Pasteurization

Post by J0hio » Mon Jul 18, 2005 5:39 am

how much chemical alteration occurs as a result of this process (pasteurization).

For example if a cheese were pasteurized would it be necessary to supplement with artificial ingredients to replace lost content, to what extent and for what would you have to supplement also by what means.

The highest temperature for pasteurization is 70 °C if I am not mistaken. Some nutrients will be damaged and some others will remain okay depend on their nature, I think :?
