Skim Milk

In an article I read online called Skim Milk: Natural Weight-Loss Foods, it talks about the benefits of drinking skim milk verse others. It talks about how drinking skim milk can help you lose weight and other health benefits. If your trying to lose weight, adding dairy products to your diet will increase fat metabolism by changing the way your body burns fat. Drinking skim milk will not only help you lose weight but help you trim inches of your waistline. Milk is nicknamed “nature's most perfect food', although that's not entirely the truth. Fat free milk is closer to the nickname because its high in protein, calcium and B vitamins. The article states that “switching from whole milk to fat free milk can be one of the more significant choices to make to reduce saturated fats and calories in your diet.” How often do you hear people say they are allergic to milk or lactose-intolerant? Well, only a small amount of people are really allergic to milk. The common problem is lactose-intolerant, which a large percentage of the world's population experience.
I believe that this article was interesting and educational. I personally did not know a lot about skim milk and how it can benefit your health. I never really understood the difference between milk types. Before meeting my husband, I use to drink 2% milk all the time, but my husband drinks skim milk, and I always thought “ew!” It just looks so watery and doesn’t taste like milk, but after two years of buying two separate gallons of milk, I have finally grown to love skim milk. It's not as creamy as 2% or whole milk. I am glad I found this article because it is good to know that I made a good choice to by switching to fat free milk and that it will help with my health.…...

Process of Milk

...Section 2 Introduction Milk can undergo many processes. It can be Cultured, Dried, Fortified, Homogenised or Pasteurised. It can be used to create products with different taste, texture, nutritive value and shelf-life. Milk can be used to produce a number of products from buttermilk, cheese, cream, sour cream and yogurt. However, Many people are Lactose intolerant meaning they are unable to digest Lactose the sugar in milk due to the lack of the enzyme lactase. As a result a substitute product is needed that is Lactose free. During this assignment Milk, the factors that make up milk, the processing of milk and the types of milk and milk products will be discussed. Section 3 Milk Milk is the raw material for a wide range of dairy products. The quality of the manufactured milk is influenced by the quality of the milk supplied by the farmer. Creameries and milk plants will only accept quality milk .Milk will not be accepted by them if it does not meet the minimum quality standards. The production of milk occurs in every county in Ireland with the South and South West being the main production areas. Almost 60% of milk comes from Munster.

Milk Delivery

...Supply Chain Management Workshop Series: Milk Run Delivery Nowadays, Supply Chain Management becomes a concern of many companies to success their improvement as there are several waste coming from these chains. By reducing all waste in these chains, company will get more benefit. These benefits are speed and responsiveness to customers, reducing inventories, reducing costs, improving customer satisfaction, and also Supply Chain as a competitive weapon. Supply chains that want to grow and continue to improve must adopt lean. Lean is a cooperative process for survival and for success. Lean concepts require an attitude of continuous improvement with a bias for action. A lean supply chain is proactive and plans for the unexpected by positioning all resources for effectiveness. Downturns in demand can be addressed without layoffs or significant productivity losses. A lean supply chain is one that produces just what and how much is needed, when it is needed, and where it is needed. Gaining visibility into your transportation operations all the way from raw materials vendors to your end customers will open the door for communication, process development, and management skills that can be leveraged in other areas like inventory management and procurement. A bonus is that many of the more advanced supply chain visibility tools gaining rapid acceptance in the marketplace are either part of a suite of applications that combines Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Transportation......

Milk Processing

...Physical and Chemical properties of milk In this paper we will discuss the properties of milk. We will cover the major chemical components and physical properties of milk. We will discuss how both characteristics are used in daily function. We will also discuss the process that is used to measure both chemical and physical properties. There are five physical properties that we are going to discuss: density, viscosity, freezing point, and optical properties. The density of milk is used to convert mas in to volume, estimate the solids content, and to calculate viscosity. There are several factors to consider when calculating the density. Such factors are “the temperature at the time of measurement, the temperature history of material, composition of the material (especially the fat content), and inclusion of air (a complication with more viscous products)” (Food Science 1). According to Food Science “With all of this in mind, the density of milk varies within the range of 1027 to 1033 kg /m3 at 20° C” (1). The next physical factor of milk is viscosity. The viscosity of milk and milk products is important in determine the following according to Food Science,” the rate of creaming, rates of mass and heat transfer, and the flow conditions in dairy processes” (1). The most important factor in this is the temperature if the milk is to warm it will allow for breakdown of the whey proteins of the milk. However, if the milk is held at a cooler temperature this will increase the......

Dairy Products Milk

...industry is a major agribusiness sector which has historically been largely production and supply driven: • the majority of milk production enterprises supply dairy manufacturing or processing cooperatives which have developed into large enterprises aimed at achieving the best overall returns from supplied milk; • major volumes of milk are converted into storable dairy products which are sold into available international markets; and • national milk production is highly seasonal to take advantage of low-cost production conditions (such as spring pasture growth). With the strong forces of globalisation, the industry value chain has in the past decade been highly exposed to demand factors and forces in export and domestic market segments. These have had a profound effect on the returns to the overall industry and the nature of competition through the chain. The most marked of these changes has been in the domestic consumer product sector. Since the early 1980s the industry progressively removed internal support and regulation of prices and supply, and focused on taking advantage of low-cost production conditions to become a major player in the world market for dairy commodities and dispose of larger volumes of product. The final phase of that deregulation – of pricing and supply of milk to the packaged milk sector which directly affected less than a fifth of national milk output – is a relatively recent event. Considerable adjustment is still occurring in parts of the......

...Jacob Jones PSY 290 Milk Ads The ad I chose is one of the most successful Got Milk? Line of advertising, this provides several options for the designers to play with, in conjunction with the layouts and therein, their connotation. Featuring Aerosmith's Steve Tyler, the ad is a picture window with a relatively humorous connotation. The slang copy with unfinished words such as "growing'’ reflect the laid-back attitude exhibited by the star, and is meant to refer to younger audiences who speak the same kind of dialect. Her sitting position also exhibits how the jeans claim to stretch, as she looks comfortable and laid-back in bare feet. Her young yet mature age is also relevant to the audience, being that the magazine is aimed at an audience of women in their late teens and twenties. The physical positioning of Tyler's hands draw the viewer's attention inwards towards the milk mustache and his also famous kisser. The advertisement industry is a clever one, with several tricks to catch and simultaneously fool the eye, all the while achieving the overall previously mentioned effect. This forces the reader to look twice, to discern the sex of the featured model, and also to return to confirm the familiarity of the specific face. Following our current path, we return back down the other side of the leg to the waist of the jeans, where we see the woman's bellybutton is pierced, meaning to emphasize just how low the jeans truly are. Because our eyes naturally......

...the saying "Drink your milk to have strong bones" but what if that weren't the case. What if all that we've been told wasn't nessicarly the truth. Next time you take a sip of the moo juice really think about what you are digesting. Cow's milk gets put through many rigorous things before it hits the shelfs and makes it's way into your fridge. Drinking cow's milk can lead to harmful and dangerous side effects. In order to produce milk the cows are fed antibiotics and steroids. These are needed to fight out diseases that the cow might get. Many cows get mastitis, which is an infection of the udder. In order to treat this infections cows are given certain antibiotics that are made for cows use only. However, the antibiotics make their way into their milk and contaminate it. Most of the time the antibiotic isn't caught until it's too late and sent to the collection facility contaminating the whole batch. Canada has found that a constant low-level exposure to antibiotics leads to allergies in some individuals. (Butler). The steroids that cows are given are to boost milk growth and volume. These steroids are still completely unknown on what they do to the human body. Some say that they can be linked to cancers. (Cohan). Another thing that factors in to the pre-paturazation is pregnant cows. "According to Dr. Frank Oski, former head of pediatrics at John Hopkins University and author of Don’t Drink Your Milk, 80 percent of lactating cows are pregnant. The milk from these cows is......

Milk Production

...In rural areas, milk may be processed fresh or sour. The choice depends on available equipment, product demand and on the quantities of milk available for processing. In Africa, smallholder milk-processing systems use mostly sour milk. Allowing milk to ferment prior to processing has a number of advantages and processing sour milk will continue to be important in this sector. Where greater volumes of milk can be assembled, processing fresh milk gives more product options, allows greater throughput of milk and, in some instances, greater recovery of milk solids in product. Because of differences between processing systems, each will be dealt with separately. The section on fresh-milk technology deals with techniques used for processing fresh milk in batches of up to 500 litres. Sour-milk technology is used for processing batches of up to 15 litres of accumulated sour milk. This will be described in the section on sour-milk technology. Fresh Milk Technology This section describes the manufacture of skim milk, cream, butter, butter oil, ghee, boiled-curd and pickled cheese varieties and fermented milks from fresh milk. The processing scale envisaged is 100 to 200 litres of milk per day. However, the processes described are suitable for batches of up to 500 litres per day. Most of the equipment described can be fabricated locally. Equipment not available locally, such as a milk separator, has a cost advantage and quickly gives a good financial return in terms of increased......

...political leader? Harvey Milk is a prime example of this situation. Based on a true story, Milk is a 2008 film directed by Gus Van Sant on an American gay activist who struggles for gay rights. It all started in the 1970’s when he lived in New York opening a camera shop, Castro Camera, which becomes the store for San Francisco’s increasing gay community. Throughout the process Milk organizes gays to pull together upon political coalition. Milk moves to San Francisco while running for office with his significant other Scott Smith as his campaign director. Harvey Milk runs several times for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and finally wins. Milk became the first openly gay man to be selected in politics. I agree with this inspiring film on a gay activist with passion who came through showing the world it doesn’t matter who you are, become what you want. As I compared my life to the film, I realized I have a certain someone that goes through some of the same cruelty day to day. I grew up with a brother who came out when he was a sophomore. This was a big issue where I come from because my town is very stereotyped. I’m from a small town where if you were different from everyone else, you were very easily judged by everything you did. Therefore, it was a very difficult process for my family and I to accept. We all had to cope with the challenges that came along. As I continued to watch the movie, I saw several comparisons that related from Milk to my brother. They are......

Milk Succesion

...INTRODUCTION Growing up we all remember how much our mothers emphasized and encouraged us to drink milk. The reason was simple, milk is a highly nutritious drink. It contains carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids. Bacteria, which is a prokaryotic cell, is found any nutritious place. Since milk is highly nutritious, it makes an ideal home for bacteria. Milk goes through pasteurization. This process reduces the number of bacteria and increases milks shelf life. It reduces the bacteria, but does not kills all of them. Putting it in the fridge slows down the speed of bacteria multiplying. Once you take it out the fridge, and leave it in room temperature, they grow at a high speed. If left over a long period of time, an orderly succession of microorganism communities takes place. In this experiment, me and my partner will work together to observe the environmental conditions, and pattern of succession that takes place in plain whole milk, over a period of eight days. Lactobacillus and streptococcus both survive pasteurization. These two ferment lactose to lactic acid, thus dropping in pH level. This acidic environment causes casein to curdle up. We expect to see yeasts and fungi, because they grow well in acidic environment. METHOD We recorded pH using pH paper of day 0, day 1, day 2, day 4, day 6, and day 8. Than we observed the consistency, odor, and color of each. Than we made slides using the gram stain method for each day. Which is to......

...Milk, Healthy or Not? Since a young age, we’ve been trained to believe that drinking milk is “necessary in order to obtain strong bones and teeth.” For decades, this claim has been supported by several nutritionists, scientists, and doctors; who recommend 3 servings of milk or dairy products a day. But, recent studies have brought people to question this statement. On the contrary to all the supporters of milk, other scientists and nutritionists debate this allegation with the belief that milk has its negative effects and can cause severe health risks. Milk has both healthy and unhealthy qualities but you have to determine which qualities you find more important for yourself. Each type of milk contains a different variety of nutrients which aid the body to function correctly. This product provides a great balance of fat, protein, and carbohydrates; all of which are very important sources of essential nutrients. These nutrients include calcium,, phosphorus, riboflavin, and Vitamins A & D. As we’ve all been told, calcium is essential for the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. In association with calcium, phosphorus is an essential macronutrient in the human diet. Like calcium, phosphorus is found in bones and teeth, where it’s essential to maintain the structure. Although less than phosphorus, riboflavin, (also known as Vitamin B2), is also important for body growth. More importantly, riboflavin is necessary for red blood cell production and the......

...Reynaldo Holguin PSYC3019 Dr. Christopher Jones February 19, 2015 Response Paper Milk For this response paper, we learned about the movie "Milk". He was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in the state of California. Going forward with these questions: I feel that people should not be arrested for being gay, everyone has a right in this country to be an outspoken. It's one thing for our laws and another for God's Laws. With that we are not to judge of what is happening on earth when it comes to God's Law. Harvey and Scott shows their affection in front of the store, because another business man had warned them about being openly gay people will be arrested and maybe placed out of business. Not just people were carrying whistles, but Gay people were carrying whistles to warn other gays of police or any type of mob that came into the streets. There were a few things why Harvey got elected after his few failures, he used Anita Bryant's crusade that provided to gays to group together in other parts of the country, used the expertise of Ann Kronenberg to spread in newspapers of his vision and to bring hope in the state. When gays were coming out her reaction was to start a crusade in Dade County to protect homosexuals from getting jobs and housing. Harvey had said after the election what Bryant had said "There is a draught in California". After so many failures, Harvey decided to run again, and Scott could not deal with more......

Milk Centrifugation Since the media is usually a viscous substances, the swinging buckets appears to have a lower relative centrifugal force, and it takes longer to precipitate anything contained within. If, however, the aim is to separate molecules or organelles on the basis of their movements through a viscous field, then the swinging bucket is the choice. (UTAR, 2016) Objectives: 1. to learn the process of centrifugation 2. to determine the relationship between the coagulation of milk that will separate from solution and speed of centrifugation. Materials: Centrifuges, Centrifuge tube (15 mL), micro centrifuge tubes (1.5 mL), Micropipette, fresh milk, acetic acid. Methods: 1. 10 mL of fresh milk was drawn into centrifuges tube which contains 50% of acetic acid. 2. Inverted gently few times to mix. 3. Milk sample was centrifuged at 1500 rpm for 10 minutes to pellet the coagulated milk solid. 4. One mL of milk was transferred to the centrifuge tube and was centrifuged in 5000 rpm for 15 minutes. 5. One mL of milk was transferred to the micro centrifuge tube and was centrifuged in 13000 rpm for 15 minutes. 6. The differences between these tubes was observed at the end of procedure. Discussion After first centrifugation at speed of 1500rpm for 10 minutes, 1 fine layer of white precipitate, cloudy solution and clear solution formed. The fine precipitate is known as casein. However, only little casein was separate and present of cloudy of solution is due to low speed of......
