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
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
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.
