Milk

Though water remains the most common milk adulterant, increasingly detergent, caustic soda, glucose, white paint and refined oil are being used to adulterate milk. Water thins the milk but other adulterants make it appear thick. Adulterants like salt, detergents and glucose add to the thickness and viscosity of the diluted milk while starch prevents its curdling. So non-water adulterants make it difficult for a consumer to suspect that the milk is diluted or adulterated.

On top of this the milk in India is not tested for urea, pesticide etc.

Why is fssai allowing all this. Why isnt it mandatory for every company to get their packaged milk tested every quarter at a lab for urea, pesticide and other dangerous compounds.

Pls advise. more

As per the reports of FSSAI, MILK SAMPLES ARE TESTED IN GOVT FOOD TESTING LABS, Periodically. more  
i doubt more  
You forgot antibiotics are used to prevent Curdling more  
Milk delivered by vendors at door steps is generally adulterated with such substances endangering consumers' lives. Never came across of any reports regarding such adulteration in packaged milk of licensed dairies though there were reports of dirtiness at such places. more  
As per my knowledge, now a days various instruments are available to check milk quality & contents. In last 5-6 years there had been flow of multi purpose instruments from developed countries to undertake various tests. It's true, facilities are only available at Common Facility Center established under plan scheme with the support of Food precessing industries Ministry. It may be an appropriate proposition to creat such facilities in market centers as milk is highly consumeable items by all segments of consumers thus it will benefit a large no. of people in society. more  
Milk Quality points at common places should be installed so that public can decide and hit back. ?
So many Wines Shops, but very very few Milk Shops.! more
