Asian Journal of Scientific Research , 2008,
Abstract: This study was conducted to evaluate physicochemical and microbiological quality of raw, pasteurized and UHT milks in Shahrekord (Iran) in the spring 2005. All types of milk samples were collected from different part of the city were selected and in three consequent periods. The physicochemical parameters including fat, protein, temperature, Titrable Acidity (TA), Solid Not Fat (SNF) and Specific Gravity (SG) were determined. Additionally, the microbiological evaluations were based on the total bacterial count, total coliform count and Escherichia coli (E. coli). The results (mean values of 81 measurements) for raw milk samples showed fat content 2.6, protein 3.5, T 18 °C, TA 0.17, SNF 7.71 and SG 1.030 and total bacterial count 13x106 cfu mL-1, total coliform count 1300 cfu mL-1 and E. coli positive. Those values for the pasteurized milks were the fat content 2, protein 3.5, T 15 °C, TA 0.16, SNF 7.5 and SG 1.033 and total bacterial count 71x104 cfu mL-1, total coliform count 800 cfu mL-1 and E. coli positive. Furthermore, the values of UHT milks were the fat content 2.8, protein 3.1, T 19 °C, TA 0.15, SNF 8.3, SG 1.029, total bacterial count 71 cfu mL-1, total coliform count 9 cfu mL-1 and E. coli negative. Statistical analysis of data revealed that there is significant difference between results of different shops at the level of p<0.01 which implies the contamination of raw and pasteurized milk is above standards.

Research Journal of Dairy Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/rjdsci.2010.28.34
Abstract: Twelve different liquid market milks of Bangladesh were examined to evaluate their chemical and sanitary quality. Six of these were open raw milk bought from local daily markets and the other six were processed packet milk (both pasteurized and UHT (Ultra High Temperature)-processed) available in shops. The twelve samples were examined for the determination of percentage of water, total soluble solids, fat, solids non-fat, lactose, protein and ash, measurement of titratable acidity, detection of adulterants, enumeration of total bacterial count, staphylococcal count, coliform count, fecal coliform count, Salmonella and Shigella count, Aeromonas hydrophila count and psychrophilic count. Results revealed that most of the raw and pasteurized milks were substandard in both chemical and sanitary quality whereas the quality of UHT-treated milks was excellent. All the pasteurized and raw milks were found to be contaminated having bacterial load exceeding the acceptable limit. Pathogenic bacterial genera (Aeromonas, Salmonella and Staphylococcus) were identified in some of these samples. But none of the UHT-processed milk contained any bacteria. Water had been added in six samples whereas, sucrose was found in five of the six temperature-processed samples.
Fluoride Content in Bottled Water in Fiji
Public Health Research , 2012, DOI: 10.5923/j.phr.20120205.10
Abstract: Objectives: The aims of this study was to evaluate the fluoride content of bottled drinking water commercially available in Fiji in March 2006; and to report on the labelling of fluoride concentrations. Methods and Materials: Commercially available bottled water in Fiji, in March 2006 was purchased from supermarkets. Three bottles of 11 brands were purchased. Ten millilitres of each water sample was mixed with 2 millilitres of spands reagent; these were then tested for fluoride concentrations using photo spectrometry at wavelength of 580 nanometres. The fluoride concentrations listed on the sample labels were also noted and compared with the results obtained from the spectrometry test. Results: The mean (±standard deviation) of fluoride was 0.09 (±0.05) ppm. None of the brands tested labelled the fluoride concentration in the bottled water. The range of fluoride concentration was between 0.02 to 0.34 ppm. There was also a vast variation of fluoride concentrations within the same brand of product. Conclusions: Commercially available bottled drinking waters in Fiji contain a wide range of concentrations of fluoride and none of the manufacturers labelled the content of fluoride on the bottle. It was also noted that none of the brands contained optimal levels of fluoride.

Abstract: Introducción: La leche de vaca forma parte de la alimentación del ni o mayor de 1 a o. La industria láctea utiliza procesos térmicos que pueden afectar algunos nutrientes de la leche. Objetivo: evaluar el efecto del proceso de elaboración de leches pasteurizada, fluida UHT y en polvo, sobre la calidad químico nutricional y organoléptica. Método: Muestras de los 3 tipos de leche, obtenidas de una materia prima común, a los 0 y 90 días fueron sometidas a análisis de humedad, proteínas (N x 6,38), grasas, cenizas, calcio, fósforo, acidez, vitamina A, lisina disponible, perfil de ácidos grasos, índice de peróxidos e índice tiobarbitúrico y de energía. Se evaluó también apariencia, color, aroma, sabor, acidez, rancidez, viscosidad y aceptabilidad. Análisis estadístico: se utilizó cálculo de promedio aritmético y desviación estándar, diferencia entre promedios, test de análisis de varianza y test "t" de Student a los promedios de análisis químicos y test de Duncan a las pruebas sensoriales11. Resultados: La evaluación realizada a tiempo cero, para todas las leches, y después de 90 días de almacenamiento a temperatura ambiente, para leche UHT y en polvo, no mostró cambios en los macronutrientes para ningún tipo de leche siendo similares al expresarlos en base líquida con cantidades comparables de sólidos. En cuanto a micronutrientes, hubo una disminución significativa en vitamina A y lisina disponible en leche en polvo y en ácido linoleico para leche UHT a los 90 días. Sensorialmente, todas las leches fueron evaluadas como de buena calidad, buena aceptabilidad, sin diferencias notables ni entre ellas ni con un control siendo, en algunos atributos de calidad y en aceptabilidad, mejor evaluada la leche UHT. Conclusión: Los cambios químico-nutricionales encontrados en ambas leches (fluida UHT y en polvo), que son inherentes a los procesos utilizados, no debieran afectar la situación nutricional del ni o cuando la leche está integrada a una alimentación balanceada Cow’s milk is part of the diet of children older than 1 year. The thermal processes used by the dairy industry may affect some of the nutrients present in milk. This study evaluated the effect of processing milk in terms of the nutritional and chemical quality of pasteurized, spray dried and UHT milks using the same batch of milk as raw material. All milks showed no change in macronutrients immediately after production and after a 90 day storage period for spray dried and UHT milk, with similar contents when expressed on a liquid basis and comparative solid levels. Regarding micronutrients, a significant

Abstract: In this study measurements of color parameters of UHT milk were performed, by using a MOM-color 100 photoelectric tristimulus colorimeter. Colors of UHT milk samples containing 3.2% and 1.6% milk fat, processed under industrial conditions, packed in polyethylene terephtalate (PET) based packages, and stored for 0, 15, 30, 45, 60 and 90 days at ambient temperature (20±5°C) were examined. Results are shown in four different systems that define measurement of color parameters expressed in: CIE, CIE L*a*b*, Hünter and ANLAB – Adams Nickerson systems. Average value of mean reflectance of UHT milk determined in CIE system statistically is highly significantly changed, (p < 0.01) depending on duration of storaging, percentage of milk fat, as well as on the interaction of the mentioned factors. For the UHT milk with 1.6% milk fat statistically significant (p < 0.05) decrease of psychometric chroma b* occurs after 60 days, and for milk with 3.2% milk fat established on 45th day of storage.
