FSSAI license for energy drinks in India is required for people who want to work in the energy drink production industry. Most individuals now use energy drinks regularly since they re-energize the body and eliminate lethargy and exhaustion. As a result, energy drinks are becoming increasingly popular, particularly among young people.

In your work or personal life, pressure is on all fronts. Drinking energy drinks can help you relieve stress and boost your mental clarity in order to deal with challenges of a different sort. Energy drinks are liquids that include caffeine and artificial sweeteners.  

Why is FSSAI License for Energy Drinks in India Compulsory?
 

According to one of the stunning disclosures made in World Health Organization research, exceeding caffeine limits has various adverse effects on kids and adults, including changes in behaviour, palpitations, and other health difficulties. In addition, excessive usage of energy drinks may offer major health risks, such as renal damage and excessive blood pressure, among other things.

FSSAI, India's food regulating organisation, has introduced FSSAI standards and an FSSAI License for energy drinks. According to the FSSAI recommendations and new standards on Food Safety and Standards Regulation, 2011, all energy drink makers must follow the rules stipulations. Therefore, to launch an energy drink company in India, apply for an FSSAI License or registration.

FSSAI Standards for Energy Drinks in India

  • After realising that several prominent energy drinks in the Indian market contain caffeine in amounts more than the recommended daily intake limit, the FSSAI has initiated efforts to control caffeinated beverages.
  • Caffeinated drinks are non-alcoholic beverages that contain more than 145 mg of caffeine per litre, according to FSSAI guidelines.
  • The maximum caffeine level permitted must not exceed 300 mg per litre. Sucralose must not exceed 300 ppm, and saccharin sodium must not exceed 100 pm. Neotame has a permitted limit of 33 ppm. The methyl ester concentration shall not exceed 770 ppm.
  • The beverage makers must select a Food Supervisor to determine if the beverage's safety levels are adequate.
  • Another need is for an audit and hazard analysis to be performed regularly to determine whether the beverages comply with the FSSAI standards[1] and recommendations.
  • If any fruit is included in the components of the energy drinks, a disclaimer regarding the fruit content must be included on the beverage labels.
     

Packaging and Labelling Standards

  • All energy drink production facilities must include a warning statement on the product label stating that the drink is unsuitable for pregnant women or children under a specific age.
  • On the product label, the producer must provide the maximum daily consumption each day.
  • The energy drinks market in India must remove the word 'energy' and refer to the product as a 'caffeinated beverage'.
  • Plastic bottles constructed of polycarbonate and polyethene terephthalate (PET) with a blue colour, such as a five-litre bottle or larger, must meet IS 9833, the Indian Standard. Furthermore, the pigment or colour employed cannot exceed 60 mg/litre.
  • All goods containing Aspartame, Acesulfame, and/or any other artificial sweetener for which specific labelling measures are provided under Regulation 2.4.5 of the Food License (Packaging and Labeling) Regulations, 2011 should not be stored or distributed in returnable containers.

Process of FSSAI Registration in India

It is a 14-digit registration number found on all food containers. The 14-digit registration number contains information on the assembly state and the producer's permit. This registration procedure is intended to increase accountability on the part of the FBO to preserve the quality of the food items. The Food Safety & Standards (Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses) Regulations, 2011, govern the licensing and registration process and standards.

The process of FSSAI Registration in India follows the following steps-

FBOs can receive FSSAI registration by completing & submitting Form A, an application for Registration or Form B, an application for State & Central License on the FoSCoS site. Offline Registration is also possible for FBOs by submitting Form A or Form B to the Food and Safety Department.

The relevant documentation must be submitted with the FSSAI registration form. The papers must be posted electronically on the FoSCos site at the time of application submission or physically provided to the Food and Safety Department together with the application.

The Department has seven days from the date of receipt of an application, either physically or electronically through the FoSCoS site, to approve or reject the FSSAI registration form. If the application is refused, the applicant must be notified in writing.

The Department will review the papers provided.

If required, the Department may examine the food facilities before issuing the FSSAI registration certificate.

If the Department determines that the FBO fits all of the specified requirements, it will issue an FSSAI certificate with the registration number and the applicant's email ID photo. Connecting to the FoSCoS portal allows the applicant to get the FSSAI registration certificate.

During business hours, the FSSAI registration certificate shall be conspicuously displayed at the FBO.
