A meaningful legal move against wheat flour terrorism of Sri Lanka, only if implementable

Another law against the hyped wheat flout terrorism of this country! This time Sri Lanka Ministry of Health has decided to bring new laws to prevent the removal of bran when processing wheat flour, a good move to save the health of the wheat flour food lovers who are facing health risks due to consumption of too much starch.

So far, the wheat flour processors could remove bran up to 74%.The wheat flour in the market contained only 26% bran that contains the most of the nutrients of the flour.

The Ministry has decided to permit only the removal of 20% of bran from wheat flour.

Sri Lanka has too many laws but less understanding among public and the low enforcers too regarding them., Recall, the same Minister Maithripala de Silva banned use of polythene less than 20 microns of weight when he was in charge of environment.

  1. As documented by Prof.Wickmanayake,History of Wheat Flour in Sri Lanka | පාන් පිටි වල ඉතිහාසය දන්නවාද? After the world war 2 , wheat flour continued to be imported from Australia, Europe and North America. Food aid came in the form of wheat flour. Later, wheat was brought in as grain, to be milled locally. In 1976 a Singaporean firm presented to propose to the government that they be allowed to construct a modern flour mill at Trincomalee and to convert all wheat brought into the country to wheat flour. Flour of 70% extraction would be given to the government, and the 30% of bran would be property of the firm.

    In 1977 the Flour Mill constructed by the Prima Co. is a very large eight storied building. Wheat grain brought in ships is sucked to the upper floor and undergoes various changes which convert the grain to 74% extraction flour, as it passes from one floor to the next.
