After Nestle’s Maggi, it is Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Atta Noodles that have come under Food Security’s scanner. Food Security and Drugs Administration (FSDA) based in Meerut has found a sample of Patanjali Atta Noodles sub-standard.
According to the team, the ash content in the tastemaker has exceeded the prescribed limits by three times. As per the report, the ash limit in Patanjali Noodles was even higher than the Maggie sample.
This came out when different types of known noodle brands, namely Maggie, Patanjali noodles and Yippee were collected and tests were done to find the ash content in the them.
Patanjali Atta Noodles had 2.69 per cent of ash content, which is the highest in all three brands. The permissible limit for ash content according to law is 1 per cent, but all the three samples failed the test and were found sub-standard for consumption.
