The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD), official custodian of Sri Venkateswara temple in Tirupati, has rejected 42 truckloads of cow ghee in the last one-year for failing to meet its stringent quality standards, said an official on Wednesday. Each truckload, carrying a consignment of up to 18 tonne ghee, is audited for purity and quality by a multi-disciplinary committee drawn from various wings of the temple body such as health, vigilance, engineering and others, including a senior chemist from the Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI). “Between July 22, 2022 and June 30, 2023, we have rejected 42 truckloads of ghee for failing to meet our standards,” P Murali Krishna.

Getting into details, these trucks are required to ship the clarified butter maintaining a temperature of 60 to 70 degrees Celsius, said Krishna. Moisture percentage by weight, butyro refractometer reading at 40 degrees Celsius, free fatty acids as a percentage of oleic acid, and minimum R.M. Value are taken into consideration.

Baudouin, mineral oil, foreign colours, melting point and rancidity tests also undertaken, he said. The tests are carried out at TTD’s Water and Food Analysis Laboratory on samples received from the marketing godown. The samples are taken from every consignment and the truckloads are allowed inside only after passing the tests. Even before winning the tenders, Krishna said that dairy experts audit prospective suppliers’ plants and samples in nationally accredited laboratories.
