Effect of homogenization temperature on the properties of milk and cream

The degree of dispersion of fat was assessed by the ratio of turbidities determined at 500 and 1, 000 nm on 1 ml milk diluted to 500 ml to which 1 ml N NaOH had been added, or similarly, on 1 ml cream reconstituted with skim-milk to the fat content of whole milk. Judged in this way the dispersion increased progressively with temp. up to 70 degrees C when milk or 10% cream were homogenized at 100 atm at 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 or 80 degrees C.
