A bread flour substitution for milk and milk products
RTE 4 News has learnt that the government is working on a plan to introduce a substitute for milk to replace bread flour.
The dairy and bread flour industries have been in a state of crisis since a recent milk price rise caused a spike in milk prices.
The government has been asked to make a final decision on the proposal by the end of next month.
According to a dairy industry source, the government has asked the industry to start with the use of a different flour and then consider alternatives to increase milk supply.
The source said the plan will involve the use the wheat flour, which is considered a more nutritious product than the wheat in milk.
“The plan is to start from a new flour and add the other products such as the nutritionally appropriate fats, sugars and other nutrients,” the source said.
The plan could take several years to complete.
The dairy industry is working with experts from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India.
“We have been working with the industry for the last two years to implement a plan.
It has been a long process and we are ready for this,” a dairy and food industry official said.”
I am sure it will be implemented and that will be good news for the dairy and dairy products industries.
We have to take it very seriously,” the official added.
