Bakery products are at the forefront of the new Food Standards Agency (FSA) consultation on voluntary targets for reductions in saturated fat and added sugar.

The consultation will focus on biscuits, cakes, pastries and buns, and will also look at portion size reductions. "We want to make it easier for people to choose foods with reduced saturated fat and sugar or smaller portion sizes," said an FSA spokeswoman.

Food and Drink Federation communications director Julian Hunt said: "We are disappointed the FSA appears committed to arbitrary targets for specific nut-rients in certain foods, rather than focusing on the need to achieve a balanced diet and lifestyle."
