The Minister of Economy, Mohammed Al-Hawij, has stressed the need to retest the flour samples to ensure whether they contain potassium bromate or not.

This came during his meeting on Wednesday with a number of mill owners, in the presence of a number of ministry officials, the Bakers Syndicate, and the Quality Center for Standardization, in order to follow up the implementation of the decision to ban the import of potassium bromate and prevent its use or handling.

For their part, the participants denied what was circulating on social media regarding the use of potassium bromate in the bread industry, saying the source that confirmed the use of it was not approved by the state.
