Solution

The correct option is C All of the above
Food adulteration is the mixing of toxic substances in a food item that reduces the nutritional value of the food. Adulterated food is not good for health. Adulteration is done by the sellers to get economic profit. Sometimes adulteration happens unintentionally in the lack of knowledge. Some rules are made under the food adulteration act to prevent the adulteration. For example, adulteration of metanil yellow or khesari dal in arhar dal is prohibited because it causes paralysis. Artificial sweetener is used as adulterant which gives less energy than the natural sugar. Adding more than one type of chemical preservative is banned because some additives have more than one effect. When the additives come in contact, they may react with each other. So, the correct option is D.
