Mangoes ripened with calcium carbide can trigger gastritis, ulcer and cancer.


A food safety official complained of headache and giddiness after spending time inside a warehouse from where 10kg of calcium carbide was seized during the raid.

Regular consumption of mangoes ripened using calcium carbide can trigger gastritis, ulcer, neurological disorders and cancer.

With the regulation of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on calcium carbide, more and more calcium carbide traders turn to looking for ethylene ripener to substitute part of calcium carbide, in use of fruits ripening, especially for mangoes, which is the largest product of fruits in India.

As the traces of arsenic and phosphorus are toxic to human health, the early symptoms of arsenic or phosphorus poisoning include vomiting, diarrhoea with or without blood, burning sensation of the chest and abdomen, thirst, weakness, difficulty in swallowing, irritation or burning in the eyes and skin, permanent eye damage, ulcers on the skin, irritation in the mouth, nose and throat.

On the contrast, ethylene gas is only dangerous if in a more than 33% concentration, which never exist in actual use.
