UP lab founds Yippee noodles sub-standard

ITC strongly refuted the claims, saying all its products are \"manufactured in state-of-the-art, world-class facilities, complying with strict quality and hygiene norms.\"

In a lab testing in the state of Uttar Pradesh, the lab has allegedly found ITC's Yippee noodles sub-standard, a charge that the company vehemently denied.

According to ITC, the standards prescribed for different categories of products are being applied to its products, which comply with strict quality and hygiene norms, reported PTI.

Food Inspector of the UP government, in a report dated August 27, 2015, stated that after testing sample of ITC's Yippee noodles manufactured at Haridwar, it was found that "total ash of the tastemaker exceeds the maximum prescribed limit of 1 per cent. Hence, the sample is sub-standard."

ITC strongly refuted the claims, saying all its products are "manufactured in state-of-the-art, world-class facilities, complying with strict quality and hygiene norms."

"The contention raised by the food inspector is erroneous. The standards being referred to are for a separate category, Macaroni products. These cannot be applied to instant noodles which is a proprietary food," it said.

ITC said food regulator FSSAI has, in an order dated October 19, 2015, clarified to the Commissioner of Food Safety, Bihar that "instant noodles cannot be tested against the parameters prescribed for dried noodles but have to be tested against the standards stipulated for instant noodles."
