Toned milk was first made in India. The production of milk in India is less compared to its large population. To meet large demand for milk, Bombay Milk Supply Scheme introduced toned milk in 1948 after the Second World War. Toned milk means the product prepared by admixture of cow, buffalo milk or both with fresh skim or by admixture of cow, buffalo milk or both with not-fat milk, milk solids or milk powder and water or by partial extraction or addition of fat from or to milk. It shall be pasteurized and shall show a negative phosphatase test. When fat or solids not fat are used, it shall be ensured that the products remains homogenous and not deposition of solids takes places on standing.
