Dairy Science and Technology, Second Edition
P. Walstra, Pieter Walstra, Jan T. M. Wouters, Tom J. Geurts
Building upon the scope of its predecessor, Dairy Science and Technology, Second Edition
offers the latest information on the efficient transformation of milk into high-quality products.
It focuses on the principles of physical, chemical, enzymatic, and microbial transformations.
Hardback 808 pp ISBN 9780824727635
The authors, highly regarded educators and researchers, divide the content of this book into four parts.
Part I, Milk, discusses the chemistry, physics, and microbiology of milk. In addition to providing knowledge
of milk properties, this section forms the basis for understanding what happens during processing, handling,
and storage. Part II, Processes, illustrates the main unit operations used to manufacture milk products and
highlights the influence certain product and process variables have on resulting products.
In Part III, Products, the book integrates information on raw materials and processing as they
relate to the manufacture of products. This section also explains the procedures necessary to ensure
consumer safety, product quality, and process efficiency. Part IV, Cheese, describes the processes
and transformations (physical, biochemical, and microbial) relating to the manufacture and ripening of cheese,
starting with generic aspects and later discussing specific groups of cheeses.
An important resource, Dairy Science and Technology, Second Edition provides a thorough understanding
of milk€s composition and properties and the changes that occur in milk and its products during processing and storage.
