Indian Incense Society issues first reference list of more than 9,000 ingredients
It is reported that this is the first time India has published a reference list of flavor and fragrance ingredients in India, which will serve as a standard document and reference for the industry to follow and use.
According to the report, many of India’s flavor and fragrance ingredients are derived from natural plant extracts, but most are synthetic flavors and synthetic substances. The list identifies ingredients that are generally recognized as safe, as consumers are becoming more aware of the products,” said Rishabh, president of FAFAI.
To protect the interests of consumers and meet their needs for transparency and clarity, we have pioneered the first reference list of ingredients,” said Rishabh C. Kothari, president of FAFAI. FAFAI is committed to the government’s ‘Make in India’ vision and call for ‘localization,’ and this list of more than 9,000 widely used and recognized safe ingredients in the Indian flavor and fragrance industry is a step in that direction. A big step.”
