 Food adulteration is on the rise and in many places raids have been blamed on profiteering.  Food adulteration is encountered in lab tests when not all people can get this test done.  So how do people easily know if what they have bought is safe or not?

 Rajkot District Food and Drugs Assistant Commissioner L.D.  Discussing with Faldu, he said that the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India has issued a dart book i.e. Detect Alteration with Rapid Test which can be downloaded from the website and by studying it one can easily know whether it is adulterated in milk, ghee, oil, cereals.  Whether or not.

 No other devices are required for this.  In some tests, iodine, called tincture, is found in medical stores and can be detected because it has a color-changing nature.  Insist on the bill at the time of purchase and if there is any confusion, report it to the corporation or the district administration and direct action can be taken where the purchase is made.

 Find out what foods can be tested

 Water in milk

 Place a drop of milk on a smooth surface like glass.  If these droplets descend to the ground and leave a white line behind, it is pure milk, if it does not leave and flows immediately, it contains excess water.

 Starch in milk, cheese

 Put two drops of tincture in milk and see if it changes color to purple and is mixed in it.  If there is cheese or mash, first put it in water, boil it and after it cools down, add tincture.

 Mashed potatoes in ghee

 Put two teaspoons of ghee in a small glass bowl.  Put two drops of tincture iodine in it. If it is mixed, it will change color and turn blue.

 Toxic chemicals in oils

 Put a little oil in a glass bowl.  Put butter in it. If the oil turns red, it contains a toxic chemical called TOCP.

 Detergent in milk

 Take a small amount of milk and add the same amount of water and then stir evenly.  Pure milk will have very little foam while when mixed it will have a thick layer of foam.

 Chili bran

 Pour the chilli powder into a glass of water.  Pure chili will sit down with the same color.  The straw will float on the water.

 Grass b in cumin

 Grass seeds are dipped in charcoal powder and mixed with cumin.  Take a handful of cumin in the palm and rub it. If black color appears in the palm, it is confused.

 Black pepper

 Put black pepper in a glass, black pepper will sit on the bottom and papaya seeds mixed in it will float.

 Corrosion in tea powder

 Make a small pile of tea powder and rotate the magnet around it.  Pure dust will not make a difference but corrosion or iron powder will be attracted to the magnet.

 Color in chili powder

 Fill a glass with water and add chilli powder.  If color is added, the color will appear to separate from the powder.

 Color in turmeric

 Put turmeric in a glass jar.  Pure turmeric will sit down, leaving a light yellow color.  If confused, a dark yellow color will appear.

 Sugar in honey

 Put a little honey in a glass of water.  If honey dissolves in water, it will be sugar.  Pure honey does not melt.  In addition to this, put honey in the cotton wool and burn it, pure honey will burn immediately and there will be noise in the mixture.

 Confused in hing

 Take hing in a steel spoon and place it near the candle.  Pure hing will burn like camphor.  If it is mixed, it will not burn.  In addition, if you mix hing in a glass and mix it, the foam will turn and sit on the bottom and will not melt.  To know the third mixture, add hing in water and add tincture. If the color changes, it is mixed.
