Milk & Dairy

The Problem

Packed with nutrients, milk used to be a safe and healthy drink. But that’s no longer the case. Inappropriate culturing have led to high levels of hormones in many dairy products.

Pregnant women, babies and cancer patients are all vulnerable to the effects of these hormones.

In 2008, melamine, an industrial chemical was added to infant formula and milk powder in China. 300,000 babies became ill, and six died. Trust in dairy manufacturers is at an all-time low.

Our Role

Our medaka fish embryos test milk for estrogenic endocrine disrupting chemicals, and our zebrafish embryos test for toxicants. We assess livestock feed, raw milk, pasteurised milk and processed milk products to ensure high safety standards for the entire production process.
