Beware of Fake Sweets on Raksha Bandhan! Identify it Like This


The festival of Raksha Bandhan has arrived. Raksha Bandhan, a symbol of brother-sister love, will be celebrated on Sunday, 22 August this year. The purchase of sweets increases significantly on Raksha Bandhan. But do you know that the business of fake sweets or fake mawa is also fast during the festive season?

Therefore, it becomes essential to show understanding while buying them. Let us tell you how you can find out the difference between real and fake.

How to Identify Fake Sweets

1. Rub a small piece of khoya on the thumb of the hand for a while. If the smell of ghee present in it remains on the thumb for a long time, then understand that the mawa is pure.


2. Make a ball of mawa on the palm and keep rotating it between both palms for a long time. If these bullets start bursting, then understand that Mawa is fake or adulterated.

3. Put about 3 grams of khoya in 5 ml of hot water. After cooling down for a while, add iodine solution to it. After this, you will see that the colour of fake khoya will gradually turn blue.

4. If you want, you can test the real and fake by eating mawa. If there is a feeling of stickiness in the mawa, then understand that it has gone wrong. When you eat real mawa, it will taste like raw milk.


5. If it breaks into small pieces after mixing mawa in water, it is a sign of its spoilage. Avoid buying mawa, which is more than two days old. Eating it can spoil your health.

6. If you are making Mawa sweets at home, buy cooked Mawa instead of raw Mawa. The taste of sweets made from this will also be better, and there is less chance of it spoiling quickly.

Doctors say that eating sweets made from fake dry fruits can cause food poisoning, vomiting, stomach pain.


Sweets made from fake mawa can also become a significant threat to the kidney and liver.

Fake mawa also obstructs your digestive system, which can lead to other stomach related diseases.
