    Description

    Milk provides us with essential elements that are vital for our development and growth. We all start our life with drinking milk and we all know that dairy cows can produce milk for humans consumption. But who knows what is really in it? Milk is a rich source of proteins, minerals and vitamins and researchers have identified more that 100 different components in milk.

    Dairy processing companies collect the milk from thousands of cows and mix it all together to produce their delicious products. But is all the milk from all these cows the same? No, it is not. In fact, there are large variations in composition and quality of different milk. Dairy processing companies want to ensure a high quality product with lots of nutritive elements for their consumers. So they need to know what kind of milk the collect. Therefore, they test the ‘quality’ of the milk. But what is milk quality? Is it the milk fat %, milk protein %, bacteria count, somatic cell count or antibiotic residue in the milk?

    This booklet aims to introduce the basic facts about milk and it aims to clarify some basic terminology of milk quality. When people discuss about the quality of milk, they should understand the difference between milk composition, bacteria count, somatic cell count, residue etc.
