Course Description
This course covers a range of cultured dairy products including yogurt, kefir, skyr, cream cheese, and sour cream. We will review the fundamentals of acid-coagulated milk, the processing steps involved in its manufacture, and will cover specific products including yogurt, cultured beverages, and cultured creams. A hands-on lab session is included, in CDR’s new 2nd floor pilot plant, to produce several yogurt varieties and observe the impact of ingredient selection and processing on the final texture and flavor of yogurt. This course is designed for product developers, processing engineers, and cultured milk producers seeking to learn more about the industrial manufacture of cultured milks.
