Requesting fssai to public test reports for all olive oil brands
I think all olive oil brands in India, whether extra virgin or extra extra, are mixed. It just doesn't smell or taste the same as one I have gotten from overseas. India is a country of spurious products. You never get what you pay for.
I urge fssai to publish lab testing reports of all brands in market in consumer interest more
Though I do not put the oil into the use of our kitchen being it costly but as I read the labels on the bottles in stores, I think its no where claimed that the products are 100% olive oil, which may also not be possible as olive is not produced in our country. If imported pure olive oil is made available for selling in retail, its price may go beyond reach of majority of our present users. more
Olive oil is a costly one and in India getting a virgin brand is difficult, even though the cost is high. FSSAI should take corrective action. more
There are number of food items of doubtful quality packed in plastic bags with stickers on them with or without FSSAI marking. Such packets are being sold not only on streets/bus stands but in many shops on their self service counters. Take for example “NAMKIN” or biscuits packets which are prepared in unhygienic conditions in narrow lanes in places like Shahadra , not only in Delhi but other towns as well. Within few days of purchase such items start giving foul smell and bad taste that may infect the throat. FSSAI should, from time to time, not only test quality of such items but also inspect their places of manufacturing. more
YES.ELIANA IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I LIVED IN ITALY FOR ONE YEAR AND I HAVE VISITED OLIVA OLIO FACTORIES. THE OLIVD OIL SOLD IN INDIA IS DFINITLY NOT THE ORIGINAL OLIVE OIL more
Use of OLIVE Oil is a bad choice anyway. Better use Mustard Oil. Of course, FSSAI should publish all important test results of all oils from all companies. more
