Please exempt traditional mills from mandatory fortification of flour with folic acid

Reason for signing

  • The consultation estimates that adding folic acid to all non-wholemeal bread flour might reduce the incidence of NTDs by 5%-10%, while adding it to all flour might reduce the incidence by 15%-20%: ie the detected NTD incidence might be reduced from affecting around 1000 to around 800 - 950 pregnancies per year.
