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
