Use of Cassia alert
70 per cent of Ayurveda drugs are supposed to contain cinnamon. However, a substantial part of this might be cassia, which is much cheaper and easily available.
It also says import and retail of Cassia has been banned by FSSAI in Nov 16 as it creates health problems such as kidney /liver damages and even cancer.
Can FSSAI please share on weekly or monthly basis any items like this that they ban for consumer use. Awareness for such things will be great help now that we have this platform. more
