Advisory Council on Food Safety Standards Authority of India

The public has been cautioned to avoid falling for this fraud by the Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). According to officials, watermelons that are sold in stores include an additional ingredient called erythrosine. It is a kind of red coloring that is applied to beverages, candies, and confections. The addition of this hazardous chemical color to any fruit has been outlawed by the authorities. The FSSAI has offered several accurate techniques to distinguish tampered-with or fake watermelons in such a scenario. Before purchasing them, you may use it to distinguish between fresh, red, and delicious watermelons.

How Can Adulteration Be Checked?

A simple cotton ball can be used to check for adulteration in watermelon, according to the FSSAI. Watermelon should be cut in half. Take any of the two portions after that. Next, give the watermelon’s crimson pulp a couple quick rubs with the cotton ball. A reddish-purple cotton ball indicates adulteration. We might speculate that this watermelon has been supplemented with erythrosine. Should it develop no color, the watermelon is okay to eat.
