Milk is a nutrient – rich liquid food produced by mammary glands of mammals. Milk is the primary source of nutrition for young mammals, including breastfed human infants before they are able to digest solid food. Early – lactation milk is called colostrum, which contains antibodies that strengthen the immune system and thus reduce the risk of many diseases. Milk consumption provides high nutritional value, containing protein, casein, lactose, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
The Color Of Milk Why milk is white? Milk is made up of about 87% water and 13% solids, such as fat and various proteins. Chief among these proteins is something called casein, four types of which make up about 80% of the proteins in milk. The casein protein micelles are typically suspended somewhat uniformly throughout the milk. White objects in nature appear such when there is some level of light diffusion going on and on part of the visible spectrum gets reflected off the object anymore than any other part of that area of the light spectrum. So, as you might guess from that, these casein proteins and some of the fats in the milk scatter and deflect light uniformly throughout the visual spectrum. This results in milk being fairly opaque and appearing white in our eyes.
There are so many kind of milk, but in this article we will explain about UHT (Ultra High Temperature) milk and Fresh milk. UHT Milk It is well known that heat treatment improves milk quality by destroying pathogenic and other microorganisms. Ultra high temperature (UHT) is used in dairy industries for sterilizing milk (135°C- 150°C) for a few second. Fresh Milk Actually fresh milk is already through the pasteurization process. What is pasteurization? Pasteurization is a common procedure in dairy industries to heat milk at 72°C for 15s. Pasteurization and UHT processes doesn’t substantially change the proximate composition and fatty acids in raw bovine milk, regarding its potential nutritive properties and consequent benefits for human health. The taste of fresh milk is more creamy than UHT milk.
You can find some of benefit if you consumption both of fresh milk and UHT Milk:
• Shinny Skin
• Healthy Bones and Teeth
• Weight Loss
• Less stress
• Healthy body
• Meet nutritional needs
• Source of Energy
