Abstract :

Milk in its natural form has high food value. It supplies nutrients like proteins, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals in moderate amounts in an easily digestible form. This study was conducted to evaluate different milk samples of different dairy farms and hotels located in Akola. The study was carried out keeping in view the recently emerging concern of adulteration of natural milk with various illegal substances to increase its marketability. The nature of adulterants generally encountered in milk and milk products are water samples. Results showed that pH of milk samples were alkaline and normal, formalin is absent in all samples, urea is present in some sample , starch powder were absent in all samples, neutralizers , shampoo and detergents were detected in some sample . Percentage of sodium chloride and skim milk powder were observed in samples. Some traces of ammonium sulfate and pond water were also recorded in some samples. Other adulterants like boric acid and nitrate were absent.
