Legally the term “Adulteration” means that a food product fails to meet standards. Adulteration is an addition of other substance to a food item in order to increase the quantity of the food item in raw form or prepared form, which may cause in the loss of the pure quality of food item. These substances may be food items or non-food items. Nutritive food plays vital role in maintaining proper health and also helps in preventing diseases. All body functions like metabolic, hormonal, mental, physical or chemical cannot be performed by the body without nutritive food. The world is facing a number of significant changes which will impact on food safety. But off all deception practiced, adulterating food with ingredients deleterious to health is the most criminal.
