If on Pesah some hametz got mixed into food, the hametz is not nullified, even if there is more than a 60:1 ratio of Pesach food to the hametz. However if the mixture occurred before Pesah, and there was more than a 60:1 ratio of Pesah food to hametz, the hametz is batel and the food may therefore be eaten on Pesah. If one only found out about the mixture on Pesah or even if he intentionally mixed in the hametz before Pesah, the hametz is still batel and the food is okay for Pesah. However, if the hametz is the only base ingredient and it gives flavor to the food it is proper to be strict and to refrain from consuming it on Pesah.
