Horror stories of food adulteration in India go viral

An X user's post on how detergent was used to make milk look whiter and frothier has opened Pandora's box on social media with several other users joining in to share their experiences with adulterated food. It all started when an entrepreneur Ram (@ramprasad_c) -- who was into manufacturing liquid detergent -- recalled what one of his sales executives told him in 2005. "On food safety in India, here is a story that shocked me. Many years ago, I launched a new liquid detergent while working at a large company. One of the sales guys came up to me and said, he’d have sold a lot more if the fragrance wasn’t so strong," Ram wrote. When asked if any customer had given any feedback regarding the fragrance, the sales executive said that a lot of people bought liquid detergents to add to milk. Apparently, it made the milk look whiter and frothier. He also claimed that a rival company had a similar product with a mild fragrance and that such customers preferred to use it instead. "I told the guy we aren’t changing the product. I stopped consuming lassi, and yoghurt from those markets after that," Ram said. Another X user shared a similar incident with a friend's peanut candy manufacturing unit. "One of my friends was running a peanut candy factory and the cook who turned out temporarily for work in the place of the permanent one, used to make more peanut candies which were much crispier... On enquiry, my friend came to know that this new cook was adding dishwash liquid to the raw mixture of candies before cooking and that's what made them crispier and the production volume too was higher," wrote Rocky Bhai
