Milk and dairy products are a major part of the human diet in many countries. It is not surprising therefore that considerable attention is paid to obtaining the best possible quality of milk by improving the yield, compositional quality and hygienic quality, and minimizing the level of contaminants at all stages of milk production. This book provides easily understood background knowledge of milk quality problems. It identifies the quality parameters of significance, and explains what they are, why they are important and how they are measured. Practical help is given for the sampling and testing of milk. Most important of all, the value of good quality milk and how it can be produced and maintained are stressed. This volume is essential reading for dairy scientists and technologists, particularly microbiologists, food processors, quality control personnel, nutritionists and regulatory officials. It will also be an invaluable source of reference for practitioners and researchers in dairy farming and veterinary science.
