This video by 101India reveals how there’s big scam of making vegetables fresh is going under our nose.

The video reveals how farmers use silicone sprays, coloured dyes and injections to make stale vegetables look fresh.

As a result of those added ingredients the vegetables look shiny on the cart of the sellers and you might be fooled in buying the stale products. In the video, a vegetable farmer casually talks how he uses sprays and injections to make the veggies look fresh. He also tells that he is not the only one, but other farmers also adopt the same means and this is because they are poor and have to sustain themselves and their families in times of rising inflation. If a vegetable does not look fresh then it barely gets sold in the market.
