Bactofugation for milk processing

Bactofugation for milk processing

Removal of bacteria and spores

Baktofugation is a process in which a specially designed hermetic centrifuge is used to separate bacteria and spores of certain bacterial strains from the shell milk.

The method is used in certain types of cheese, especially in cut cheeses.Baktofugation

In practice, bactofugation has proven to be an effective way of reducing the spore content of milk because its density is higher than that of milk.

The bactofugation separates the milk into a more or less bacteria-free fraction and a concentrate (bactofugate) containing most spores and bacteria.

This method is not necessary in hay milk cheese production and also not allowed.
