Health, Wealth & Rasgullas!

A few years back a study conducted by Consumer Voice, a NGO supported by the ministry of Consumer Affairs, found Canned Rasgullas to be a Health Hazard. Times of India ran an article stating “If you think canned Rasgullas are a better option than khoya-based sweets this Diwali, think again.” (http://goo.gl/sieNZZ)Rasgulla
