Food adulteration also known as food fraud is a rising issue in the food industry.
Whether adulterated, contaminated or inaccurately labelled, deliberately or accidentally, many food products are not what they claim to be, putting the entire industry’s credibility at stake. Food Fraud is particularly prevalent in various products such as coffee, chia, herbs and spices, to name a few.
Also Tea and Matcha are some of the most adulterated foods in the world. Taiyo as a Japanese company has a very strict quality control, controls the tea leaves, the pesticides use and also the full production process of its green tea extract with many quality steps. Regarding Matcha, Taiyo works with a renowned Japanese partner to ensure that its product is authentic, of guaranteed quality and derived from a strictly monitored cultivation and production process. Therefore, Taiyo can guarantee that all products are 100 % pure and free from any adulteration.
