Sweets during Diwali are a must and irrespective of diabetes or other health conditions we indulge in as many sweets during this festival. Exchanging sweets and gifts is also a common tradition among Indian families and friends during Diwali. Kaju katli, laddoo, khoya barfi, and paneer barfi are some irresistible sweets that we love to gorge on during Diwali. But as the demand for sweets increases, adulterating them and adding artificial colors to make them look attractive have become a very common concern.
Some sweets that have very high chances of getting adulterated are sweets that are made of khoya and mawa. It has been found out that sweet makers usually add wheat flour or starch to make profit on these sweets. Laddoos are also adulterated as non-permitted colors are added to them to make them more appealing. Paneer Barfi is at times made with urea and harmful chemicals that make it hazardous to health.
So, it is important that you either make sweets at home or purchase sweets from trusted shops.
