Ultrasonic Processing Of Dairy Ingredients To Controlprotein Aggregation And Promote Heat Stability

Grant number: LP0561887

Abstract

This project is an emerging collaboration between the University of Melbourne, Food Science Australia and the Dairy Ingredients Group of Australia. We aim to use acoustically generated chemical and physical effects to modify dairy proteins. Transformation of the sulphur-containing proteins by this means should overcome many of the difficulties currently encountered in thermal processing of whole milk and whey proteins. This work will place the Australian dairy industry in a pre-eminent position for the development of valuable, heat-stable and uniquely functional ingredients based on novel micro/nano structures. Existing world class expertise will be further developed in ultrasonic processing..
