Abstract: Over 3.5 million people lives at Chittagong Metropolitan Areas (CMA) in Bangladesh. To meet the demand of fluid milk for such a large human population four sources of fluid milk is available in CMA as farm produced milk, vendor supplied farm milk, vendor supplied rural milk, and market milk of different brands. The present study was carried out during a period from 5th January to 26th February’2012 to detect the nutritional quality of incoming fluid milk from rural to CMA. Milk samples were collected from five different entry points of CMA (Solasahar, Janalirhat, Karnafuli bridge, Potenga and Bohoddarhat). A total of 20 samples, 4 from each entry point were collected to evaluate the physical (specific gravity) and chemical (percentage of butter fat, solids-not-fat, total solids, protein and water) parameters of milk samples and analyzed by I.S.I. (1984) method for detecting the types of adulterant. Study reveals that the nutritional quality was very poor in almost all samples. Water adulteration was detected in 100% samples. To increase the volume of milk more water adulteration is occurred as well as for extra earning. Adulterations with powder milk were also detected in kornafuli bridge point which was used for producing sweetmeat and curd.
