RTI Inquiry Reveals That Patanjali’s Amla Juice And Shivlingi Beej Failed Quality Test

Published on 1 June, 2017 at 5:44 pm By

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev seems to be in troubled waters yet again, and this time it is for the substandard quality of Patanjali products. An RTI query revealed that the company’s popular Divya Amla juice and fertility drug Shivlingi Beej had failed the quality test conducted by Haridwar’s Ayurveda and Unani Office.

Among 82 Samples of Ayurveda products collected between 2013 and 2016, nearly 40% products failed to meet a certain level of quality. The report revealed that the pH value of Patanjali’s Divya Amla juice was below the prescribed limit and Shivlingi Beej contains 31.68% of foreign matter.

Less than prescribed pH level cause acidity and other health complications. Ramdev’s associate and Patanjali’s managing director, Acharya Balkrishna, called it an attempt to tarnish the image of the company. He claims that Shivlingi Beej is a “natural seed” and cannot be adulterated.



 

The quality test failure was a result of suspended sales of a batch of Patanjali Ayurveda’s amla juice by armed forces’ Canteen Stores Department after it “failed” to clear a laboratory test at West Bengal Public Health Laboratory.

Interestingly, Ramdev’s Patanjali is planning to enter the restaurant business to crush the dominance of the likes of McDonald’s, KFC and Subway.  The turnover of the company was Rs.10,561 crore in the previous fiscal year which the yoga guru intends to double.
