Authors(3) :-R. P. Chavan, V. T. Bendale, C. L. Patil

The study was conducted to evaluate physiochemical quality of milk samples and adulteration in milk sold in Thane City during the year 2017. Ten loose buffalo milk samples were collected from selected dairy shop of Thane City. The samples were analyzed for fat, solid-non-fat (SNF), protein, acidity, specific gravity, PH, neutralizers and adulterants. Our analysis showed that the milk samples analyzed were free from adulterants like detergent, sugar, starch, salt, hydrogen peroxide, urea, ammonia, nitrates. Acidity ranges from 0.117 to 0.146%, fat from 2.7 to 6.0%, Protein from 2.46 to 2.90%, SNF from 7.11 to 9.37%, Specific gravity from 1.023 to 1.032. The statistical analysis showed that the fat, protein, SNF of these samples were significantly different.
