Test for Adulterants
Cultivator Phyto Lab offers various tests in identifying adulterants in various food. Food adulteration considers not only the intentional addition or substitution or abstraction of substances that adversely affect the nature, substances, and quality of foods, but also their incidental contamination during the period of growth, harvesting, storage, processing, transport, and distribution. Although simple forms of adulteration like the addition of water to milk and colored starch to turmeric are still prevalent, newer forms and types of adulteration are emerging such as urea in puffed rice to improve texture; injecting color into poor quality fruits and vegetables; addition of urea, sodium carbonate, sodium hydroxide, formaldehyde, and hydrogen peroxide to increase shelf life of milk, etc. Many adulterants might prove to be a hazard to our health especially if consumed over a long period.
