Barcodes: the technology to combat global Food Fraud
The authenticity, quality and provenance of the food that we consume has never been more uncertain. Globalization of product supply chains coupled with the meteoric rise of e-retailing has led to reduced supply chain visibility and fostered a trading environment where food counterfeiting, misrepresentation and adulteration are commonplace. From fish to beef, honey to oils, coffee to spices, the range of foods faked across the world is broad and ever-widening.

The Story Of Indian Dairy Industry: From Scratch To Success
Introduction The livestock sector of India is one of the largest in the world. It has emerged as one of the major engines of agricultural growth in our country. As a matter of fact, the livestock sector contributes more than 25% of total agricultural GVA and 4.5% of total GVA. Among the various livestock products, milk has always held a higher rank than the other products viz. meat, eggs, wool, hide, etc. Since times immemorial milk is considered an essential component of the human diet providing various nutrients owing to its high nutritive value and also offers a wide range of health benefits. Milk is defined as the whole, fresh, clean, lacteal secretion obtained by the complete milking of the udder of one or more healthy milch animals, excluding that obtained within 15 days before or 5 days after calving or such periods as may be necessary to render the milk practically colostrum free and containing the minimum prescribed percentages of milk fat and milk solids not fat (SNF). The dairy industry of India today stands tall with the global milk production of 176.3 MT (19% of world milk production), which has reached a mark of 187.7 MT for 2019 as per the provisional report of DAHD, 2019. We have come a long way from being milk-deficit to surplus producers. The given article is an attempt to help the readers to develop an understanding of the growth of the Indian dairy industry from scratch to success.

Worldwide, more than 1000 million straws are being used daily. Drinking straws constitute approximately 4% of plastic waste but are among the items most commonly found on beaches. The combined consumption of the EU and the United States alone amounts to over 200 billion every year. According to a report, straws account for roughly 0.03 percent of the plastic waste in the ocean. This corresponds to a large amount of plastic waste generated and thus, it becomes quite challenging for the sustainability of the earth.
Application of near infrared (NIR) for analysis of food products
Introduction The near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) is part of the electromagnetic spectrum with a wavelength range of 780 nm to 2500 nm. It propagates in simple harmonic motion specifically based on the chemical bonds and molecules present in the product. The frequency of vibrations appears in the NIR of the spectrum. They are specifically associated with overtones and fundamental vibrations. NIR spectroscopy is used for both qualitative and quantitative analysis of agriculture and food products. It requires minimal sample preparation and is non-destructive. Nir spectrometer is classified as a sequential instrument that is equipped with a monochromator or filter that collects the absorbance of samples sequentially, Fourier transforms, or multiplex instrument where the frequency is determined using interferogram and multichannel instruments where the absorbance of wavelengths are detected.
Significance of Probiotics in Dairy Products
Probiotics are defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the World Health Organization as “live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”. As per the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), the concentration of live probiotic bacteria required in foods to achieve the intended health benefits is approximately 108 CFU/g at the time of consumption. Probiotic microorganisms, including bacteria and yeasts, are attracting interest due to their promising physiological effects and the value they add to probiotic-containing food products. These bacteria have a long history of safe use in food. In recent years, there is an upsurge in interest in these bacterial species as research is beginning to unravel the many possible health benefits associated with them.
