Detection of adulteration of fat in milk using specially designed dual purpose gerber butyrometer

  title={Detection of adulteration of fat in milk using specially designed dual purpose gerber butyrometer},
  author={Gopal Rathod},
Milk is considered as a nutritionally complete food and it is a natural source that contains high quality nutrients needed for good health. A rapid growth in demand for milk and milk products has led to the adulteration of milk. Earlier, mostly ghee used to be adulterated with foreign oils and fats, but there are some reports of addition of foreign fats and oils directly into milk, as generally milk is sold on the basis of its fat content. Therefore, the present project was undertaken to detect…

HPLC profiling of unsaponifiable matter and enriched sterol fraction for the detection of ghee adulteration with vegetable oils/fats

Ghee (clarified butterfat) is by far the most important indigenous milk product and has an important place in Indian diet from the ancient days. Due to increased demand, cost and variable chemical



Apparent solidification time test for detection of foreign oils and fats adulterated in clarified milk fat, as affected by season and storage

An apparent solidification time (AST) test was developed for the detection of foreign fats and oils in milk fat. AST values at 18°C for buffalo and cow milk fats ranged from 2 min 30 s to 2 min 48 s

Detection of vegetable oil in milk and milk fat

Adulteration of milk with other additives resembling in physico-chemical properties can be done. Vegetable oils, hydrogenated fats, animal body fats and their blends have been reported as adulterants

Detection of milk fat adulteration with admixture of foreign oils and fats using a fractionation technique and the apparent solidification time test

A fractionation technique followed by the apparent solidification time (AST) test was adopted for detecting the admixture of foreign oils and fats in milk fat. The AST values of the solid fraction

Detection of refined animal and vegetable fats in adulteration of pure milkfat

The objective of this research was to evaluate the presence of dehydroxylated sterols in samples of butter adulterated with exogenous refined fat of both animal and vegetable origin. The

Detection of adulteration

A program of work is in progress to establish the levels and ranges of fatty acids and other components present in the major edible vegetable oils. Authentic samples from the major producing areas

Detection of animal fats in butter by differential scanning calorimetry: A pilot study

Because of its high price, butter has always been the object of adulteration by addition of less expensive vegetable or animal fats. Although a number of methods have been proposed for the detection

Detection of non-milk fat in milk fat by gas chromatography and linear discriminant analysis.

The triacylglycerol values of the ultrapasteurized milk fats were evaluated with the discriminant function, demonstrating that one industry added non-milk fat to its product in 80% of the samples analyzed.

Rapid Vitamin E Method for Detecting Adulteration of Dairy Products with Non-Coconut Vegetable Oils

Abstract Fat isolated from the sample by the Babcock method is reacted with ferric ions and the ferrous ions, formed primarily from oxidation of the vitamin E, are complexed with bathophrenanthroline

Study on the Performance of Three Different Capillary Gas Chromatographic Analyses in the Evaluation of Milk Fat Purity

The adulteration of milk fat with foreign fat has been and still is a major concern in the dairy industry. Milk fat purity is currently evaluated by triglyceride analysis by using the Official EU


An investigation was carried out to explore the possibility of using ultra-violet and visible spectroscopy in the detection of adulteration of milk fat with cheaper oils and fats (vegetable oils and
