Report to system if found to be confused after home inspection: Asi. Commissioner
Food adulteration is on the rise and in many places raids have been rife with chemicals. Food adulteration comes across in lab tests when not everyone 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 based on it, as it has a color-changing nature in certain blends. 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.
