Abstract: Fifty random samples of fresh cow's raw milk present as bulk tank milk were collected from different street vendors, groceries and dairy shops at Damietta Governorate. The samples were submitted for analysis colorimetrically by using spectrophotometer to determine the levels of added urea concentration. The analysis was performed before and after heat-treatment by boiling method. The obtained results revealed that mean value of urea concentrations in fresh cow's raw milk samples was found to be 18.047 ± 0.203 mg/dl, while the average value of the same samples after boiling was 17.44 ± 0.198 mg/dl. From obtained results, cow's raw milk present as bulk tank milk, sold in Damietta Governorate, considers healthy and safe for human consumption referring the normal level of milk urea nitrogen (10–16 mg/dl) and values in excess of 20 mg/dl are judge abnormal. The obtained results and public health implications and suggestive measures were discussed.
