Question
Hi,could you please gimme the name of a book that says how to make various dairy products, professionally, and includes information about the chemicals that are added to the milk that give the desired modifications to the product properties.

I'm especially interested in the food additives involved in the manufacture of dairy products and have a good knowledge of chemistry and biochemistry.,,,   

thanks for your time.

Answer
There are many books on dairy processing by such publishers as Springer, Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, and Wiley-Blackwell, but I do not have any specific titles at hand. One recently published on dairy ingredients by Wiley-Blackwell is Advances in Dairy Ingredients, ed. G. W. Smithers & M. A. Augustin, 2013 ISBN 978-0-8138-2395-9. You are probably more interested in products like yogurt, ice cream, and cheese. Relatively few chemicals are used in these: some emulsifiers in ice cream, flavors and fruits in ice cream and yogurt, and salt and rennet in cheese. Most of the modifications in properties are caused by physical and biochemical processes, such as freezing, fermentation, and heating.
