  • Under PFA Section 44AA, the use of calcium carbide for artificial ripening of mangoes, apple, plum, banana is prohibited and can attract both imprisonment and fine.
  • Calcium carbide powder is usually kept wrapped in paper between the fruits e.g. unripe mangoes) in a basket or box.
  • Once the basket of mango is closed from the top, calcium carbide absorbs moisture and produces acetylene gas, which accelerates the ripening process of fruits.
  • The health hazards are related to the gastrointestinal tract, kidney, heart, liver and brain and in the long run, cancer.
  • One kg of calcium carbide is sufficient to ripe about 10 tons of fruit.
  • The fruit that has been artificially ripened with calcium carbide will be less tasty, have different aroma, will be uniform in color, have a shorter shelf-life and be overtly soft. There may be multicolored (red, yellow, green) patches on the skin of the mango.
  • Never eat off-season fruits, especially before time.
  • Rinse all fruits in running tap water for few minutes before use.
