Hubli, May 25 (ANI): With over 68% of the milk in India found adulterated in a 2011 Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) study, the government is working towards providing an accurate, portable test kit. People in Hubli district of Karnataka have come up with Biosyl – a commercialised home milk testing kit for an affordable price of Rs. 50.
This kit within minutes can detect contamination of six common adulterants in milk. It is a low-cost portable system with user-friendly features. A change in colour of the milk or a change in colour of the paper indicates the presence of a contaminant. The test can detect as low a value as 0.5 per cent of the contaminant.
