Milk Powder testing according to BIS Standards at Arbro Lab

Milk is the most widely used food product all over the world. You can easily find it in almost all households. In order to make the process of using milk in different ways more convenient, a product called milk powder gets created by spray drying standardized milk.

However, this procedure sometimes affects the nutritional value of pure milk. This is where milk powder testing helps because it ensures that all the nutrients of milk remain in the proper ratio in the powder to offer the same benefits as the liquid form. 

Certifications & Licences

In India, every brand that produces milk powder has to opt for milk powder quality testing. This examination not only helps them in assuring their product’s quality but also in receiving a BIS certification.

Under the tests, the complete sample is analyzed for its nutritional value and for different components present in it. These elements must be under the BIS permitted percentages. Only then the license for selling milk powder can be obtained. 

Milk Powder Testing Methods for Food Safety Standards

Each food product manufactured for the Indian market has to undergo proper testing. It is done to ensure that the stock is safe to be sold in the market and consumed by the buyers. The same goes for milk powder. The manufacturers have to look out for milk powder testing so that they can make their products safer for their consumers.

Milk Powder Quality Testing for Nutritional Value

As stated earlier, pure milk’s nutritional value may get influenced while turning it into powder form. The milk powder testing serves as the most reliable way to check for the nutrients present in the sample and alter the production procedure such that the nutritional value does not get much affected. Therefore, making it more beneficial for customers.
