The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) distributed 36 Food Safety ‘Magic Boxes’ to the victorious participants of the National Science Seminar on Millets, with the objective of fostering food safety awareness among the younger generation.

In partnership with the National Science Centre (NSC), New Delhi, this endeavor forms a coordinated campaign to enhance understanding of the significance of millets, promote food safety measures, and cultivate healthier eating habits among young individuals.

Carefully crafted by FSSAI, the Food Safety Magic Boxes have been disseminated to schools to align with the National Science Seminar of 2023, which took place on October 12, 2023. This action was taken in response to a request from the National Science Centre and in support of the International Year of Millets to foster enthusiasm for millets.

During the seminar, 36 winning students from different States and Union Territories of the country participated and engaged in discussions on the topic “Millet – A ‘Superfood’ or a ‘Diet Fad’?”

Aligned with FSSAI’s dedication to food safety, the Food Safety Magic Box simplifies the process of identifying food adulteration. Detecting adulteration plays a pivotal role in ensuring the safety of our food. Although advanced laboratory methods offer precision and reliability, they can be expensive and time-intensive. Hence, it is imperative to create dependable “rapid screening tests” that can be easily conducted by individuals at home, allowing for a widespread evaluation of potential food adulteration when doubts arise.

FSSAI remains dedicated to imparting fundamental knowledge and fostering habits concerning food safety among young learners. The Food Safety Magic Box, a captivating educational resource, is meticulously designed to spark curiosity in students and equip them with the ability to differentiate between safe and unsafe food. Consistent with FSSAI’s overarching goal of safeguarding the food people consume, this box serves the purpose of aiding in the identification of food adulteration, addressing a pivotal aspect of food safety.
