Ludhiana, November 25

A milk adulteration testing camp to mark National Milk Day is being organised by the College of Dairy Science and Technology (CODST), Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU), from November 25 to 26.

The day is dedicated to honour Dr Verghese Kurien, who is considered to be the father of India’s White Revolution. The day marks his birth anniversary and is a tribute for his contribution to the dairy sector.

The objective of the celebration of National Milk Day is to provide information about the need and importance of milk in people’s life. It is the first food that a child consumes after birth and is perhaps the food that is consumed throughout life. It is part of the routine diet, hence, its important to consume pure milk.

Adulteration of milk is usually done for increasing the quantity of milk, extending shelf life, maintaining SNF and avoiding detection of sour milk. Milk composition is manipulated by using water, glucose, sugar, starch, wheat flour, common salt, baking soda, washing soda, urea, hydrogen peroxide, formalin, etc.

Consumers can bring a minimum of 100 ml chilled raw milk samples in clean and dry glass/plastic bottles to the CODST between 9 am to 5 pm during the camp. The milk sample bottles should be labelled with the name and contact number of the person. The samples will be analysed at the college and milk quality results will be conveyed through WhatsApp or SMS. — TNS
