The pre-treatment of the milk is the same, regardless of whether set or stirred yogurt is to be produced. It includes standardization of the fat and dry matter contents, heat treatment and homogenization. It is assumed that the milk has been standardized to the required fat content before entering the line and standardization of the dry matter content takes place in an evaporator in the process line. If the dry matter content is adjusted by addition of milk powder,the equipment used is similar to that described under “Recombined milk”. Any additives, such as stabilizers, vitamins, etc., can be metered into the milk before the heat treatment.
When the yogurt milk has been pre-treated and cooled to inoculation temperature, the procedure for further treatment depends on whether set,stirred, drink, frozen or concentrated yogurt is to be produced. The quality of the yogurt in terms of texture and flavor is essential.
