What Is Cultured Milk?

Cultured milk results from converting skimmed or partially skimmed to sour taste. Fermentation of skimmed milk with lactic acid bacteria such as Lactobacillus, Lactococcus, and Leuconostoc turn it into cultured milk. Pasteurized is milk that is the result of heating to a hot temperature to kill the microorganisms.

The differences between cultured and pasteurized milk will show various purposes you can use the two products.

Cultured And Pasteurized Milk

Both cultured and pasteurized milk undergoes some treatment before consumption. Pasteurization is heating the milk in a Vat to a temperature of 145°F for about 30-minutes. The heat treatment kills the microbes and pathogens in the milk. All pathogens in the raw milk vanish due to this heat treatment.

Cultured milk is a production of sour milk, yogurt, or kefir that has undergone pasteurization. The milk ferments at a temperature of 110-115°F for 5-10 hours. During fermentation, the enzymes of the microorganisms break the lactose the natural sugar in milk. The metabolic genes in the lactic acid fungi produce the enzymes that break the sugar metabolites and convert milk into yogurt. Buttermilk is the liquid less fatty part of yogurt produced by straining the yogurt. Kefir is a production of milk fermented with bacteria and yeast.

Cultured milk gives a distinct taste of milk. Compared to raw milk, cultured milk has a longer shelf life. The taste of yogurt is tangy and sour. Kefir has a sour, tangy, and sweet taste. Buttermilk has a buttery, creamy taste. Flavored yogurt with fruit juice adds nutrition and gives a special flavor of fruits.

Pasteurized milk contains some microbes after processing. Therefore, it may become spoilt if not refrigerated. Pasteurized milk serves as a source of making many dairy products. Cultured milk is made from pasteurized milk, so are many baking products. Because of heating, the nutritional value of pasteurized milk is much lower than raw milk. Milk suppliers usually supplement pasteurized milk with calcium and vitamins to enrich the milk.

The Products Of Cultured Milk

  • Yogurt

There are quite a few cultured milk products. The most loved and widely consumed is yogurt. Yogurt is made from several bacteria in varying volumes. The tastes and flavor differ slightly with the strain of bacteria. In homemade yogurt, you can use a teaspoon of the previous yogurt to act as a starter to make a new batch.

  • Sour Cream

Sour cream is cultured milk that has been made sour. They add lactic acid bacteria to the cream. Because of fermentation, the cream thickens and becomes a tarty taste. Sour cream has over 18 percent butterfat. Some manufactures add stabilizers, such as rennin or gelatin to aid in the thickening of the sour cream.
