The EU dairy industry produces 130 billion litres of raw milk every year for consumption and application in the production of many food, feed and pharma products. Despite the benefits that have been brought about by pasteurisation…
The SMARTMILK project will develop a new milk treatment method by merging thermosonication and pulsed electric field (PEF) technologies. Previous research indicates that milk treated this way retains more of its natural taste and nutritional characteristics than pasteurised milk, while still being very safe to drink.
The SMARTMILK project aims at developing an alternative milk treatment method to pasteurisation that is based on a combination of thermosonication and pulsed electric field technologies. The project is a response to increasing consumer demand for non-pasteurised milk products and continued consumption of raw milk across rural Europe.read more
The EU dairy industry produces 130 billion litres of raw milk every year for consumption and application in the production of many food, feed and pharma products. The quality and safety of these products is of paramount importance to protecting the health and safety of EU consumers.
The SMARTMILK project will build upon existing research into thermosonication and pulsed electric field for milk treatment and will optimise the technology for the development of a prototype. The performance of the prototype will be validated and the treated milk analysed to ensure its safety and the superiority of its nutritional values and sensory qualities.read more
