Mother Dairy Haldi Milk Review – Boost your Immunity & Strength
Mother Dairy Haldi Milk has a dominant butterscotch flavor, but what about haldi?
Turmeric or haldi is a natural immunity booster that has been used to make medicinal kaadhas, teas, and our trustworthy – Haldi doodh. Since the pandemic started, a wide range of immunity-boosting products has been launched in the market with the added goodness of turmeric and tulsi. Mother Dairy, a dairy giant in India has launched a butterscotch flavored Haldi milk which is being marketed as an immunity booster. We reviewed Mother Dairy’s Haldi Milk (turmeric latte) and here is what we thought about it.

Mother Dairy Haldi Milk – Detailed Review
We reviewed Mother Dairy’s Haldi Milk (turmeric latte) and here is what we want to tell you about it.
A 180 ml bottle of Mother Dairy Haldi Milk is priced at Rs 25/-.
It comes in a glass bottle with a yellow colored label. Bonus points for not using a plastic bottle.
The label mentions the following ingredients – milk, milk solids, sugar, turmeric extract (0.3%). It contains permitted synthetic food colors (102) and has added flavors (butterscotch) as well.
In a product that markets itself as an ‘immunity booster’, the addition of colors could have been avoided. The haldi content is low and there is no mention of curcumin levels anywhere on the bottle.
Opening the bottle
The label instructs to shake well before use. You will need an opener to open the bottle, it is not an easy-open bottle. We were looking for a haldi aroma in the beverage, which was missing.
The Mother Dairy Haldi Milk is bright yellow in color.
The aroma is fresh and sweet, there are lots of vanilla and butterscotch notes.
The consistency is nice and creamy; not thick like a milkshake, but not watered down either.
We had the Mother Dairy Haldi Milk chilled. The taste of the milk is very nice. It is like drinking your regular butterscotch flavored milk. The beverage is not over-sweet at all.
A lot of people don’t like Haldi flavor and aroma, and so we get why the makers would want to add butterscotch to mask the flavor and aroma of Haldi. Still, at least the haldi quantity/curcumin levels should have been substantial enough to qualify this as an immunity booster? Sadly, the only haldi connection we saw was the color, which is also synthetic.
To conclude we would like to say that it is a delicious butterscotch-flavored milkshake. But given the nutrition label, and other factors like taste and aroma, we wonder if this really helps as an ‘immunity booster’. So why label it such?
