Dairy Products: Popularity | Maintenance | Fermented and Unfermented Yogurt

Updated on June 2, 2010

Dairy products are very popular mainly because they are composed of three basic ingredients yoghurt, cheese, and milk and these foods are consumed by humans on a daily basis because they are really necessary for our body. The exact date is not known when humans began to use milk from animals and mammals such as cows, goats, etc. and therefore it is not yet known when humans began to actually consume dairy products, but according to some archaeological evidence, it has been revealed that more than 4,000 years ago, we were already consuming these products. Consumption of dairy products has been increasing day by day, and dairy industry is experiencing exponential growth. Thanks to the scientists and media who have shown consumers the benefits of dairy products for health and longevity. Also, the main cause of increased demand for dairy products is that the major population is suffering from health issues and now switching back to a balanced and nutritious diet from prior junk food diet. Dairy products provide loads of protein and calcium and people are now much aware of that.

The yogurt can be of two different types, which gives them a distinguished taste. There are several flavors for all yogurts, such as banana, tangerine, strawberry, pear, peach, etc. However, the yogurts have a simple classification and are divided into two sections. The first of these is the yoghurt with fermentation and the second is the unfermented yoghurt.

Fermented Yogurt

A yogurt is the best known fermented food ingredient consumed by human beings. Most yogurts come through a fermentation process and its origin is simple. Fermented yogurt is produced by previously fermented milks.

Unfermented Yogurt

Another option in production of yoghurt is unfermented yogurt which means that a yogurt is packed and transported in the market without having gone through a process of fermentation, but it must be made clear that unfermented yogurts are just popular like fermented yogurts among the consumers.

Maintenance of Dairy Products

But one should be very careful when maintaining dairy products because these products must be always kept in a cold storage like refrigerators and packed and transported appropriately to avoid spoilage because a stale dairy product is of no use at all. Interestingly, dairy products are the principle of development of thousands of products sold in the food market. One of the reasons manufacturers give main importance to these products is that they are composed mainly of milk, which has many derivatives which creates loads of products which create many types of recipes. Also, without milk production, the food industry would enter a crisis since many foods products come out of milk. Also, dairy products follow a strict development process so that consumers receive the products at the most optimal conditions possible. To maintain dairy products, they should be in a cold place with appropriate containers following certain FDA guidelines. It must also be kept in mind that dairy products are very sensitive to any change, i.e., weather conditions, temperature changes, etc. So, dairy product manufacturers must follow the steps set out carefully focusing mainly on consumer health.
