Vet Varsity is going to organize Free Milk Adulteration Testing camp on 25-26 Nov. on National Milk Day

November 23

College of Dairy Science and Technology (CODST), Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU) is organizing “Milk Adulteration Testing Camp” on 25 & 26 November, 2021 on occasion of National Milk Day. This day is dedicated to honor 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 in the dairy world. The main objective of celebration of National Milk Day is to provide information about the need and importance of milk in human being's life. It is the first food that child consumes after birth and is perhaps the food consumed throughout life. Milk is part of routine diet so it’s very important to consume pure milk. The adulteration of milk by unscrupulous persons 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 and formalin etc. Many of these adulterants are harmful to the body, so to create awareness among the people, Milk Adulteration Testing Camp is being organized.  Consumers can bring a minimum of 100 ml chilled raw milk samples in clean and dry glass/plastic bottles to CODST between 9 am to 5 pm on above said dates. The milk sample bottles should be labelled with the name and contact number of the person. The milk samples will be analyzed at the college and milk quality results will be conveyed through WhatsApp or text messages on the following day.

Dr Inderjeet Singh, Vice-Chancellor GADVASU delightedly said that College of Dairy Science & Technology took a lead in organizing Milk adulteration testing camp. Focus is to create the awareness among consumers.

Dr Ramneek, Dean, College of Dairy Science & Technology, GADVASU  appreciated the efforts of Dr. Inderpreet Kaur, Dr. Veena N. and Dr. Nitika Goel who took this initiative to generate awareness among masses about the importance of quality and safety of milk.
