Taking to the X (formerly Twitter) platform, Azhar Jafri (@zhr_jafri) shared the much talked about picture of a man sitting on a huge quantity of panner.

He shared the image with the caption, “Never buying non branded paneer after seeing this”. It can be seen how a man is sitting on a piece of wood kept on top of a stack of paneer. It looks like an attempt to drain and get rid of the excess water from the milk product. The step taken for this process to prepare paneer has not only left Netizens in utter shock, but people are now concerned about the maintenance of hygiene and quality checks of food made in such places. The picture is from Kanpur, according to a report by the Free Press Journal.

Ever since the disturbing picture of a man sitting on paneer was shared on the X (formerly Twitter) platform, it has clearly grabbed everyone’s attention.

No matter how much we enjoy eating all the spicy and unhealthy food and bahaar ka khaana, we are quite skeptical and concerned about the products and ingredients used in cooking dishes at our homes. From spices to vegetables to fish and meat, we try to buy fresh ones from the markets and shops. Many of us buy paneer from local shops that are usually not of any popular brands. After this viral image started appearing on social media, many became concerned if they should stick to buying non-branded paneer.

On the other hand, many Netizens are pointing out that there is no guarantee that well-known brands are not following such steps or not taking proper notice of hygiene checks and quality assurance and maintenance. Some people also pointed out the fact that many dhabas and food carts also use non-branded paneer.
