Before sell to China, make sure the quality of dairy products must comply with China regulation. There five major factors:

2. Pesticide Residues
Recently, various countries have paid great attention of pesticide residues in milk. According to the study, toxicology experts says that the pesticide residues in milk are micro-dose but will slowly poison human body. Strictly controlling of pesticide residues in dairy has attracted increasing attention.
Pesticides can be used to kill insects, fungi and other organisms that imperil the growth of crops. Some high stability pesticides can exist for long time in the nature, accumulating in animals, plants and humans to cause damage. Because there are many types of feed, such as corn, wheat, rice, sorghum, beans, etc., so there are also various kinds of pesticide. Besides, because of the long industrial chain of cow milk, the milk is easy polluted in the process chain, and threaten the dairy safety.
Many countries have revised the maximum residue limits (MRL) of pesticides in milk and dairy products and the standards are more strictly. While most of countries have ruled a lot of limit to pesticides, herbicides and fungicides usage. Japan has formulated more than 300 kinds of pesticide MRL in milk and a large kinds of the pesticides are “Not Allow”.
The Regulations of Pesticide Residues in Food, implemented on August 1, 2014 in Hong Kong, China, have made about 142 kinds MRL of pesticides residues. In addition, EU has ruled more than 460 kinds of MRL, the number is 190 in America, also 227 in Australia. Furthermore, Japan and Australia are the most strictly.
Where are the pesticide residues come from?
①Feeding the cows or animals with polluted water and feeds which contain pesticides, and some pesticides accumulated in the animals through the food chain.
②The herbicides usage to clean the fungi, bacteria, nematodes and flies, mosquitoes or other insects on the cows. The pesticides will mix into the milk or milking container.
③During the production of dairy products, the pesticides used in feed cultivation will flowed into raw milk, and then flowed into milk and dairy products through the process chain.

4. Pathogenic Bacteria
It is not uncommon for organisms to invade milk. Microbes can invade milk sources through a variety of ways and methods. When the milk is contaminated with microorganisms, the microorganisms will rapidly multiply at the appropriate temperature, which will make the milk rancid and spoiled and lose its edible value. Phages of most bacteria such as Escherichia coli, lactic acid bacteria, dysentery bacteria, salmonella, cholera, staphylococcus, tuberculosis, actinomycetes, etc.
5. Milk Adulteration
Milk adulteration is mainly done by mixing water, rice soup, starch, sodium carbonate and other methods. The most commonly used is water blending. Mixing rice soup or mixing starch is a transforming method of mixing with water, which can cover the thin feeling when mixing with water, and mixing with starch can make the color of milk whiter. The purpose of blending sodium carbonate is to reduce the acidity of milk with mild spoilage and sourness, which should not be detected during testing.
Fresh milk is mainly a complex latex composed of water, fat, protein, lactose, minerals, vitamins, etc., where the moisture content is 86% to 90%, so its nutrient content is relatively low compared with other foods. The specific gravity of cow milk is 1.032 on average, and the specific gravity is related to the solid content in milk. In addition to the relatively large changes in fat content, the other components of milk are basically stable, so the specific gravity can be used as a simple indicator for evaluating the quality of fresh milk.
