Adulteration of our daily food. What can we do?
Are there any ways to deal with adulterated food? Put forth your suggestions.
Every week we read about adulteration of food items, vegetables, fruits, cereals being coloured or injected to ripen earlier or to become bigger. Olive oil mixed with rapeseed oil and sunflower oil being mixed with palm oil. Stones in dried cereals, chicory and tamarind in coffee powder, the list is endless.
For the festival, we bought organic natural brown coloured sugar and a handful was left out. It became sticky and on mixing with water the brown fine powder dissolved and what was left was regular sugar slightly bigger in size. I was surprised by this in organic foods also.
How do mothers or parents ensure that the food we feed them is safe?
