Proceedings From The 31st Annual Italian And Specialty Cheese Seminar, Various Authors

Cheese Industry Conference

The impact of mixer temperature and mixer screw speeds on fat recovery, protein recovery, and yield of Mozzarella cheese was determined. In the first trial three different cheese temperatures were achieved: 130·F (54.C); 140•F (60.C); and 150.F (66·q. In the mixer temperature trial, a screw speed of 12 rpm (revolutions per minute) was used at all mixer temperatures. In the second trial, three different mixer screw speeds were used for stretching: 5 rpm, slow; 12 rpm, medium (ca. 50o/o of mixer full speed); 19 rpm, fast. Three vats of cheese were made per ...


Consumption Of Iron-Fortified Cheese And Lipid Peroxidation In Females, Gene J. Giunti May 1994

Consumption Of Iron-Fortified Cheese And Lipid Peroxidation In Females, Gene J. Giunti

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Dairy products are important sources of calcium and other nutrients but are a poor source of dietary iron. Cheese comprises a substantial portion of dairy food consumption and has been determined an appropriate medium for iron-fortification. However, iron may promote the potentially harmful process in food and biological systems known as lipid peroxidation. Therefore, the safety of consuming iron-fortified cheese was examined.

Commercial-scale batches of Cheddar cheese were iron-fortified to a level of two milligrams of iron per ounce with either ferric chloride, ferric-casein complex, or ferric-whey protein complex. Fifty-four premenopausal females were divided into three treatment groups and supplemented ...
