A random testing of Pathanjali products sold in Himachal Pradesh has revealed that there is no evidence of adulteration, but that there is, however, ‘misbranding’ in the case of some products.

Officials of the Health Safety and Regulation Directorate here picked 28 samples of Patanjali products manufactured by yoga guru Ramdev’s Patanjali Yogpeeth, and sent them to a Central Food Testing Laboratory, following reports from neighbouring Uttarakhand that Pathanjali products were adulterated.

The Central Forensic Laboratory, Kandaghat, found no adulteration in the samples collected from various parts of Himachal Pradesh, but detected variation in sugar quantity in some items.

The products tested included Soanpapdi, Nutty Delite biscuit, unpolished rajmah, atta noodles, cow’s ghee, moong dal namkeen, kachi ghani mustard oil, sabzi masala, biscuits, malka masoor dal, barley dalia, doodh biscuits , jeera bites, haldi powder, multi grain daliya and iodized salt.

The health department will issue a notice to Patanjali Ayurveda for the misbranding of products.
