The Indian Council of Agriculture Research's (ICAR) National Fund would be sponsoring the project.

"The main objective of the project is to detect and quantify all kinds of adulterants including the artificial milk in natural milk and sugars in apple/mango juice. Detection of some toxins such as Aflatoxin in milk and Patolin in apple juice will also be attempted," informed, Dr S N Jha, head, agricultural structures and environmental control division (AS&EC), CIPHET, adding that the project would be completed in three years.
