The 'bhog' or 'prasad' (offering) distributed at the famous Khajrana Ganesh temple here has received 'Blissful Hygiene Offering to God' (BHOG) certification by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). The certification aims to ensure that prasad distributed by temples is safe for consumption.
Recently the FSSAI conducted a detailed audit of the prasad and other food items served to devotees at the Khajrana temple, Indore's Chief Food Safety Officer Manish Swami said on Thursday.
They were found to be as per the authority's food safety and hygiene parameters, he said.
In June this year, the prasad served at Ujjain's Mahakaleshwar temple, one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in the country, received the BHOG certification.
