Don't eat Kurkure because it contains high amount of Plastic.
If you don't believe burn Kurkure and you can see Plastic melting.!
Viral Message Verification – This message has been long running in the social media and now on whatsapp as well claiming that Kurkure contains plastic ingredient and is dangerous for health. It also demonstrated on sme video when you burn Kurkure you can feel you are burning Plastic.
Believe me if Kurkure had contained even a single bit of plastic contents, it must have been already banned across the world.
Kurkure is in the market since 1999.
Before we explain further watch the video below of the Kurkure, how it is manufactured in a manufacturing plant.
Even the above video which shows the burning of the Kurkure product, the voice can be heard of the plastic smell while burning. In fact the smell is due to the burning of the Carbon present in the food.In fact most of the products which has salt would burn in the same way.
Kurkure is a common product of made out of edibles like rice meal, corn meal, gram meal, salt, spices, seasonings, etc., and is not dangerous for health. These are in fact the common ingredients in Indian kitchens as well.
Even the company states the same what Kurkure do not contains plastic.
However, the story is a hoax. Kurkure is an evening snack that is manufactured using edible ingredients like rice meal, corn meal, gram meal, salt, spices, seasonings, etc., and is not dangerous for health. These are in fact the common ingredients in Indian kitchens as well.
Kurkure does melt when you burn it, but again most of the salty snacks do the same. It burns because it contains carbohydrates. The plastic like substance that you see in kurkure is nothing but starch. The shiny plastic like look of kurkure is that of dried starch, which is not dangerous for health. It is the same thing that you can see over starched cotton shirts, or on rice cookers after the water dries on the side of the vessel. Also, there is no mention of such story in times of India.
Kurkure does not contain plastic; the company officials explained the same. They believe that the hoax message should have been started by someone who does not like the brand.
Many people across the world believe that it contains plastic, even I believed before writing this article that Kurkure contains no plastic at all.
Kurkure is not banned in US or any other country.
