Abstract:

India is the world’s largest country with 164 million tons of milk production in year of 2016-17. As the population increase, the consumption of milk and milk product is also increased. Today India facing major problem in field of dairy sector is adulteration malpractice of milk and milk products. Common milk adulterants like nitrate, sodium chloride, formalin, urea, starch etc. have been mixed with milk for cost cutting purpose. Detection of milk adulterant at entry level is very huge challenge. Traditional instrumental based technique is available to detect the milk adulterant but it is costly and time consuming. In this article we have developed very easy to handle, cheap, very sensitive, portable, accurate, rapid, reliable and it does not require any type of instrument and expert personnel to handle instrument. This technique enables the instant detection of different adulterant from the group of sodium chloride, pond water and formalin. Presence of sodium chloride, pond water and formalin can be confirm by changing color from radish maroon to yellow, white to blue and white to purple respectively. We have developed vial based detection method for the rapid detection of different adulterants in milk sample.
