- How are the products manufactured?
The process starts with the collection of milk from the farmers. The collected milk is then transported to chilling centres and stored. The milk goes through the process of pasteurization, homogenization and standardization. After this process is complete, the milk is ready to manufacture various dairy products.
- How does Jersey ensure the highest quality for milk and the milk products?
All the milk collected goes through a grading test i.e. Organoleptic Test, which is basically a milk analyzer test. The milk is also tested for adulterants. The temperature on milk, Fat and SnF, heat stability and acidity of milk is also checked to ensure that the best milk goes for chilling. These screening methods ensure that only the top quality milk is retained. After the grading process, the milk is chilled immediately to retain freshness.

- What are the various processing measures the milk goes though?
Generally, there are 4 major processing steps which are followed in milk
Pasteurization- The milk is heated to a specific temperature for a specified time. This is done to destroy any already present or potential harmful pathogens.
- UHT Pasteurization- Ultra-high temperature (UHT) milk is pasteurized at a much higher temperature to make it sterile.
- Homogenization- This takes place after the pasteurization and ensures that the milk fat is not separated from the fluid milk. A creamy, smooth and uniform milk texture is created.
- Fortification- Finally, the milk is fortified to replace the nutrients lost while processing or to increase the nutritional value by the addition of nutrients.
The milk is then chilled and packed for delivery.
- What is the composition of milk?
Milk comprises of 87% water, 4% fat and 9% SNF (Solid-not-fats). While fat is responsible for thickness, creaminess and nutrition in milk; the energy in milk comes from its SNF and gives milk/curd, good texture. This includes protein, lactose and mineral matter.
