Food Adulteration Detection Workshop was conducted in the Biotechnology college for our Second Year students. In Nutrition science as per the syllabus, SY students get the theoretical knowledge about food adulteration and how it can be detected in various ways by doing simple experiments at home as well as laboratory. The experiments carried out at home or at domestic level does not require chemicals but in many of the food items to detect adulteration some simple experiments have to be carried out by using basic chemicals like dilute hydrochloric acid or dilute sulphuric acid. To show the students practically how the color changes or how the food constituent changes if the food is adulterated, the SY students were taken to the Biotech department of D Y Patil University. Their professors conducted the experiment and thus the detection of food adulteration was much more clear to the students as they saw it practically.
