Reference work entry


The application of ultrasound to conventional dairy processes has the potential to provide significant benefits to dairy industry such as possible cost savings and improved product properties. Moreover, the appeal of ultrasound as a processing technique has been regarded safe compared to other emerging technologies. During the past decade, the technology has rapidly emerged as a mild nonthermal processing tool capable of replacing or assisting many conventional dairy processing applications such as inactivation of microbes and enzymes, homogenization and emulsification, creaming, crystallization, and functionality modifications within dairy systems. These aspects are highlighted in this chapter.
