Adding folic acid to flour - give your views

The Government wants your views on whether flour millers should be required by law to add folic acid to flour.

Raising folate levels in women who could become pregnant would help reduce the number of babies born with birth defects of the brain, spine or spinal cord, known as ‘neural tube defects’.

Find our more about the consultation and how to give your views.

The deadline to respond is Monday 9 September 2019.
