Whiskey

Whiskey (whiskey or whiskey) is a type of liquor that is extracted from fermented grain pulp. A wide variety of beverages are made from different grains such as barley, malt barley, rye, malt rye, and wheat, corn (corn). Whiskeys are processed into wooden barrels made of oak wood. But American corn whiskey is not processed this way.

Whiskey is a worldwide beverage that is produced in native places based on their availability and is a strictly regulated energy drink with different varieties. By combining different varieties of grain malt and with the filtering method the percentages of alcohol can be controlled. For corn malt, 80% alcohol can be given and for other grain malts, 90% alcohol can be given. Before adding water, the unique aroma can be added to make it pure whiskey or vodka(whiskey with flavors). 


Whiskey derives 60% of its flavor from the way it is processed. Bourbon whiskey is an example of well-brewed whiskey packed in oak barrels.

Aging of Whisky

Whiskies do not mature in the bottle, only in the cask, so the "age" of a whisky is only the time between distillation and bottling. This reflects how much the cask has interacted with the whisky, changing its chemical makeup and taste. Whiskies that have been bottled for many years may have a rarity value, but are not "older" and not necessarily "better" than a more recent whisky that matured in wood for a similar time. 

Scotch

Whisky made in Scotland is known as Scotch whisky, or simply as "Scotch" (especially in North America).

Groundnut is one of the key ingredients in the diet of South Indians. Groundnut is used in a wide variety of foods and recipes. But most people do not know its medicinal properties.

In the field where groundnut is cultivated in our country, there will not be so many rats till the fruiting season. However, if the fruit is started on the groundnut plant, you could have seen that the rats are overgrown. Thus increasing the nuisance of rats in the field. This is because of the "folic acid" in groundnuts, which are high in groundnuts, which helps in reproduction.

Business tricks companies do without public aware

Supermarket and Online Purchase

Nowadays many people do not even have time to sit and eat in urban areas. If we ask them, they will say in one word that they are busy. Many online marketing companies have sprung up to alleviate the burdensome homework of people who do not have time. Examples are all major supermarket companies. All of these companies are using people's timelessness as their investment.

Rice, pulses, vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, etc. are all ordered online and received on time. Well, this is a good thing. Are you asking something wrong with it?

It is questionable whether all the vegetables, fruits, and meat bought online or purchased at supermarkets are really quality.

Vegetables and fruits available in online markets are three times more harmful for our health than those available in normal markets. These vegetables and fruits are stored in godown before baking. Thus a chemical is sprayed to protect them from cockroaches and rats when stored in the godowns. It is to keep the vegetables shiny. Not only that but also glycerin, ascorbic acid, etc. are used to prevent spoilage of vegetables.


It is then stored in boxes and covers and delivered. Some people order chopped vegetables and fruits without even having time to cut them. Fruits like pomegranate and pineapple are ordered as peeled. If asked, they will say busy.


Chopped vegetables and peeled fruits cause high levels of nutrient loss. Also sold at a higher price.

Actually, people buy vegetables online for 80 rupees which the actual price is 50Rs, and fruits for 150 rupees which actual cost is 80Rs, and post a comment on social media that it is clean and hygienic food (mixed with poison actually). But, they bargain with the street vegetable stroller for just around 5Rs. Definitely, they pay the actual cost that is displayed online. They just look outside the appearance of vegetables, not the healthy ones.

If this is the situation with vegetables, then think about what all are the process followed for meat and fish sold online.

Meat and fish bought at the supermarket and online look very nice, clean and the meat is just as red as it is currently sliced and packed. Even though the meat is packed several days before, the red color of the meat does not change.


Behind this red color meat. there is the biggest business tactic involved that we don’t know.

Usually, before packing the meat for the supermarket and online market, the meat is always kept in carbon monoxide (smoke) for some time, to make it look fresh and with a reddish tinge.

Carbon monoxide is a highly toxic smoke emitted from a vehicle.

Usually, freshly chopped meat will change from red to brown after few hours, indicating that the meat is spoiled. To avoid this, the meat can be smoked with carbon monoxide and then packed. Along with Carbon Monoxide, the meat is packed with artificially prepared propyl halide gas to prevent the meat from spoiling. This is called modified atmosphere packaging.

This meat is processed by carbon monoxide smoke and its red color does not fade for up to a year. Despite the protests of many consumer organizations, the meat packaging company packs with carbon monoxide smoke. This is what people in the city buy and eat with pride today. Thus cancer is more likely to occur.

Many business tactics that are harmful to health like this are handled without the knowledge of the public. People should have aware of this. Avoid buying vegetables and meat as much as possible online and in supermarkets.

Balm

In all such painkillers or balm, the size is small on the inside. It looks outside like a big bottle, inside-bottle the shape look like U. Though it may seem like a small thing, it is a brilliant idea to increase the profitability of the company on a large scale.

Toothpaste

No toothpaste will make your teeth too white. Will remove a little of the stains on top of it. Tea drinkers for 10 to 15 years will only be completely healed if they go to the doctor and clean up. Toothpaste like this will only increase your tooth decay. 

Reducing quantity:

Many companies accept to sell the product at the same price eventhough there is inflation, but instead reduce the weight. For example, 10.5 ounces 297.67 grams reduced to 10 ounces 283.5 grams. Difference 14. 1 g. Most people do not know this. "It's not very expensive," they said. This minimum weight will provide major profit to the companies. 

Some companies announcing the new product in a new format with reduced weight. It makes no difference what customers see outside.

Phone:

Which brand would you buy if you were thinking of buying a new handset? 90% of us buy something below.


Oppo

One plus

Vivo

Real me


The connection between all of these? All of these are manufactured by the only Chinese company, BBK Electronics. All of the above are handsets made by BBK subsidiaries i.e. subsideries.


The name of this tactic is Multi-brand strategy. The quality and price of the goods will vary. Real me for low price. One plus for a higher price. We will buy something anyway. Not many people know that everything belongs to the same company.
