Know Which Five Foods to Avoid When Heading for an Interview

When students head for a campus interview or job placement, they are often made to go through drug tests to ensure they have not consumed any kind of alcohol or drugs, even the slightest percentage can result in the drug test to be positive and can lead to disqualification whether it’s taking admission in a university or getting recruited in a multinational firm.

The majority of students don’t take the drug test seriously and land up getting disqualified at the last moment despite not consuming alcohol or drugs. You must be wondering what can cause a false positive on a drug test. It is strange but true. Many students are unaware of the fact that some foods can trigger a false positive on a drug test. In this article, we are going to tell students which are the foods they must avoid while heading for a job interview or campus interview. Especially when they know they need to get a drug test done.

Foods That Can Cause a False Positive on a Drug Test

  • Poppy Seeds- Poppy seeds are used to prepare traditional curries in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The U.S. government outright discourages the consumption of poppy seeds before a student appears for a drug test. This is because poppy seeds are obtained from the opium poppy and contain traces of morphine and codeine which is also used to make heroin. Therefore it is advised that students do not consume anything that contains even sprinkles of poppy speeds if they are heading for a drug test.


  • Pizza- Pizza is among the list of favourite foods for many students. However, consumption of Pizza before a drug test is a strict no, especially for students. It is observed that students are showing symptoms of pizza addiction. In case you are wondering what can cause a false positive on a drug test after having a slice or two of pizza? Here’s your answer. The dough of pizza contains yeast. It ferments sugar into alcohol that causes the dough to rise. Even though the percentage of alcohol in a whole pizza might not make you feel dizzy but it can surely be the reason for a false positive on a drug test. Hence avoiding pizza is a safer option.


  • Coca Tea- Many students in the US are fond of Coca Tea. It is a drink that is made from the same coca leaves from which heroin is made. It is otherwise harmless but some researchers say that the traces of the tea stays in the body for approximately 36 hours and it can also be the reason for a false positive on a drug test. Therefore students who cherish Coca Tea are advised to stay away from it at least for a week before appearing for the drug test.


Therefore it can be said that if students are planning to head for a drug test which is a mandate for cracking a particular job interview or getting admission in a specific college they should not just keep away from any kind of illicit drugs and alcohol including cigarettes but they also need to keep poppy seeds, cocoa tree, and pizzas at arm’s length if they want to qualify in the test.
