A photo feature by SK Enamul Haq

The month of Ramadan is marked not only by restraint but also by a steep rise in adulterated food items. Food adulteration is a serious crime under the Pure Food Ordinance (1959). Textile colours are added to iftari items and snacks while calcium carbide is sprayed over certain fruits to ripen them quickly. Many imported fruits such as grapes and apples are dipped in diluted formalin. Poor coordination among different government bodies is mainly responsible behind this. This photo feature by SK Enamul Haq shows that effective market monitoring may go a long way to put brakes on food adulteration.
