Pickles

If the pickle that u consume has sodium benzoate cotton seed oil or corn oil, just throw it in garbage and dont buy anyone with such ingredients.

Dont know what the regulators are doing in our country. Why do they not create the needed awareness more

Dear madam, While products of cottage industries are perhaps difficult to regulate, manufacturers of food items require FSSAI certification and thus are bound to follow the specifications. There can be and may be some non-standard products but it is upto conscious citizens to initiate action through Public Health officials right upto the level of FSSAI. It is unrealistic to assume that government departments are meant for surveillance. more  
Many of us do not know the adverse effect and awareness need to be developed. more  
Is it really a matter of awareness of the consumers ? I think the concerned government agencies and the ministry should be aware about the harmful agents of any ingredients which are added to various food items by their manufacturers and ban them for ever. In the process the government must declare adding any of the banned items to any food products would tantamount to adulteration thereof. Making provisions for stringent punitive action against those found guilty of disobeying government directives in this regard would be of utmost importance. more  
Sodium benzoate and like preservatives are added, to prolong the self life of products. 1. It should be used only in safe permissible levels. 2. Many products like branded wheat flour contains even banned preservatives to prolong the self like, without even mentioning the presence on the packs. This is a serious matter and authorities should take action. more
