(Mayukh Saha) The Environmental Working Group had recently commissioned an independent laboratory test. The test was conducted to detect the presence of the notorious weedkiller in hummus. The test results found glyphosate in over 80% of the non-organic hummus and other chickpea samples. Apart from the non-organic hummus weedkiller, several organic versions also revealed small amounts of weedkiller present in them.
