Technical aspects

Skimming the milk usually takes place in a centrifuge, where fat clusters are separated from the more liquid part of the milk, which is then collected. In effect, the final product is milk with fat content reduced to 0.05% or less, but with the preservation of most nutrients.


Pasteurization of the product is conducted by heating the milk to at least 71.5ᵒC for 15 to 20 seconds and then cooling it abruptly to 10ᵒC, or less. This process ensures that the product is deprived of any pathogens or unwanted bacteria. A phosphatase test is used to verify that the process was conducted correctly.
