Current study was designed to assess the quality of milk vended by different intermediaries at the surrounding of Nosharoferoz city during the year 2016-17. A total of 100 milk samples were collected each of twenty (n=20) from dairy farms, milk collectors, milk venders, processors and retailers brought in the Department of Animal Products Technology, Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Sciences, Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam for analysis. Among all the detected adulterants in market milk, water was at the top followed by detergent, rice flour, starch, cane sugar, formalin, caustic soda, salt, urea, H2O2, glucose, arrowroot, SMP, vegetable oil and dalda ghee. The extent of extraneous water in milk sold by retailers, milk venders and milk collectors were found significantly (P˂0.05) high compared to processors and dairy farms. Noteworthy increase was observed in pH value and the freezing point stirred towards water in milk vended by retailer, milk venders and milk collectors, while the specific gravity of milk obtained by dairy farms and processors was noticed comparatively (P<0.05) high. The fat, protein, lactose and ash contents of milk samples were found comparatively (P<0.05) low at retailer, milk vender and milk collector level than processor and dairy farm.
