Food adulteration is one of the serious challenges in the Indian society. Food adulteration is a process of reducing the quality of food items by either adding harmful substances in them or subtracting valuable substances from them. Traders and manufacturers all over the world indulge in such activities to exploit gullible consumers to make quick and easy money.
The Annual Public Laboratory Testing Report for 2014-15 brought out by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) says that of the 49,290 samples of food items it tested, 8,469, nearly one-fifth, were found adulterated or misbranded.
