Cow urine is being sold alongside food in convenience stores in London against environmental health advice, the BBC’s Asian Network has found.
The liquid is used by worshippers in some Hindu ceremonies – although it is illegal to sell for human consumption in England.
Known as gau mutra, it was found in several shops which also sold food.
The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health warned against its sale where food was present.
All the bottles found by the BBC had a label in Hindi which said they contained cow urine intended “for religious purposes”.
