Artificial and Synthetic Fortification

Why is FSSAI hell bent on milk fortification using artificial and synthetic chemicals? Amul is opposing it.

FSSAI - give evidence that fortification is good or back off.

Fully agree with the comments of Mr. Rajeev Arora. By creating some hoax(es) and gimmicks, unscrupulous formulators/manufacturers are finagling the common people. Thanks to directors of AMUL that that they have preferred to cling to cling to their values and have not climbed the bandwagon of befooling the common people. more  
One who can buy and drink milk at the present rates, can also buy and consume Vit-A and D..don't know how much helpful it'd be for really poor kids who need it the most.
Agree fortification artificially is not good...but we are consuming lot many fortified foods today eg wheat flour, salt, nourishing drinks like horlicks etc...isnt it ??? more  
Amul's stand makes sense - deficiencies of vitamins A and D in other part of the food chain should not be compensated by adding chemicals to milk products especially oily vitamins A & D. Excess consumption of A & D can be harmful to health. more

Although I support Natural fortification, considering the grave situation of our children, I am supporting the artificial fortification. However, like allopathic medicine it may have side effects, which if added in controlled quantity, will serve the purpose. Let us hope for the best of our Mothers & children. Jai Hind, Jai Bharat! more
