Food is essential for life. It should be pure, nutritious and free from any type of adulteration for proper maintenance of human health. Despite of improvement in production, processing and packaging, more poisons seem to be entering our food chain. For example Indian spices or 'masalas' add taste and flavour to food and also help in digestion. Some spices like turmeric have an antiseptic effect on the body. But what is most important is the quality of these ingredients. Every consumer wants to get maximum quantity of a commodity for as low a price as possible. This attitude of the consumer being coupled with the intention of the traders to increase the margin of profit, where the quality of the commodity gets reduced through addition of a baser substance and / or removal of vital elements also commonly known as food adulteration.

The manual deals in detail about the location, layout, structure, physical facilities like hand wash, water supply, storage, lighting and ventilation etc required for the food service establishments.
Background of the Study
Food is the primary necessity in the world. It is usually of plant and animal in origin which is consist and contains essential nutrients ingested and assimilated by an organism to produce energy, stimulate growth, and maintain life such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals.
Historically, food is secured through hunting and agriculture like farming and animal raising. By that time, food is not yet a trend in the worlds industries.
Nowadays, food industry supplies the world populations consumed food energy. The industry is supported by intensive farming and industrial agriculture to continually supply the global demand for food. The emergence of food production industry has been a large break for companies and entrepreneurs to grab the opportunity of global need…...

Surface Sanitation Verification

...SURFACE SANITATION VERIFICATION PURPOSE: The primary purpose of this information paper is to provide guidance on the use and implementation of the Charm PocketSwab( for surface sanitation verification in commissaries located throughout EUCOM. BACKGROUND: ATP (adenosine triphosphate) bioluminescence has been used in the food industry for over 10 years to quickly assess and monitor microbial contamination on surfaces. ATP is an excellent means of identifying “hot spots” or areas with organic material that could possibly support and accelerate microbial growth. The technology of ATP bioluminescence for hygiene monitoring has become increasingly useful because of it real-time capabilities, ease of use and affordability. It cannot replace microbiological testing but it is easier, faster and the results indicate cleanliness, (defined as the absence of organic material), rather than counting colony forming units of microorganisms. SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLE: It is important to understand the basic principles of ATP bioluminescence. ATP is a molecule that is essential and common to all plant, animal and microbial cells. This compound combines and reacts with an enzyme (luciferase) resulting in the release of light. The light emitted is measured by using the Charm LUM-T. This output of light is proportional to the amount of ATP present on a given surface. The measurement of biological contamination is approximated by determining the amount of ATP contained within or on the......

Food Sanitation

...Food sanitation is the practice of following certain rules and procedures to prevent the contamination of food, keeping it safe to eat. Many jurisdictions around the world have specificfood sanitation laws, along with lists of regulations created by public health agencies. The practice of food sanitation is recommended at every step of the supply chain within the food industry, from workers in crop fields to waiters at restaurants. The term "food sanitation" typically refers to rules and procedures within the food industry, whether during production, packaging, transporting or serving. At the consumer level, such as in a home kitchen, practices designed to ensure that food is uncontaminated and safe to eat are often referred to using the term "food hygiene." 1 Food Safety Issues From the moment that food is produced or harvested to the time that it is eaten, it is vulnerable to contamination from bacteria and other substances that could be harmful. The key to food sanitation is keeping food safe and clean, with all of its handlers complying with the necessary rules and recommendations. These rules concern things such as safe holding temperatures for the food; safe cooking temperatures; sterilization of cutting boards and other implements; proper attire for handlers, such as gloves and breathing masks; and times or dates by which the food should be eaten, served or sold.

Proper Sanitation

...Proper Sanitation Practices Sanitation is a set of plans and practices designed to protect the public health through disease and infection prevention and control. Most states have their own set of regulations related to sanitation, but there are many things that are just standard. Proper sanitation involves: The use of clean tools and implements. Keeping the work area clean. Having good personal hygiene in order to prevent being a public health risk. Mindfulness of communicable diseases, and preventing their transmission. Mindfulness of allergies and other non communicable conditions and diseases, and preventing their exacerbation. Having a good knowledge of your craft and profession so that you are not the cause of health problems, or can help others to solve theirs. ...and finally, though people don't often think of this as part of sanitation, serving and informing the community. Though many of the methods we will deal with in this section are common knowledge in certain families and communities, we will go into them anyway. There are special concerns that have to do with the situation and technique that some state rules do not cover because they were designed for a salon situation. The methods of sanitation for a hair care or salon situation are similar to those in a hospital situation. Most US and European state laws require the use of some toxic or environmentally unfriendly chemicals to accomplish sanitation. If you are studying for a state exam,......

Roman Sanitation

...all the marvelous feats in Roman architecture, few rival the societal contributions of the Cloaca Maxima and the system of Aqueducts. Sanitation in early Roman society was far from adequate. With the lack of any significant drainage system, human and animal waste alike covered the streets and flooding among low lying areas of the city was substantial . The issue of water was also prevalent. The city suffered from a lack of fresh water flow that not only led to an extreme shortage of drinkable water, but also to a stagnation of the city’s waste . Rome was in desperate need of a system that both provided water free from pollution for consumption and also supplied a constant flow to the various public baths, toilets, fountains, and private households. The Great Greek historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus stated in his collection “Roman Antiquities” that “The extraordinary greatness of the Roman Empire manifests itself above all in three things: the aqueducts, the paved roads, and the construction of the drains .” Dionysius’ statement certainly rang true. The commissioning of the roman aqueducts as well as the construction and expansion of the Cloaca Maxima were vital to the improved sanitation in Rome. To understand how important these two architectural feats were to the Roman people, it is necessary to first understand the state of Roman sanitation before major expansions to the aqueducts and sewage system. Most Romans relied heavily on limited local sources like springs and......

The term may also be used to refer specifically to a flush toilet. The development of the flush toilet revolutionized human sanitation, and contributed a number of interesting developments to plumbing and architecture as structures began to be built to accommodate such toilets. Water closets come in various shapes, designs, and colors. The device is designed to receive human waste and dispose of the waste properly in a sanitary sewer system.  Most  water  closets  mount  on  the  floor,  but there are models that are wall hung. Modem water closets have various design features which create different flushing actions. TYPES: THE WATER CLOSETS ARE OF TWO TYPES: 1: Eastern Water Closet (Indian Water Closet) 2: Western Water Closet 1: Eastern Water Closet: This is most commonly used in eastern part from world from Pakistan, to Bangladesh including, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.

Field Sanitation

...The importance of Personal Hygiene and Field Sanitation Staying Clean and conducting personal hygiene is a vital role in a Soldiers life. Soldiers may spend weeks in an environment where proper facailities are not established and it is vital that one stay clean to prevent illness because military units are unable to carry out their missions when the soldiers are weakened by disease. In all US conflicts three times as many soldiers have been lost to illnesses/diseases rather than battle wounds. The most common injuries that soldiers may face are heat, cold injuries and communicable diseases. Personal Hygeine and cleanliness are an extremley important role in a soldiers life and it is important to know when one is getting sick and how to prevent it. Heat injury is one of the most common among soldiers who have lived in a temperate climate their entire life. When they go to another country to fight a war, most people arnt'e used to the dramatic changes in temperature and are unaware of the signs of heat injury. Hydration is key to staying in the battle when in extreme heat. Being thirsty is already an early sign of dehydration and should be avoided. Three meals a day should be standard to help replace the lost electrolytes and salts in the body. An example of extreme heat during a battle would be during the 1967 Arab Israeli battle where almost 20,000 egyptian soldiers died. It is crucial that a soldier pay attention to the signs of heat exhaustion, heat stroke and......

...CONCISE STRATEGY TO IMPROVE GHANA’S ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION PRESENTED BY: COSMAS LANKONO (B.Sc. CIVIL ENGINEERING) Tel: +233-26-294-8033 Email:c.lankono@gmail.com 1.0 PROBLEM STATEMENT (RECOGNITION) Most of our streets, market places and cab stations all have an unpleasant characteristic in common-choked open drains, garbage in plain sight, overflowing dustbins etc. Most Ghanaians especially those engaged in commercial activities on the street are not accustomed to the habit of keeping a tidy environment; walk into most cab stations to confirm. It is not uncommon to see trash being thrown out of cars in Ghana, the most common refuse constituent being the black polythene bags. The ugly truth of Ghana’s sanitation situation is that despite efforts by the government and NGOs towards creating a cleaner environment, the net effectiveness will always be infinitesimal since the main solution is to reach the mindset of the populace. Our very early Ghanaian civilization had a more domesticated lifestyle which did not include the use of less bio-degradable products such as plastics and polythene bags thus the adaptation to a modern lifestyle with regards to the management of modern waste products is clearly seen anytime we are on the streets. This concise strategy which blends entertainment with education is a sure way to effectively educate the populace with regards to a positive mindset tuning. For Ghana to attain full middle income status, the health......

Water Sanitation in India

...The Mark Volk Gazette Life just seems to feel like a crumbling foundation for the ‘not-so-average’ 18 year old, Karen Connors, in the book The Third Eye, by Lois Duncan. She’s the average girl next door, with blonde hair, brown eyes, and a slim figure...with some exceptions. Karen had never been very popular until she started dating the excessively popular athlete at her high school, Tim, and at a time when things should be going better than ever, with Karen meeting new friends and dating Tim, Karen still tosses and turns every night while trying to fall asleep. She has psychic visions where she sees the locations of children that have been kidnapped. In a sense, her ability is similar to that of a police dog’s; she usually needs to examine an item that belonged to a particular person, and will then have absolutely no difficulty finding them. Now, although this may seem like an amazing ability for someone to have, there are always two sides to every story. Fri Sat Sun 21 c/9 c 17 c/6 c 12 c/4 c Onlookers in Karen’s community seem as if they could care less about any so-called ‘psychic freak’ like Karen, and they don’t see her for who she really is. When Karen forgets about using her visions, everything changes. Through her boyfriend, Tim, Karen is actually starting to become socially accepted and starts going to parties and hangs out with popular people that she originally never......

What a Policy Maker Would Use to Adress the Problem of Poor Sanitation in Lungen Village of Chief Mpezeni's Area

...2000, the 189 member countries of the United Nations at that time adopted eight Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s). The eight goals are ambitious, and involve among others halving the number of people without clean water and sanitation by 2015. The challenges in meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) target for sanitation in Zambia by 2015 are many and include the large numbers of temporary latrines, low capacity for sanitation promotion in the country, weak policies and strategies for sanitation promotion, low support for sanitation in donor supported programs, social resistance to the use of the latrines, and lack of multi-sectoral partnerships for sanitation promotion. This paper endeavours to outline and discuss the sequential platform of activities in the policy process which the policy maker would use to address the problem of poor sanitation in Luangeni Village of Chief Mpezeni’s area. The essay also attempts to establish the seriousness of the problem of poor sanitation in the village by presenting statistical evidence. In order to fully comprehend and come up with solutions concerning the topic under discussion it is imperative that we understand some key concepts to be used in this essay, these include policy, policy makers and sanitation. Development policy making lies within the domain of the state. The word policy however has no single defination in literature, this is so because there are different points of view and diverging opinions and......

Sanitation Technolog

...INTRODUCTION TO SANITATION Sanitation is the hygienic means of promoting health through prevention of human contact with the hazards of wastes as well as the treatment and proper disposal of sewage or wastewater. Hazards can be either physical, microbiological, biological or chemical agents of disease. Wastes that can cause health problems include human and animal excreta, solid wastes, domestic wastewater (sewage, sullage, greywater), industrial wastes and agricultural wastes. Hygienic means of prevention can be by using engineering solutions (e.g., sanitary sewers, sewage treatment, surface runoff management, solid waste management, excreta management), simple technologies (e.g., pit latrines, dry toilets, urine-diverting dry toilets, septic tanks), or even simply by personal hygiene practices (e.g., hand washing with soap, behavior change). Providing sanitation to people requires a systems approach, rather than only focussing on the toilet or wastewater treatment plant itself. The experience of the user, waste collection methods, transportation or conveyance of waste, waste treatment, and reuse or disposal all need to be thoroughly considered. DEFINATION OF SANITATION The World Health Organization explains sanitation as follows: "Sanitation generally refers to the provision of facilities and services for the safe disposal of human urine and feces. The word 'sanitation' also refers to the maintenance of hygienic conditions, through services such as......
