FSSAI launches Initiatives to Curb Food Adulteration

FSSAI launches Initiatives to address the widespread problem of food adulteration, revealing its commitment to ensuring food safety and integrity.

As per the latest update on the FSSAI website, a new resource called the “Detect Adulteration with Rapid Test (DART) Book” has been launched to assist consumers in recognizing common food adulterants in everyday household products.

Featuring more than 50 convenient tests across various food categories like milk, oils, sugar, and spices, the DART booklet provides consumers with clear instructions and visual aids to differentiate between genuine and adulterated goods. These measures are designed to empower consumers, strengthen surveillance efforts, and promote awareness of food safety on a national scale.

Additionally, the FSSAI has introduced the “Food Safety on Wheels” (FSW) program, which involves the arrangement of mobile food testing laboratories to provide with necessary facilities for on-site qualitative testing.

These versatile vehicles travel to remote locations, public events, educational institutions, and consumer groups, conducting rapid assessments for specific contaminants in frequently consumed food products such as clarified butter, dairy, confectioneries, and seasonings.

FSSAI has introduced the “Food Safety Magic Box”, a food safety testing kit designed for school children. This portable kit, complete with a guidance book, allows students to conduct more than 100 simple tests to identify adulterants in different food items. This initiative aims to cultivate awareness and encourage responsible consumer habits among young individuals in the nation.

Officials from FSSAI have expressed their dedication to upholding the integrity of the food supply chain and protecting public health through various initiatives. By utilizing technology and engaging with the community, the authority attempts to effectively address food adulteration and promote a culture of food safety across the nation.
