The aim of the study is to determine the adulterants in edible oil using Chromatography and authenticate the output using Statistical methods. Sattva in Sanskrit means Purity that is food should be healthy and unadulterated so as to strengthen the equilibrium of our human system. On consuming adulterated food it affects the digestive system, leads to metabolic disorders like diabetes, cardiac problems, also affects the human Mind and in turn the society.

Edible oil is a source of fat that is consumed in large quantities across the world. In the proposed study, Sunflower oil adulteration with other cheaper oils detection using chromatography is identified. Using Principal component analysis the chromatographic results are authenticated.
