These are the milk alternatives that results from breakdown (size reduction) of plant material (cereals, pseudo-cereals, legumes oilseeds, nuts) extracted in water and further homogenisation of such fluids, results in particle size distribution in range of 5–20 μm which imitates cow’s milk in appearance and consistency. Although, there is no stated definition and classification of these plant- literature, a general based milk alternatives classification of the plant based/vegetable milk alternatives is attempted, which is as follows: five categories into in 1. Cereal based : Oat milk, Rice milk, Corn milk, Spelt milk. 2.Legume based : Soy milk, Peanut milk, Lupin milk, Cowpea milk. 3.Nut based: Almond milk, Coconut milk, Hazelnut milk, Pistachio milk, Walnut milk. 4.Seed based: Sesame milk, Flax milk, Hemp milk, Sunflower milk. 5. Pseudo-cereal based : Quinoa milk, Teff milk, Amaranth milk. Different types of Plant-Based Milk 1. Almond milk : Almond tastes almost similar to regular milk but is thinner in consistency. It contains lower amounts of carbohydrates and saturated fat as compared to dairy and is also lactose-free. 2. Coconut Milk : Coconut is a nutrient-dense product and is a good source of fiber. It is rich in vitamin and minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium and It also contains a significant amount of zinc. is vitamin C and E. The use of coconut milk associated with health benefits such as anti- carcinogenic, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral. 3. Soy Milk : Soy milk was the first plant-based milk that provided nutrients to the population where the milk supply was inadequate or for the populations who were allergic to milk proteins and were lactose intolerant. 4. Oat Milk : As the name suggests, is made from oats. Extracted from whole groats or steel-cut oats, the milk is obtained by these oats being soaked in water, blended, and finally strained using a cheese cloth. 5. Quinoa Milk : Quinoa offers more protein and fibre than most other grains, is naturally gluten-free, and contains all the essential amino acids.

Vol .02-Issue .45-December 2023 PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER Functional components of plant- based milk. Conclusion Nutritional Comparison of Different Milks Cow’s/buffalo milk is considered a staple in many intolerance, dietary lactose people’s diets, but restrictions, and ethical preferences have led people to discover the beauty in non-dairy options too. So if you are looking for a milk alternative as a source of nutrition, find one that has a similar protein and carbohydrate count to cow’s milk — that’s 8g and 12g respectively.Most non-dairy milk is also fortified with vitamins and minerals naturally found in animal products, making them a good source for vegans who lack these essential supplements in their daily diet. Plant-based milk is often thinner and lighter in texture. Additives such as salt, carrageenan and vegetable gums are usually added to achieve a thicker and smoother texture while giving the milk longer shelf life. While not detrimental to your health, these thickening agents have been known to cause inflammation and gastrointestinal issues for some, which negates the benefits of adopting this dairy-free lifestyle.

Desi method India is the world’s largest producer and consumer of milk and dairy products. Ghee currently controls the second in terms of largest market share revenue in the Indian market. With the growth of the organized sector of the dairy industry and establishment of modern dairy plants, the emphasis has shifted to conducting investigations on newer and larger-scale methods of ghee manufacture which could profitably be adopted for routine ghee production by these dairies instead of the desi method used in the dairy. There are five methods of Ghee Processing: It is an age-old process adopted mainly in rural areas/villages and at urban household levels because of simplicity in equipment and technique. This traditional method of making ghee contributes about 80% of the total ghee produced in the country. This method usually involves two routes- (1) Lactic acid fermentation of raw or heated milk is followed by the churning of curd into Makkhan (butter) . (2) Separation of malai (clotted cream) from the boiled milk and its churning into butter which is further heated to make ghee. 2. Direct Creamery method: The direct cream method is a commercial ghee manufacturing process. Here a kettle is used to boil the milk cream. These kettles are mostly made of steel, and they come with a steam-heated jacket and fixed with an agitator, a steam regulator valve, pressure, and temperature gauging devices and a portable, hollow, stainless-steel tube with central boring for draining out the contents. 3. Creamery-Butter Method In this method, unsalted creamery butter or white butter or cooking butter is used as a raw material for ghee making. First, the butter mass is melted at 60° C. The molten butter is pumped into the ghee boiler. The steam pressure is increased slowly to PMG DESIGN+BUILD FOOD FACTORIES. ONE STOP ENGINEERING SOLUTION READ MORE....

Conclusion is broadly prepared by Ghee is an essential part of Indian diet, religious, ceremonial function, and therapeutic purposes. Ghee two methods: traditional method and industrial method viz. creamery-butter method, direct cream method, pre-stratification method, and continuous method. On the word of market dynamics, more than 90% of the ghee is produced by traditional method by unorganized sectors in India by making makkhan and then converting it into ghee. Butter is produced from aged cream of 38 to 40% fat using continuous butter making machine or batch churn. Butter is then transferred to butter Melter, and melt at 80°C. This molten butter is kept undisturbed in a ghee kettle or boiler at a temperature of 80-85°C for 30 min. 5. Cream de-emulsification method: This method of continuous ghee making is based on the principle of de-emulsification of fat in cream from oil-in-water phase to water-in-oil phase. In this process, milk is separated into the cream of 40% fat using a centrifugal cream separator a clarifixator. This cream is further concentrated in a concentrator which work under centrifugal force. Hazards in Ghee Processing 1. Physical Hazards An extraneous matter like Foreign Particle, dust, dirt, glass, stone etc. due to low storage, environment. ·Very fine particles in ghee due to improper settling. 2. Chemical Hazard ·Probable Cross-contamination may occur from remaining cleaning agent. residues due to unclean pipelines. ·Polymer Migration from packaging Material. ·Cross-contamination due to residue of cleaning chemicals.
