FSSAI reveals about Rampant Adulteration of Milk in India

The apex authoritative and supervisory body for Food Safety & hygiene, FSSAI has always provided necessary legal as well as educational support for all the FBOs across India. Recently, it has executed several measures to induce proper compliance mechanism in the food industry.


Notably, it’s recent decision to conduct a nationwide food safety audit is sure to stir up awareness among the food businesses towards the maintenance of food & health safety in the food industry and seriousness towards FSSAI registration & FSSAI license.


No doubt, FSSAI is rigorously scrutinizing the food industry, due to which striking insights with respect to food license and other compliance are coming to the notice of the general public.

In this context, it has been revealed that over 68% of the milk & milk products that are sold across the country do not meet the standards laid down by FSSAI.


The bon vivant gastronomes Rocky & Mayur were relishing the world-famous Daulat ki Chaat in the streets of Chandni Chowk on one of their food-trips. When they came across this news, they were really awestricken. Rocky inquired-


#1. What kind of loop-holes are there in the milk processing industry?

Mayur: Though there are many inadequacies in the milk processing industry, the most common and contemptuous malice is of adulteration.


#2. What kinds of adulterants are commonly found in milk?

Mayur: Animal Welfare Board of India has recently conducted a study, according to which the most common adulterants found in milk are-

  • Detergents,
  • caustic soda,
  • Glucose,
  • White paint and
  • Refined oil.


This news was appalling enough to incite Rocky’s awe. Holding his plate loosely, he asked-


#3. How much is the extent of adulteration in milk?

Mayur: As per the report of the Ministry of Science & Technology, about 89.2% of milk products are adulterated in one form or the other.


#4. Which are other sorts of adulterants found in milk?

Mayur: Other types of contaminants found in milk include-

  • urea,
  • starch,
  • glucose and
  • formalin.

These are mainly added to deliberately adulterate milk for providing thickness and consistency and preserve the milk for a longer duration.


#5. How much is the seriousness of milk producers towards FSSAI registration?

Mayur: The current scenario is such that about 68.7% of milk and milk products sold throughout the country are not as per the benchmarks laid down by FSSAI. This clearly suggests the level of consciousness among milk producers towards FSSAI registration and FSSAI license.


Rocky: Yeah! Certainly…. The scenario is really pathetic and this needs to be addressed.

He then gives a pale look to his mouth-watering Daulat ki Chaat.


Mayur: Don’t fret buddy! Our most favorite delectable dessert  Daulat ki Chaat is damn safe since it is the quality product of a well-known establishment that possesses the FSSAI registration.
