Maharashtra is the 2nd state after UP in the number of adulteration cases reported in 2016-17.

Its advised to perform simple home tests for adulteration of products like Milk, Ghee, Tea, Coffee etc.

E.g. Clay in coffee powder can be detected by adding it in transparent glass of water, stir it for 1 minute, keep it aside for 5 minute. Clay will settle down while coffee powder will float at the top.

Iron filings in tea can be detected by moving a magnet on a glass plate of tea powder. Iron filings will be seen on the magnet.
