PFA to ban banaspati ghee production, sale by 2020

ISLAMABAD: The Punjab Food Authority (PFA) will place a complete ban on the production and sale of banaspati ghee by 2020. The use of banaspati ghee leads to obesity, diabetes, mental, cardiac diseases and cancer, private news channel reported.

According to experts, a large amount of trans-fatty acid and nickel are used in the industrial scale preparation of banaspati ghee.

According to PFA Director General Noor-ul-Amin Mengal, the amount of oil and ghee that a Pakistani uses annually is 18kg, whereas, a European only uses a fraction of the said amount—three per cent.
