How to identify adulterated milk?
- Sniff it to identify adulterated milk. If the milk is odor or taste bad, it is adulterated one. You can easily find out it is synthetic milk, as it smells and tastes bad.
- Taste it to find out it is sweet or not. We all know that pure milk is naturally sweet. If the milk you have kept in the fridge tastes sour or bitter, t is adulterated or stale.
- Place a drop of milk on any surface to find out it is pure or not. If the milk dropped at the floor leaves a trail behind, it means that the milk is not pure.
- Take 5 ml of milk in a small pot and add two tablespoons of salt into it. If the mixture is turned into blue, the milk is adulterated.
- Mix a half tablespoon of soyabean powder and milk together. Shake this mixture well. Dip litmus paper into the mixture for 30 seconds. If the color is changed from red to blue, the milk has urea.
