superdupersingh posted a topic in HEALTH | FITNESS | DIETThe powdered spices you buy from the shops are known to be adulterated with toxic, disease causing chemicals. Why take the risk? These are just some common examples: 1. Haldi/Turmeric powder - can contain carcinogenic, organotoxic melanil yellow (azo dye) and lead chromate (paint). 2, Red chilli powder- lead oxide - carcinogenic 3. Cinnamon is adulterated with cassia bark - carcinogenic, hepatotoxic, neurotoxic. Buy whole ceylon cinnamon instead. Solution: It is safer to buy the spices whole and powder them at home. Store bought powders are easily adulterated and cannot be detected with the senses. Also during the processing of the powders, the nutrients and medicinal qualities can be destroyed .e.g with high temperatures. I have recently powdered whole haldi and noticed immediately a difference in colour, smell, taste. At the end of the day, do not take a chance with your health. Is it really worth risking over convenience? http://epicureandigest.com/2014/03/12/seven-adulterated-spices-most-likely-in-your-kitchen-now/ https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Vinita_Katiyar/publication/286453417_Food_Adulteration_The_Demonic_Onslaught_on_Health_and_Wellness/links/566a995108ae1a797e37c896/Food-Adulteration-The-Demonic-Onslaught-on-Health-and-Wellness.pdf
