Essential part of diet, Milk is most adulterated food commodity

Milk, which is considered an essential part of our daily diet, is the most adulterated food commodity. Milk is adulterated by adding water, removing cream, adding artificial colouring agents and preservatives such as formaldehyde, boric cids and other acids.

Milk adulterants can also have hazardous health effects/impact on unsuspecting consumers as some of the aforementioned detergents can cause food poisoning and other gastrointestinal complications.

Other chemicals that are used such as hydrogen peroxide and formalin to prolong shelf life in milk products can be very harmful to health too.
