Introduction
In the past few decades, adulteration of
food has become one of the serious
problems. Consumption of adulterated food
causes serious diseases like cancer,
diarrhea, asthma, ulcers etc. Majority of
adulterants used by the shopkeepers are
cheap substitutes easily available. For
example, adulterants in fats, oils and butter
are paraffin wax, castor oil and
hydrocarbons. Red chilli powder is mixed
with brick powder and pepper is mixed with
dried papaya seeds. These adulterants can
be easily identified by simple chemical tests.
OBJECTIVE OF PROJECT
The aim of this project is to study
some of the common food
adulterants present in different
food- stuffs.

OF OBJECTS
AND
REASONs:
01
Laws existed in a number of States in India for the prevention of adulteration of
food- stuffs, but they lacked uniformity having been passed at different times
without mutual consultation between States. The need for Central legislation for
the whole country in this matter has been felt since 1937 when a committee
appointed by the Central Advisory Board of Health recommended this step.
‘Adulteration of food-stuffs and other goods’ is now included in the Concurrent
List (III) in the Constitution of India. It has, therefore, become possible for the
Central Government to enact all India legislation on this subject. The Bill replaces
all local food adulteration laws where they exist and also applies to those States
where there are no local laws on the subject. Among others, it provides for -
i. A Central Food Laboratory to which food
samples can be referred to for final opinion in
disputed cases (clause 4),
ii. A Central Committee for Food Standards
consisting of representatives of Central and
State Governments to advise on matters arising
from the administration of the Act (clause 3).
The vesting in the Central Government of the rule-
making power regarding standards of quality for
the articles of food and certain other matters
(clause 22).
ACT 37 OF 1954: The Prevention of Food Adulteration Bill
was passed by both the house of Parliament and
received the assent of the President on 29th September,
1954. It came into force on 1st June, 1955 as THE
PREVENTION OF FOOD ADULTERATION ACT, 1954 (37 of
1954).
LIST OF ADAPTATION ORDER AND AMENDING ACTs:
1. The Adaptation of Laws (No.3) Order, 1956.
2. The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Amendment) Act,
1964 (49 of 1964).
3. The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Amendment) Act,
1971 (41 of 1971).
4. The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Amendment) Act,
1976 (34 of 1976).
5. The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Amendment) Act,
1986 (70 of 1986).
OTHER ACTS AND AMENDMENTS:
GOVERNMENT MEASURES:
To check the suppliers of food from doing so, the
government has passed a stringent act which is known
as preservation of food Adulteration Act. They have
been implemented with the objective of providing
safety to human beings in the supply of food. It covers
safety from risks involved due to contamination of
poisonous elements. The specification laid down of
various foods under the provisions of PFA Act covers
minimum basic characteristics Of the Products Below
which it is deemed to be adulterated and also covers
the maximum limit of contaminant not considered
being safe for human beings beyond a certain level.
By taking a few precautions, we can escape from consuming
adulterated products.
1. Take only packed items of well-known companies.
2. Buy items from reliable retail shops and recognized outlets.
3. Check the ISI mark or Agmark.
4. Buy products of only air tight popular brands.
5. Avoid craze for artificially coloured sweets and buy only
from reputed shops.
6. Do not buy sweets or snacks kept in open.
7. Avoid buying things from street side vendors.
PRECAUTIONS
IMPACT OF
ADULTERANTS
02
Every day we hear and watch live on television sets how the food
items are being adulterated and this spurious, unhygienic and
harmful food is entering our houses. We have seen how milk and
milk products are being made from urea, soap and other harmful
chemicals. We all know that vegetables are being given injections
to make them grow faster and overnight. The other day we saw
how steroids were being injected to chickens to make them into a
hen in a very short span of time. We have also come across
evidence as to how the fruits are being ripened with the use of
harmful chemicals. Adulteration of food causes several health
problems in humans. Some of the health hazards include stomach
ache, body ache, anemia, paralysis, and increase in the incidence
of tumors, pathological lesions in vital organs, abnormalities of
skin and eyes. Hence food adulteration should be given great
importance due to its effect in the health significance of the public.
The people are suffering from heart disease, kidney failure, skin
diseases, asthma and other chronic diseases. The people are
hapless victims of this adulteration industry running in full swing
and unchecked.

Conclusions
"Ensuring the selection of safe and unadulterated food is crucial
for daily well-being, as it prevents potential health hazards.
Visual inspection alone may not guarantee the absence of toxic
contaminants at the parts per million level. However, a careful
examination of food before purchase, looking for signs of
insects, visible fungus, foreign matter, etc., is a prudent step.
Additionally, the information provided on the label of packaged
food is vital for understanding ingredients, nutritional value,
freshness, and the recommended period for consumption.
Consumers are advised to exercise caution and avoid
purchasing food from unhygienic sources or establishments
with poor sanitation practices, as such food may lead to various
illnesses. It is advisable to steer clear of cut fruits being sold
under unhygienic conditions. Opting for certified food from
reputable shops is always a safer choice.
In conclusion, adopting these practices empowers consumers
to make informed choices, safeguarding their health and well-

  • 4. Introduction In the past few decades, adulteration of food has become one of the serious problems. Consumption of adulterated food causes serious diseases like cancer, diarrhea, asthma, ulcers etc. Majority of adulterants used by the shopkeepers are cheap substitutes easily available. For example, adulterants in fats, oils and butter are paraffin wax, castor oil and hydrocarbons. Red chilli powder is mixed with brick powder and pepper is mixed with dried papaya seeds. These adulterants can be easily identified by simple chemical tests.
  • 5. OBJECTIVE OF PROJECT The aim of this project is to study some of the common food adulterants present in different food- stuffs.
  • 6. TABLE OF CONTENTS 01 03 02 04 STATEMENT OF OBJECTS AND REASONS IMPACT OF ADULTERANTS EXPERIMENT-1 EXPERIMENT-2 05 06 EXPERIMENT-3 OBSERVATIONS
  • 8. Laws existed in a number of States in India for the prevention of adulteration of food- stuffs, but they lacked uniformity having been passed at different times without mutual consultation between States. The need for Central legislation for the whole country in this matter has been felt since 1937 when a committee appointed by the Central Advisory Board of Health recommended this step. ‘Adulteration of food-stuffs and other goods’ is now included in the Concurrent List (III) in the Constitution of India. It has, therefore, become possible for the Central Government to enact all India legislation on this subject. The Bill replaces all local food adulteration laws where they exist and also applies to those States where there are no local laws on the subject. Among others, it provides for - i. A Central Food Laboratory to which food samples can be referred to for final opinion in disputed cases (clause 4), ii. A Central Committee for Food Standards consisting of representatives of Central and State Governments to advise on matters arising from the administration of the Act (clause 3). The vesting in the Central Government of the rule- making power regarding standards of quality for the articles of food and certain other matters (clause 22).
  • 9. ACT 37 OF 1954: The Prevention of Food Adulteration Bill was passed by both the house of Parliament and received the assent of the President on 29th September, 1954. It came into force on 1st June, 1955 as THE PREVENTION OF FOOD ADULTERATION ACT, 1954 (37 of 1954). LIST OF ADAPTATION ORDER AND AMENDING ACTs: 1. The Adaptation of Laws (No.3) Order, 1956. 2. The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Amendment) Act, 1964 (49 of 1964). 3. The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Amendment) Act, 1971 (41 of 1971). 4. The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Amendment) Act, 1976 (34 of 1976). 5. The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Amendment) Act, 1986 (70 of 1986). OTHER ACTS AND AMENDMENTS:
  • 10. GOVERNMENT MEASURES: To check the suppliers of food from doing so, the government has passed a stringent act which is known as preservation of food Adulteration Act. They have been implemented with the objective of providing safety to human beings in the supply of food. It covers safety from risks involved due to contamination of poisonous elements. The specification laid down of various foods under the provisions of PFA Act covers minimum basic characteristics Of the Products Below which it is deemed to be adulterated and also covers the maximum limit of contaminant not considered being safe for human beings beyond a certain level.
  • 11. By taking a few precautions, we can escape from consuming adulterated products. 1. Take only packed items of well-known companies. 2. Buy items from reliable retail shops and recognized outlets. 3. Check the ISI mark or Agmark. 4. Buy products of only air tight popular brands. 5. Avoid craze for artificially coloured sweets and buy only from reputed shops. 6. Do not buy sweets or snacks kept in open. 7. Avoid buying things from street side vendors. PRECAUTIONS
  • 13. Every day we hear and watch live on television sets how the food items are being adulterated and this spurious, unhygienic and harmful food is entering our houses. We have seen how milk and milk products are being made from urea, soap and other harmful chemicals. We all know that vegetables are being given injections to make them grow faster and overnight. The other day we saw how steroids were being injected to chickens to make them into a hen in a very short span of time. We have also come across evidence as to how the fruits are being ripened with the use of harmful chemicals. Adulteration of food causes several health problems in humans. Some of the health hazards include stomach ache, body ache, anemia, paralysis, and increase in the incidence of tumors, pathological lesions in vital organs, abnormalities of skin and eyes. Hence food adulteration should be given great importance due to its effect in the health significance of the public. The people are suffering from heart disease, kidney failure, skin diseases, asthma and other chronic diseases. The people are hapless victims of this adulteration industry running in full swing and unchecked.

  • 26. Conclusions "Ensuring the selection of safe and unadulterated food is crucial for daily well-being, as it prevents potential health hazards. Visual inspection alone may not guarantee the absence of toxic contaminants at the parts per million level. However, a careful examination of food before purchase, looking for signs of insects, visible fungus, foreign matter, etc., is a prudent step. Additionally, the information provided on the label of packaged food is vital for understanding ingredients, nutritional value, freshness, and the recommended period for consumption. Consumers are advised to exercise caution and avoid purchasing food from unhygienic sources or establishments with poor sanitation practices, as such food may lead to various illnesses. It is advisable to steer clear of cut fruits being sold under unhygienic conditions. Opting for certified food from reputable shops is always a safer choice. In conclusion, adopting these practices empowers consumers to make informed choices, safeguarding their health and well-
