BHOPAL: In a major crackdown, the Madhya Pradesh special task force (STF) has busted three factories in two Chambal districts region that was supplying highly toxic synthetic milk to branded packed milk units in five states in connivance with quality control officers and agents. Sources in the STF say that food inspectors were hand in gloves with the gang.

As many as 57 people have been arrested from Morena, Bhind districs and 20 tankers, 11 pickup vans and 2275 kg maltodextrin were retrieved. Bhopal and Delhi are among main supply region.

STF SP Rajesh Bhadoria said, "The cost of producing one litre of synthetic milk was Rs. 5 and the  same was sold for Rs. 45 or Rs. 50 in cities like Bhopal and Delhi. They were producing 2 lakh litres of this milk every day and supplying it in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and other states. The manufacturing units were found to be spread across several acres of land with hundreds of employees working in 24*7 states. Those supplying raw materials to these factories have also been booked.

"We would be pressing charges and each and every individual  involved in this scam,” ADG Ashok Awasthi said.

Not just milk, STF has found huge quantity of the adulterated stuff in paneer samples. Collectors in various districts have been alerted with advisories to collect samples of milk from their respective areas to check adulteration. Seized liquid is said to be a ‘cocktail of milk, white paint and detergent.’ Chemical compounds like detergent and urea were being mixed with milk which sold to know packaging units from where it reached households.

Experts say it spikes blood sugar level and suppresses the growth of probiotics. The high glycemic Index, maltodextrin can prove dangerous for people with diabetes symptoms. Similarly, detergent in milk can cause food poisoning and other gastrointestinal complications.

The high alkaline level can also damage the body tissues. Other synthetic components mainly detergent, foreign fat, starch, sodium, sodium hydroxide (Caustic soda), sugar, urea, salt, sodium carbonate, formalin and ammonium sulphate which the gang was using to produce synthetic milk, can cause impairments and heart problems. The long-term effects are far more serious, it can cause cancer or even death.
