1 USE OF STABILIZERS TO IMPROVE THE TEXTURE OF A FERMENTED BEVERAGE ELABORATED FROM MILK AND ACID WHEY Lurdes G. Siberio-Pérez Food Science and Technology Program May 6, 2010.
3 Introduction Due to the decrease in the consumption of milk (Tamine, 2002; Boor, 2001) – Different taste – Longer shelf life – Easy lactose digestibility Pszczola (2008) – Sales increased at a rate of 20% – Fermented or cultured dairy products Yogurt Yogurt drinks
4 Fermented Dairy Products Cultured Milk (CFR ) – The food produced by culturing with microorganisms. Cream Milk, partially skim, skim milk Buttermilk, whey – Kefir Acidic mildly alcoholic fermented dairy beverage (Witthuhn et al., 2005). – Kefir-grains – Starter cultures Lactose is used by the mixed cultures to carry out the fermentation process. content/uploads/2008/01/kefir.jpg
5 Whey By-product of the manufacture of cheese – Sweet whey – Acid whey 93.4% Water 6.35% Total Solids – Lactose Environmental problem due to biological oxygen demand (BOD) (Paraskevopoulou et al., 2003) Its disposal into rivers and onto fields promotes bacterial growth and causes oxygen depletion of water and soil (Ghaly and Ramkumar, 1999). 269e20120a5a134e2970b-500pi
6 Whey cont. Puerto Rico (2005) – 4 million tons of acid whey where produced (ORIL, ). Further whey utilization (Gallardo-Escamilla et al., 2005; González-Martínez et al., 2002) – Manufacture of fermented beverages Use of potentially valuable nutrients Reduction of environmental pollution
7 Whey cont. Itara-Rodríguez (2007) – “Elaboration of a Fermented Beverage From Acid Whey and Milk” Prepared different fermented beverage formulations Beverages with high proportions of whey – 75% and 50% Low Viscosity – Recommendation Use of stabilizers
8 Stabilizers Polysaccharides or Hydrocolloids – Thicken and gel aqueous solutions. – Modify and control the texture – Control syneresis – In cultured milks Control texture and whey separation (Singh and Heldman, 1993) Prevent milk proteins from sedimentation Use of stabilizers that have electrostatic interactions with milk proteins (Tamine, 2006; Ares et al., 2007) – Pectin – Gelatin
9 Stabilizers cont. Pectin – Gallardo-Escamilla et al., (2007); studied the characteristics of fermented sweet whey after the addition of several stabilizers. Pectin – Increased the instrumental and perceived viscosity of whey. – Matched the physical viscosity of commercial fermented milk beverages.
10 Stabilizers cont. Gelatin – Ares et al., 2007; studied the effect of the addition of gelatin and starch on the rheological and sensory textural properties of plain yogurt. Gelatin – Higher viscosity was observed. – Higher sensory viscosity, creaminess and mouth-feel than starch when added to plain yogurt in the same concentration.
11 Objectives Primary Objective – Improve the viscosity of two different fermented beverage formulations with the addition of stabilizers. 75% Whey / 25% Milk 50% Whey / 50% Milk Stabilizers – Pectin – Gelatin
12 Objectives cont. Secondary Objectives – Determine which stabilizer improves the viscosity of the fermented beverage formulations. – Evaluate consumer acceptability of the fermented beverage formulations through a sensory analysis.

27 Yeast 1 S.A. Witthuhn et al., 2004; 2 S.A. Loretan et al., TW Kuo and Lin, 1999; 2TW Liu and Lin, 2000 grains collected from different households + Current investigation; ++ Formulations with different whey-milk proportions Enumeration of yeast isolated from kefir elaborated with kefir grains from different locations.
28 Results and Discussion cont. Rheological Properties Flow Behavior Index and Consistency Index
29 Flow Behavior Index and Consistency Index n and K Values in the same column with different letters are significantly different (Tukey test at a=0.05). Values are given as means with standard deviation value.
30 Flow Behavior Index (n) Flow behavior index for lactic beverages and yogurt in different studies. 50/50 (0.367) 50/50 P (0.365) 50/50 G (0.297) lower n
31 Consistency Index (K) Consistency index for lactic beverages and yogurt in different studies. Control (3.74 Pa*s n ) 75/25 P (2.62 Pa*s n )
32 Apparent viscosity estimates based on the Power Law Model for the beverage formulations (T=5ºC)
33 Results and Discussion cont. Sensory Analysis
35 Conclusions When compared to the control – Rheology (n and K) 75/25 G showed more similarity – Apparent Viscosity Curves 75/25 G showed a higher viscosity than all other formulations. The use of gelatin improved the viscosity of a fermented beverage prepared with a 75% whey proportion.
36 Conclusions cont. Sensory Analysis – Panelists did not find differences between: control, 75/25 G and 50/50 P – In the elaboration of the fermented beverages, whey can be used in proportions of 75% when stabilized with gelatin, and 50% when stabilized with pectin.
37 Conclusions cont. The addition of stabilizers improved the viscosity of the fermented beverage formulations. Whey can be used in higher proportions than those recommended by Itara-Rodríguez (2007). This could help reduce the amounts of whey disposed by cheese manufacturers and would help resolve the problem the dairy industry confronts today.
38 Recommendations Addition of flavors and sweeteners to make the beverages more acceptable to the consumers. Microbiological analysis to determine the shelf life of the final product.

46 Soluble and Colloidal Salts in Milk Equilibrium between soluble and colloidal salts. – The salt content of milk exists in a dynamic equilibrium. – Any alteration in one salt, or the form in which it exists, causes a shift in the balance and/or form of other salts. – The factor that shows a direct effect on processing is the change in the form of calcium in a milk product. Fox, 1985; Davis and Macdonald 1953; Jenness and Patton 1959; Wasltra and Jenness 1984
47 Factors Influencing the Salt Equilibrium Addition of an acid – Colloidal calcium phosphate is solubilized. Addition of an alkali – Soluble calcium phosphate is precipitated in colloidal form. Addition of colloidal phosphate – As colloidal calcium phosphate is added to milk, content of soluble phosphate is lowered, and pH decreases.
