Manufacturers will tell you what kefir, yogurt and other "milk" are actually made from24.05.2022
On July 16, a new technical regulation comes into force, designed to protect the interests of buyers of dairy products.
Its author is Roskachestvo: the organization is concerned that unscrupulous manufacturers mislead buyers by not indicating the composition of dairy products on the packaging. For example, they hide the presence of vegetable oils in it.
The new regulation will help caring parents who carefully study the composition of products. And if now the product can be called “vegetable butter”, then from July 16 it will be “butter with milk fat substitute”, as well as information on the label about the production technology.
However, do not expect that already from July 16-17, manufacturers will immediately begin to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. They have 180 days to put products on sale in new packages that comply with technical regulations. That is, for another six months, buyers need to keep their eyes open.
And so that you do not get upset, there is another good news from Roskachestvo: from the middle of 2019, dairy products with a long shelf life – ultra-pasteurized milk and some types of fermented milk products – will disappear from the sale.
Do you read product labels before buying?
