THERE IS ACID IN YOUR ROSOGULLA



Before you pop the next rosogolla , think twice. It might contain a hazardous acid often used for cleaning toilets, says an official survey in West Bengal .

The survey by the state milk federation found that many small shop owners were selling sweetmeats made of casein — the main ingredient in such products — that had been prepared with muriatic acid.

Casein should be prepared with citric acid, but milk traders and sweetmeat makers find muriatic acid cheaper. Muriatic acid is, however, considered harmful for health.

The government is believed to be considering ways of handling the "sensitive issue" because of larger public health concerns.

"The government is looking into the matter. This is a sensitive issue because on the one hand there is the question of public health and on the other a large casein-making industry," according to animal husbandry department official Jayanta Dutta Gupta.

Usually casein is supplied to sweetmeat makers from villages. The casein is then washed with water before being used in sweets like rosogolla and sandesh . But traces of muriatic acid remain in the cleaned casein.

The government is caught in a bind because it is stressing on preparing casein through automatic machines, but that again will mean loss of jobs for villagers involved in making casein.

"A balance has to be struck," said Dutta Gupta adding that another survey would soon start to find a remedy to the situation.

Sweetmeat makers are trying to defend themselves by saying there is no way they can find out what their suppliers are using to prepare the casein.

"We get all our casein from villages. We have no means to check what is used to make it," says Sanat Mistry, a sweetmeat shop owner.

West Bengal 's sweetmeat industry is worth about Rs 20 billion and it employs about ten lakh people. The state has about a lakh big and small sweet shops.

The state's sweetmeat industry is undergoing a technological transformation to brace for competition from the confectionery and ice cream industries.

It also perceives a threat to traditional sweets from new patenting laws and is registering its indigenous products before a foreign company hijacks the rosogolla or mishti doi .

Bengali sweetmeats have a good demand in the markets of Europe and the US .

Some innovative sweetmeat makers in the city have introduced "herbal sweets" that are being certified by food technologists as not only safe but also high in medicinal and food value.


West Bengal has given the world at least 40 varieties of sweetmeats, some of which are available only in the state. The rosogolla is perhaps the most famous of the lot.

For those who get packet milk,

Farmers use soap ( easy and cheap) to pass the fat test , and It is harmful to health. This case has been reported in Nagpur. But in TN farmers use sugar to make their milk pass their test.

Aburvaraagam,

How true is this message? The way it sounds, we should be seeing some serious epidemic in West Bengal. People have been consuming Rasgullas for ages and many shopes pretty much use the same recipe and ingredients as well..

As for as people in this forum..... the message, even if quotes reliable information, it only talks about small shops in West Bengal... It does not talk about all the shops nor about the tinned variety you find in Indian Grocery shops in US...

I have had this several times - and I am NOT 'exactly' sick.. (you might call me a sick person, but thats another story... !!). And so far as I know its pretty safe...

:) ofcourse, if some kind hearted folks (Shy, are you listening... SHY... !!) and moderators, think it is unsafe, and want to protect our health, please make some every now and then, and send it to us.. :) We would be eternally grateful - all the elaichi, and some talented 'kai-manam' kooda.. oh.. wow...

I think we tend to get too worried about food - and pause not to ask if this info could be wrong.. ? Me... I always question authority, and occasionally listen to their answers !!

....

Neenga ketkara question is correct,but i read this article in a newspaper yesterday. Also u can read the same article in Deccan Chronicle newspaper.

I am not a scientist to do research on this n say if it is true or not. I just wanted to share wat i read in the paper that s all. Moreover i never stopped anyone from eating Rosogullas.

Aburvaraagam,

Please don't take it to be a personal criticism. I am not complaining about your post - but was kinda surprised at the reaction we got from everyone.

As often the case, most news papers indulge in 'exaggerating' their stories - and very easily condemn or praise anything without adequate reasoning. It then becomes our onus to check the truth in each message. Often it results in unnecessary panic or worry... Have seen it several times happening.

My post was merely to point out the possible loop holes in the original article. Ultimately neither of us can change any one from eat or abstain from anything.

The content of my post still stands the same - but if you feel it implied any criticisms on you, my apologies. That was not my intention.

Thanks!
