Restaurants may have to mention cooking oil details on menu

The food served in hotels may now come with a detailed information about the kind of oil or fat used in preparation.

This move has been suggested by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India-FSSAI.

The proposal, if passed, will ensure that food items on menus in hotels and food outlets have the details about the ghee, vanaspati or oil used for cooking.

It also states that restaurants should only be allowed to buy their raw materials from licensed or registered sellers to make sure that food served is of the best quality.

The FSSAI has been working towards regulating the quality of food served by hotels in the country.
