This one-of-a-kind resource gives a complete description of the manufacturing stages of yogurt and fermented milks from the receipt of raw materials to the packaging of the products.

Information is conveniently grouped under four categories:

· Basic background—History and consumption trends, milk composition characteristics, dairy processing principles, regulatory requirements, laboratory analysis, starter cultures, packaging, and more

· Yogurt manufacture—Fruit preparations and flavoring materials, ingredients, processing principles, manufacture of various yogurt types, plant cleaning and sanitizing, quality assurance, and sensory analysis

· Manufacture of fermented milks—Procedure, packaging and other details for more than ten different types of products

· Health benefits—Functional foods, probiotics, disease prevention, and the health attributes of yogurt and fermented milks

All manufacturing processes are supported by sound scientific, technological, and engineering principles. Manufacturing Yogurt and Fermented Milks is designed for professionals in the dairy and food industry as well as for upper level undergraduate and graduate students majoring in Food Science, Dairy Technology and related fields. Industry professionals, professors, and students engaged in research in dairy/ food science will find the book’s contemporary information and experience-based applications invaluable.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“…this book should prove to be a most welcome addition to the limited range of texts that deal with fermented milks in any detail, and this anticipated success will be well deserved.” Robinson, R.K., International Journal of Dairy, Vol. 60 No. 3, August 2007, p. 237.

“…the target readership of this multi-author book might be professionals in the dairy industry, undergraduate (final year) and post-graduate students, as well as university teachers, and it is pleasing to note that the majority of chapters are written with such readers clearly in mind.” Robinson, R.K., International Journal of Dairy, Vol. 60 No. 3, August 2007, p. 237.

“The overall coverage of yogurt of similar fermented milks(s) is excellent…” Robinson, R.K., International Journal of Dairy, Vol. 60 No. 3, August 2007, p. 237.

'...this book will prove very useful to professionals in the food and dairy industry, as well as those engaged in research in dairy/food science.'
