LAHORE: The Punjab Food Authority (PFA) will place a complete ban on the production and sale of banaspati ghee by 2020.

The decision to place a ban came after a meeting held by the PFA’s scientific committee on Wednesday. 

The use of banaspati ghee leads to obesity, diabetes, mental, cardiac diseases and cancer.

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.
