English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. adulteration

    Alloy may be either some admixture of baser with precious metal, as for giving hardness to coin or the like, or it may be a compound or mixture of two or more metals. Adulteration, debasement, and deterioration are always used in the bad sense; admixture is neutral, and may be good or bad; alloy is commonly good in the literal sense. An excess of alloy virtually amounts to adulteration; but adulteration is now mostly restricted to articles used for food, drink, medicine, and kindred uses. In the figurative sense, as applied to character, etc., alloy is unfavorable, because there the only standard is perfection.

    Synonyms:
    admixture, alloy, debasement, deterioration

How to use adulteration in a sentence?

  1. Melinda Wilkins:

    So this accusation of finding human DNA in there, you can detect a very small amount, but they're not quantifying the amount. It could be just a few cells versus a percentage content. the whole issue of food adulteration is starting to become a really hot area right now, and I think a lot of people became aware of the issue in meat fairly recently.

  2. Melinda Wilkins:

    A lot of times, food adulteration issues are not a food safety concern necessarily, but still it's disturbing to think that you might be eating something that you're not aware of, so I think companies will want to be very careful about how they label, and they may want to be doing more testing of their suppliers.
