    The Food and Grocery Council has concerns over folic acid being added to flour

    The Food and Grocery Council has concerns over folic acid being added to flour


    The Government says by 2023, most flour products will contain the B vitamin that prevents birth defects like spina bifida.

    But the council says there's emerging evidence of possible health risks from over-consumption - and the effects of unmetabolised folic acid on the nervous system.

    It says it's already raised these concerns, with little impact.
