As the scorching summer heat drives up the watermelon demand, consumers are urged to exercise caution. The Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) shared a video and suggested precise methods to identify adulterated or fake watermelons. As per FSSAI, one can check the adulteration in watermelon through a simple cotton ball. Cut the watermelon into half and rub the cotton ball on the red pulp of the fruit. If it is adulterated, the cotton ball will become red. It can be estimated that the chemical called erythrosine has been added to this watermelon. Several social media users shared the shocking result after trying the FSSAI-recommended method.
