Section 2 Introduction

Milk can undergo many processes. It can be Cultured, Dried, Fortified, Homogenised or Pasteurised. It can be used to create products with different taste, texture, nutritive value and shelf-life.
Milk can be used to produce a number of products from buttermilk, cheese, cream, sour cream and yogurt. However, Many people are Lactose intolerant meaning they are unable to digest Lactose the sugar in milk due to the lack of the enzyme lactase. As a result a substitute product is needed that is Lactose free.
During this assignment Milk, the factors that make up milk, the processing of milk and the types of milk and milk products will be discussed.

Section 3 Milk
Milk is the raw material for a wide range of dairy products. The quality of the manufactured milk is influenced by the quality of the milk supplied by the farmer. Creameries and milk plants will only accept quality milk .Milk will not be accepted by them if it does not meet the minimum quality standards.
The production of milk occurs in every county in Ireland with the South and South West being the main production areas. Almost 60% of milk comes from Munster.

Milk Processing

...Physical and Chemical properties of milk In this paper we will discuss the properties of milk. We will cover the major chemical components and physical properties of milk. We will discuss how both characteristics are used in daily function. We will also discuss the process that is used to measure both chemical and physical properties. There are five physical properties that we are going to discuss: density, viscosity, freezing point, and optical properties. The density of milk is used to convert mas in to volume, estimate the solids content, and to calculate viscosity. There are several factors to consider when calculating the density. Such factors are “the temperature at the time of measurement, the temperature history of material, composition of the material (especially the fat content), and inclusion of air (a complication with more viscous products)” (Food Science 1). According to Food Science “With all of this in mind, the density of milk varies within the range of 1027 to 1033 kg /m3 at 20° C” (1). The next physical factor of milk is viscosity. The viscosity of milk and milk products is important in determine the following according to Food Science,” the rate of creaming, rates of mass and heat transfer, and the flow conditions in dairy processes” (1). The most important factor in this is the temperature if the milk is to warm it will allow for breakdown of the whey proteins of the milk. However, if the milk is held at a cooler temperature this will increase the......

Organic Milk

...Organic Milk in Thailand Drinking milk was not so popular in Thailand in the past, but the trend has changed. During the past years, the trend of drinking milk among Thai people increases every year. The milk market has grown by almost 50 percent since 2004 and is expected to grow 44 percent from 2009 to 2014 (International Market Bureau Canada, 2010). However, Thailand’s milk sector is still relatively small compared to the other Asian countries. Due to the changing of this trend, the agriculturists seize the opportunity of pioneering dairy farms to supply the increased in demand of milk. In the present, Thailand has 117 dairy cooperatives with more than 20,000 households who raise dairy cows. The total production of raw milk is approximately 2.8 thousand tons per day or 13 liters per cow per day (Nualnuplong, n.d.) However, the conception of producing organic milk starts to play an important role in Thailand’s milk market. Organic milk production hasn’t been popular yet. Still, the Ministry of Agricultural and Cooperatives encourages agriculturists to change their old process of milk production into an organic process. As a result, the agriculturists would be able to increase their profitability through a higher price in spite of a diminished production. The question is “Does it worth producing organic milk?” and “Does consumers support this particular premium milk?” The cost of production of a regular process is approximately 15 baht per kilogram while the cost of an......

...Jacob Jones PSY 290 Milk Ads The ad I chose is one of the most successful Got Milk? Line of advertising, this provides several options for the designers to play with, in conjunction with the layouts and therein, their connotation. Featuring Aerosmith's Steve Tyler, the ad is a picture window with a relatively humorous connotation. The slang copy with unfinished words such as "growing'’ reflect the laid-back attitude exhibited by the star, and is meant to refer to younger audiences who speak the same kind of dialect. Her sitting position also exhibits how the jeans claim to stretch, as she looks comfortable and laid-back in bare feet. Her young yet mature age is also relevant to the audience, being that the magazine is aimed at an audience of women in their late teens and twenties. The physical positioning of Tyler's hands draw the viewer's attention inwards towards the milk mustache and his also famous kisser. The advertisement industry is a clever one, with several tricks to catch and simultaneously fool the eye, all the while achieving the overall previously mentioned effect. This forces the reader to look twice, to discern the sex of the featured model, and also to return to confirm the familiarity of the specific face. Following our current path, we return back down the other side of the leg to the waist of the jeans, where we see the woman's bellybutton is pierced, meaning to emphasize just how low the jeans truly are.

...the saying "Drink your milk to have strong bones" but what if that weren't the case. What if all that we've been told wasn't nessicarly the truth. Next time you take a sip of the moo juice really think about what you are digesting. Cow's milk gets put through many rigorous things before it hits the shelfs and makes it's way into your fridge. Drinking cow's milk can lead to harmful and dangerous side effects. In order to produce milk the cows are fed antibiotics and steroids. These are needed to fight out diseases that the cow might get. Many cows get mastitis, which is an infection of the udder. In order to treat this infections cows are given certain antibiotics that are made for cows use only. However, the antibiotics make their way into their milk and contaminate it. Most of the time the antibiotic isn't caught until it's too late and sent to the collection facility contaminating the whole batch. Canada has found that a constant low-level exposure to antibiotics leads to allergies in some individuals. (Butler). The steroids that cows are given are to boost milk growth and volume. These steroids are still completely unknown on what they do to the human body. Some say that they can be linked to cancers. (Cohan). Another thing that factors in to the pre-paturazation is pregnant cows. "According to Dr. Frank Oski, former head of pediatrics at John Hopkins University and author of Don’t Drink Your Milk, 80 percent of lactating cows are pregnant. The milk from these cows is......

Milk Production

...In rural areas, milk may be processed fresh or sour. The choice depends on available equipment, product demand and on the quantities of milk available for processing. In Africa, smallholder milk-processing systems use mostly sour milk. Allowing milk to ferment prior to processing has a number of advantages and processing sour milk will continue to be important in this sector. Where greater volumes of milk can be assembled, processing fresh milk gives more product options, allows greater throughput of milk and, in some instances, greater recovery of milk solids in product. Because of differences between processing systems, each will be dealt with separately. The section on fresh-milk technology deals with techniques used for processing fresh milk in batches of up to 500 litres. Sour-milk technology is used for processing batches of up to 15 litres of accumulated sour milk. This will be described in the section on sour-milk technology. Fresh Milk Technology This section describes the manufacture of skim milk, cream, butter, butter oil, ghee, boiled-curd and pickled cheese varieties and fermented milks from fresh milk. The processing scale envisaged is 100 to 200 litres of milk per day. However, the processes described are suitable for batches of up to 500 litres per day. Most of the equipment described can be fabricated locally. Equipment not available locally, such as a milk separator, has a cost advantage and quickly gives a good financial return in terms of increased......

...political leader? Harvey Milk is a prime example of this situation. Based on a true story, Milk is a 2008 film directed by Gus Van Sant on an American gay activist who struggles for gay rights. It all started in the 1970’s when he lived in New York opening a camera shop, Castro Camera, which becomes the store for San Francisco’s increasing gay community. Throughout the process Milk organizes gays to pull together upon political coalition. Milk moves to San Francisco while running for office with his significant other Scott Smith as his campaign director. Harvey Milk runs several times for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and finally wins. Milk became the first openly gay man to be selected in politics. I agree with this inspiring film on a gay activist with passion who came through showing the world it doesn’t matter who you are, become what you want. As I compared my life to the film, I realized I have a certain someone that goes through some of the same cruelty day to day. I grew up with a brother who came out when he was a sophomore. This was a big issue where I come from because my town is very stereotyped. I’m from a small town where if you were different from everyone else, you were very easily judged by everything you did. Therefore, it was a very difficult process for my family and I to accept. We all had to cope with the challenges that came along. As I continued to watch the movie, I saw several comparisons that related from Milk to my brother. They are......

Milk Succesion

...INTRODUCTION Growing up we all remember how much our mothers emphasized and encouraged us to drink milk. The reason was simple, milk is a highly nutritious drink. It contains carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids. Bacteria, which is a prokaryotic cell, is found any nutritious place. Since milk is highly nutritious, it makes an ideal home for bacteria. Milk goes through pasteurization. This process reduces the number of bacteria and increases milks shelf life. It reduces the bacteria, but does not kills all of them. Putting it in the fridge slows down the speed of bacteria multiplying. Once you take it out the fridge, and leave it in room temperature, they grow at a high speed. If left over a long period of time, an orderly succession of microorganism communities takes place. In this experiment, me and my partner will work together to observe the environmental conditions, and pattern of succession that takes place in plain whole milk, over a period of eight days. Lactobacillus and streptococcus both survive pasteurization. These two ferment lactose to lactic acid, thus dropping in pH level. This acidic environment causes casein to curdle up. We expect to see yeasts and fungi, because they grow well in acidic environment. METHOD We recorded pH using pH paper of day 0, day 1, day 2, day 4, day 6, and day 8. Than we observed the consistency, odor, and color of each. Than we made slides using the gram stain method for each day. Which is to......

...kept their mission first. And winning over the hearts and minds is a personal goal the company still to this day conducts in Iraq. The Aegis Foundation is a registered United Kingdom charity that is quoted on their web page for “aims to bring immediate relief to communities in post-conflict environments, currently Iraq and Afghanistan, through small, grass roots, community projects which are low cost and high impact – our unique hallmark.” They use small funds (through fund raisers or excess overhead) to bring basic essentials to the needy. Aegis security teams will travel throughout Iraq and deem what is necessary to better the lives of local communities. Many of those projects are by employing local workforce members to help in the process. One example is a local Iraqi community leader in Baghdad approached an Aegis security team looking for help to dig a well for safe drinking water; the team used funds from the Aegis Foundation to hire a local contractor and construction workers to complete the task. And now the community has a safe, reliable drink water source that was not available to them before. Aegis Foundation even funded a $450,000 gym for local youth in the southern city of Basra. The money was spent on renovations of an existing gym, along with new soccer equipment and gear. By investing in the gym, they intern have lowered the crime rate in the city because the youth are engaged in sports activities and not crime. This is a model example of how......

...Milk, Healthy or Not? Since a young age, we’ve been trained to believe that drinking milk is “necessary in order to obtain strong bones and teeth.” For decades, this claim has been supported by several nutritionists, scientists, and doctors; who recommend 3 servings of milk or dairy products a day. But, recent studies have brought people to question this statement. On the contrary to all the supporters of milk, other scientists and nutritionists debate this allegation with the belief that milk has its negative effects and can cause severe health risks. Milk has both healthy and unhealthy qualities but you have to determine which qualities you find more important for yourself. Each type of milk contains a different variety of nutrients which aid the body to function correctly. This product provides a great balance of fat, protein, and carbohydrates; all of which are very important sources of essential nutrients. These nutrients include calcium,, phosphorus, riboflavin, and Vitamins A & D. As we’ve all been told, calcium is essential for the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. In association with calcium, phosphorus is an essential macronutrient in the human diet. Like calcium, phosphorus is found in bones and teeth, where it’s essential to maintain the structure. Although less than phosphorus, riboflavin, (also known as Vitamin B2), is also important for body growth. More importantly, riboflavin is necessary for red blood cell production and the......

...Reynaldo Holguin PSYC3019 Dr. Christopher Jones February 19, 2015 Response Paper Milk For this response paper, we learned about the movie "Milk". He was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in the state of California. Going forward with these questions: I feel that people should not be arrested for being gay, everyone has a right in this country to be an outspoken. It's one thing for our laws and another for God's Laws. With that we are not to judge of what is happening on earth when it comes to God's Law. Harvey and Scott shows their affection in front of the store, because another business man had warned them about being openly gay people will be arrested and maybe placed out of business. Not just people were carrying whistles, but Gay people were carrying whistles to warn other gays of police or any type of mob that came into the streets. There were a few things why Harvey got elected after his few failures, he used Anita Bryant's crusade that provided to gays to group together in other parts of the country, used the expertise of Ann Kronenberg to spread in newspapers of his vision and to bring hope in the state. When gays were coming out her reaction was to start a crusade in Dade County to protect homosexuals from getting jobs and housing. Harvey had said after the election what Bryant had said "There is a draught in California". After so many failures, Harvey decided to run again, and Scott could not deal with more......

Milk Glue

...ancestors. Some very strong glues were made from fish bones, rubber or milk. Simple glue can be made by Flour and water, this glue will stick two pieces of paper together. There are also some glues that are used to keep water out of boats, buildings or vehicles. In this case the glue is called Caulk, it is made form made-made materials and is used for heavy duty work. The quality of our homemade glue is for those families who have a problem with toxics in their homes. And applying the knowledge of protein denaturing, we will make casein glue out of milk curds and acid. There are various ways that proteins can be denatured. Temperature, pH, metal ions, etc. may denature a protein. In the process of making cheese, a microorganism is used that lowers the pH, which in turn causes the milk to curd. Then an enzyme called rennet is used to cause the curds to coagulate or clump together. Next time you eat cheese or custard, look on the package for the word “rennet”. Naturally when milk sours forming curds, it is due to the action of bacteria found in the milk. Milk is about 3% casein. Casein is a protein made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur, and phosphorus. Besides food products, casein can be used in a variety of non-food products, such as combs, buttons, glue, paints, plastics, and many more. Statement of the problem and Specific questions Which is more effective and less costly? Homemade glue like Milk glue, or Commercial glues like Elmer’s glue? Other......

Milk Centrifugation

...Introduction Centrifugation is a process used to separate or concentrate materials suspended in a liquid medium. The theoretical basis of this technique is the effect of gravity on particles (including macromolecules) in suspension. Two particles of different masses will settle in a tube at different rates in response to gravity. Centrifugal force (measured as xg, times gravity) is used to increase this settling rate in an instrument called centrifuge. Centrifuges are devices used in a variety of application which spin carrier vessels (centrifuge tubes) at high rotation speeds and very high centrifugal force. The centrifugal force generated is proportional to the rotation rate of the rotor (in revolution per minute, rpm) and the distance between the rotor center and the centrifuge tube. Therefore, a given centrifuge may use multiple rotor sizes to give flexibility in choosing centrifugation conditions. Each centrifugation has a special graph, a nomograph, or a table which relates rotation rate (rpm) to centrifugal force (xg) for each size of rotor it accepts. Centrifuges come in three general classes: low speed, up to about 5000 rpm, high speed machines of up to about 25000 rpm and ultracentrifuges which will turn up to 1000000 rpm. Another form of centrifuge very common in laboratories is the microcentrifuge. These are simple machines used with 0.5 or 1.5 mL disposal plastic tubes. Most of these machines generates between 10000 and 13000 rpm. Certain procedures......
