When do you need to add milk and eggs to milk and egg products?
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has released a new guidance on milk and milk products, and the answer is “at least at the beginning of the cooking process”.
The agency’s new guidance, published in the latest edition of its Milk and Milk Products Regulatory Bulletin (MMR), states that a food manufacturer should add milk, milk powder, and/or milk concentrate to a product in the first 12 to 24 hours after it is cooked.
This would help reduce the amount of milk that would be lost from the final product, and reduce the risk of milk and/o eggs entering the stomach.
However, the FSA has found that it is unlikely that adding these ingredients to a food at the start of cooking will reduce the amounts of milk lost during cooking, as these are not absorbed through the stomach at the end of cooking.
If the food is then eaten at the same time as the remaining ingredients in the food, then it may have absorbed the milk and may end up with milk and o eggs in the stomach (although this is less likely in the case of eggs).
It is also possible that adding the ingredients to the finished product at the time of cooking could increase the amount lost through cooking.
However, if the food has already been cooked, the time is unlikely to be significant enough to have a significant effect.
There is also no evidence that adding milk and dairy products to milk products increases their shelf life, meaning that consumers may be able to purchase milk and other dairy products at the supermarket if they do not want to buy them at home.
The FSA also suggests that adding food ingredients to milk to reduce the concentration of fats in milk before cooking could be useful.
However, the advice is that it should be used sparingly and only for the first 24 hours.
This new guidance has been published after a long process of consultation, which has involved more than 500,000 comments.
The guidelines will be reviewed by the Food Standards Board (FSB) and the Food and Veterinary Standards Agency, before being published in July 2018.
