamins and minerals required for most human cellular functions, especially vitamin D”.
