Cite article:- Shekhar Chandra, Kumar* Sunil (2023). QUALITY OF BUFFALO MILK PROCURED FROM MILK VENDERS – A CASE STUDY. Indian Journal of Animal Research. 46(3): 223 - 225. doi: .
A total of 120 buffalo milk samples were collected from Faizabad and Sultanpur districts of Poorvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh. These samples were analyzed for different physico-chemical parameters and various types of adulterants. Out of these, only 20 samples from the Milkipur fulfill the requirements of PFA Standards, whereas, 100 samples from other regions were found unsatisfactory. Among all samples, 50.83% samples were found adulterated with starch, formalin, sucrose or sodium bicarbonate but no sample was found adulterated with urea.
