Food Adulteration and Role of Hygiene


The purpose of this book is to put out the knowledge of understanding and to identify a few common culinary adulterants. Food is essential for life’s sustenance and nourishment. Food adulteration defrauds the consumer and can pose grave health risks in certain instances. In accordance with the provisions of the Prevention of Food Adulteration Act of 1954 and the rules promulgated thereunder, food adulteration is a punishable offence. Hygiene is a concept associated with medicine as well as personal and professional care practices related to most aspects of daily life, although it is most commonly associated with sanitation and preventative measures. Personal hygiene can prevent food borne illness. Food-poisoning-causing bacteria can be found on everyone, including healthy individuals. Due to the significance of food, contemporary society views food adulteration as a grievous and unforgivable socioeconomic transgression. In fact, “The Adulteration of Food Stuffs and Other Food” is a concurrent list item in the Indian Constitution. In order to prevent this food adulteration, the Indian government has enacted “The Prevention of Food Adulteration Act, 1954” as a piece of consumer legislation.
