Milkfed to use new technology against milk adulteration


The Punjab State Cooperative Milk Producers Federation Limited popularly known as MILKFED Punjab has obtained a strip-based technology developed by the National Diary Research Institute (NDRI) for rapid detection of adulteration in milk.


The technology will help in detecting adulterants, such as sucrose, glucose, hydrogen peroxide, neutralizer, detergents, malto dextrine and urea in milk. These strips would be made available at all levels to check the milk adulteration.


According to Milkfed, the association with farmers is not limited to procuring, processing and marketing of milk and milk products but also running programmes to improve cattle breed, development of fodder seed and extending technical inputs and support.
