Test Description

Authenticity of products is a growing concern in terms of defrauding consumers (both personal and manufacturers) where premium products may be adulterated with cheaper alternatives but the higher price is charged. Substitution is simple when the adulterant is the same appearance and can be added without causing major changes in taste or texture, to a large degree.

Where milk is concerned there is also the added concern that an allergic consumer may be exposed to an undeclared adulterant with potentially very serious consequences.

This proficiency test will challenge laboratories to detect adulteration of the material provided with bovine milk.
