Adulteration in Desi Ghee


Dear sir, I'm a resident of Chandigarh and a civilian defence employee (DRDO Scientist) & a user of CSD canteen facility. In my observations almost every kinds of Deshi Ghee brand including Milkfood, Sampriti, Verka, Govardhan, Anik, etc. are all having adulterations, either that is available in local market or in CSD Canteen of Army. Anybody can simply test the quality of Desi Ghee based on its melting point (28 to 44 deg C). Below 28 deg C, it should be in solid form. But I've observed that most of the brands of Deshi Ghee are found liquid form during winter season or even inside a refrigerator, which is surprising. Secondly, once Ghee is melting out near 28 deg C, there should be no solid mass floating inside above that temperature. Because every material has a single characteristic melting point, if there are masses of two or more melting temperatures, there is certainly two or more than two materials mixed.
In Cow Ghee like Govardhan I've observed that there is mixing of Dalda & a yellow material like turmeric. Through my past observations I've literally left using the Desi Ghee.
But a Nation wide awareness & and strict action plan against all such Desi Ghee Company has become a dire need of time. more

We get ourselves purified by bathing in the dirty Ganga. Earlier businessmen use to tell proudly that profit making is not our objective. Today all corporates say our objectives are - maximise the bottom line. Obviously, there will be no quality in any product or services. Thanks more  
First of all, those are not Desi Ghee..those are called butter oil. Secondly, rather leaving the usage its advisable to find the best source and start using the real Desi Ghee. Rest all the facts are true.. more  
Everyone accepted that the adulteration is everywhere. It is also not advisable to consume the adulterated food. It is also not possible to totally avoiding the packed foods. What is the solution? The government agencies with limited resources and infrastructure are not able to control. Only thing we can do is to help the agencies by giving information about adulteration. It is possible that adulteration may be taking place in the vicinity only but we are not pay attention. let us be more vigilant and give such information to the concerned authorities without giving our identity. It is requested that govt may provide complaint boxes (May be a toll free number) in all the markets and accept the complaints without asking for identity. And finally the culprits may be punished instantly. If there is court case there need to be time limit to decide the case. They must not be allowed to avail the weakness in the system. more
