Internship - Predicting homogenization outcome for model condensed milk products

Bedrijf: FrieslandCampina
Richting(en): Engineering / Techniek |
Niveau: WO
Locatie: Wageningen

Short description

Homogenization is commonly used for improving product properties such as shelf-life stability and other functional properties. During the emulsification process the droplet sizes are reduced when the product passes through a narrow slit under high pressure. This process is mostly associated with the dairy industry but is has also shown to add benefits to products like cloudy juices and nectars, tomato products and pasteurized liquid whole egg. Due to its common use there is a need for better understanding and more insight into homogenization processes. So do you want to contribute the understanding on how to improve the processing for a condensed dairy products using emulsification techniques?
