Yoghurt production process
Yoghurt production is used to typify the production of all fermented products. The milk to be used is pre-treated according to the product to be manufactured, and undergoes a standardization process to ensure a specific fat content. It does not matter whether you are making set yoghurt, stirred yoghurt, drinking yoghurt or another fermented product such as sour cream, crème fraîche, kefir, buttermilk or sour milk, the core process is the same. The milk is brought to the required fat content for the desired end product. After homogenization and pasteurization, the bacterial culture specific to the particular product is added to the milk and incubated. Once products reach the optimum pH value, they are cooled, a fruit mixture is added if required and then filling takes place. This is usually under aseptic conditions,in order to avoid recontamination.
