The Kerala Government has set up a temporary milk testing facility at Meenakshipuram check post on Pollachi side on the Tamil Nadu-Kerala border to prevent entry of adulterated milk.

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

The facility takes about 200 ml of milk for testing, and the duration gaken for testing is nearly 20 minutes, resulting in loss of money and time for the vendors, as they check whether the milk contain urea, starch and chemicals that adds to its thickness.

The testing will be done till September 13 and so far about nine lakh litres of milk have been tested in the last two days, without any complaints.
