May 31, 2021 Agricultural and Food Science 0

Food adulteration has evolved from a basic method of deception to a complex and lucrative business. As a result, the current research was carried out to identify adulteration in various food goods accessible in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Metanil yellow (8 percent), added colour (92 percent), and saw dust were found in chilli powder samples (48 percent ). The presence of an un-permitted coloured dye ultramarine blue in dry ginger samples (8.33 percent) was discovered. Instead of silver foil, aluminium foil (4.3 percent) was found in the sweet meat samples. Unpermitted colour orange II was found in coconut burfi samples, and rhodamine B was found in cotton candy and floss candy.
