BIS CERTIFICATION FOR BLENDING UNITS FOR MANUFACTURING FORTIFIED RICE
IS 17854:2022

Consuming fortified rice overcomes micronutrient deficiencies in people. The Government of India promotes the consumption of fortified rice through various social security programmes such as the Public Distribution System.

To strengthen the rice fortification ecosystem in the country, BIS has begun the development of Indian Standards, BIS certification for fortified rice and related commodities, and the equipment and machinery used to manufacture fortified rice to ensure consistent quality of final products. In this regard, IS 17854:2022 for blending units has been developed.

Let's take a closer look at IS 17854:2022 for Blending Units manufacturing fortified rice.

IS 17854:2022 covers the equipment used in the manufacture of fortified rice. This standard specifies the requirements for blending units and the types of blending units used to produce fortified rice.

This standard specifies the construction and performance requirements for Equipment for the Manufacturing of Fortified Rice. Depending on the capacity and requirements, the blending unit must be of the batch or continuous type. The materials for components must follow the specifications specified in table 1 of the standard.
