  • Short Note: Spray drying skim milk, concentrated milk and full cream milk

    Spray dryers are used to transform a liquid, i.e. solutions, suspensions or emulsions into dried powders. It is a quick, gentle and single step drying process. A major application is the production of milk powder. In general, liquid milk is easily denaturized and difficult to store for a long time. To prolong its shelf life and to simplify transportation milk is spray dried to milk powder. Food ...

  • Efficacy of selected probiotic cultures to inhibit Enterobacter sakazakii ATCC 12868 in model reconstituted dairy products

    Enterobacter sakazakii ATCC 12868 ( ES ) is a very dangerous opportunistic organism likely to contaminate post-pasteurised dry milk products with a high mortality rate (40–80%). This study evaluated the antimicrobial efficacy of probiotics against ES in reconstituted dried infant formula. Initial study at 30ºC showed that Enterococcus ...

  • The significance of thyroid cancer in reactor safety assessment

    The risk of thyroid cancer from reactor accidents has long been a salient factor in the analysis of nuclear reactor safety. This risk arises largely from the abundance of iodine-131 in the fission product inventory. Iodine disperses widely if released into the atmosphere and could enter the human food-chain, particularly through consumption of contaminated cows' milk. Iodine entering the human ...

  • AFLATOXINS Toxins in Peanuts, Vegetable Matter and Milk

    Aflatoxins occur naturally in peanuts, peanut meal, cottonseed meal, corn, dried chili pepper, etc. However the growth of mold does not always indicate the presence of toxin since the yield of Aflatoxins is dependent on growth conditions such as moisture, temperature, and aeration. The Aflatoxins are characterized as B for blue fluorescence and G for green fluorescence. The numerical subscripts ...

  • Environmental and Economic Perspectives of Milk Production in Feedlot and Grazing Systems

    Abstract Dairy production systems involve large inputs and large outputs. In environmental and economic terms, this means dairying is potentially a large consumer of natural resources and a generator of large amounts of pollutants and waste as green house gases (GHG) and manure. To ensure a sustainable milk production system; it becomes important to understand the environmental and ...

  • Growing demand for soybeans threatens Amazon rainforest

    Some 3,000 years ago, farmers in eastern China domesticated the soybean. In 1765, the first soybeans were planted in North America. Today the soybean occupies more U.S. cropland than wheat. And in Brazil, where it spread even more rapidly, the soybean is invading the Amazon rainforest. For close to two centuries after its introduction into the United States the soybean languished as a curiosity ...

  • Greenhouse gas, animal performance, and bacterial population structure responses to dietary monensin fed to dairy cows

    Received for publication January 27, 2009. The present study investigated the effects of a feed additive and rumen microbial modifier, monensin sodium (monensin), on selected variables in lactating dairy cows. Monensin fed cows (MON, 600 mg d–1) were compared with untreated control cows (CON, 0 mg d–1) with respect to the effects of monensin on the production of three greenhouse gases (GHG), ...

  • BioCycle world

    The Climate Action Reserve (CAR) Board of Directors unanimously adopted the Organic Waste Digestion (OWD) Project Protocol, which provides a standardized approach for quantifying, monitoring and verifying greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions from organic waste diversion projects.

  • Dietary forage impacts on dairy slurry nitrogen availability to corn

    Precise feeding of protein and mineral supplement can maintain high levels of milk production and reduce nutrient excretion in dairy manure and losses to the environment. No information is available on the impacts of feeding different silages to dairy cattle (Bos taurus) on manure N cycling in soils. Slurry from dairy cattle fed rations containing alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.; ALF), red clover ...

  • Tapping the potential of codigestion

    Codigestion refers to processing multiple biodegradable substrates (feedstocks) in an anaerobic digestion (AD) system. A more contemporary definition refers to the digestion of a combination of select biodegradable feedstocks with a base substrate that an AD system was designed to handle. The intent is to maximize the production of biogas (i.e., renewable energy) by adding substrates that produce ...
