MDH Speaks Out on Spice Ban Research_MISSING Test Reports

Recently, Indian spice-maker MDH responded to the ban imposed on some of its products by food safety authorities in Singapore and Hong Kong. The brand denied claims of its spices containing ethylene oxide, a cancer-causing pesticide, and emphasized the lack of evidence to support such allegations.

Clarification by MDH

MDH stated that neither the FSSAI nor the Spice Board of India had received any test reports from the authorities in Singapore or Hong Kong regarding the alleged presence of ethylene oxide in their spices. The company highlighted that they had not received any communication from the regulatory authorities in these countries, further reinforcing their stance that the claims were baseless and unsubstantiated.

Assurance of Quality

MDH assured consumers that ethylene oxide is not used in any stage of processing, packing, or storing their spices. With a legacy of 105 years, MDH emphasized its commitment to providing high-quality products and maintaining the trust of its consumers.

The brand’s dedication to quality and safety reflects in its adherence to the standards set by its late founding chairman. MDH reassured customers of its commitment to health and safety standards, both domestically and internationally, through its tagline “Asli Masale Sach Sach, MDH MDH.” This underscores the company’s focus on offering authentic and high-quality spices.

Ban on Indian Spices
