Coimbatore: To prevent the entry of adulterated milk into Kerala, the government there has set up a temporary milk testing facility at Meenakshipuram check post near neighbouring Pollachi at the Tamil Nadu-Kerala Border.

Being the Onam season, a large quantity of milk is being supplied to Kerala both from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and the lab has been set up to test the milk and curd for adulteration, police said.

 

The facility takes about 200 ML of milk for testing, which consumes nearly 20 minutes, resulting in the loss of money and time for the vendors, as they check whether the milk contains urea, starch, or chemicals, to increase its thickness.

The tests will be done till September 13, they said.
