New Delhi. Researchers of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) have done a unique research to test the purity of milk. IIT Madras has invented a three-dimensional (3-D) paper-based portable device that can detect adulteration in milk within 30 seconds. According to the researchers, ‘It can be tested at home and this device can detect urea, detergent, soap, starch, hydrogen peroxide, sodium-hydrogen-carbonate and salt and other adulterants in milk.’ Let us tell you that the cases of adulterated milk are increasing rapidly in the country. In such a situation, common consumers can get a lot of relief from this device.
Let us tell you that milk is considered one of the healthiest beverages for all sections of the country. Vitamins, calcium, protein, phosphorus and potassium are found in plenty in it. But, there are different types of questions in people’s mind regarding the purity of milk. Milk is also adulterated in the market due to less availability in many big cities including Delhi, Mumbai. The common man is not able to identify this adulteration in milk, due to which along with its negative impact on its nutritional value, people’s health is also being played with.

There will be reduction in milk adulteration
Food adulteration has become common in recent years. Even if the food item is pure, but the fear of adulteration remains even after buying it. Some people buy milk from the market and consume it, then they think whether this milk will be right and pure or not.

However, many methods are told to detect adulteration in milk and products made from milk, from villages to cities. For example, if you drop a few drops of milk on a smooth surface to detect the adulteration of water in milk, if the drop moves fast without leaving a mark, then water is mixed in it. On the other hand, if the milk is pure, then those drops will slowly increase and leave a white spot.
