The Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences (DIAS) has developed a new test for gauging the quality of milk.

It works by measuring the blood level present in milk through the use of colour scanning, and DIAS claims that it has a measurement accuracy down to 0.1%, enabling consumers and producers to highlight the presence of blood in milk to a percentage of 0.3%.

The development of the test was partly funded by the EU and the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and it will overturn previous assurances of milk quality, since previously producers alone have been able to separate milk on the grounds that it contains too much blood, a decision based on individual judgment.
