The abstraction of 50-60% of total fat from buffalo and cow milk produced neither any change in the shape of the globule size-distribution curves nor any noticeable variation in the peak nor in the mean diameter. Unlike buffalo and cow milk, where only one peak was observed in the size-distribution curve, the goat milk showed invariably 2 peaks. The addition of goat milk to cow and buffalo milk resulted in the appearance of 2 peaks in the fat globule size-distribution curves, thus leading to detection of this type of adulteration, which is common in Punjab.
