STK MAKINA Ferment Dosing Tube
A yogurt ferment dosing tube is a device used in the production of yogurt to add a specific amount of live culture to the milk. The dosing tube is typically filled with a concentrated culture and then inserted into the milk, where it releases the culture into the milk.
This allows for precise control over the amount of culture added to the milk, which helps ensure consistent and high-quality yogurt production. The dosing tube can also be used to add other ingredients like flavors and probiotics to yogurt.
Yogurt ferment dosing tubes are typically used in the commercial production of yogurt. They are used to dispense a precise amount of yogurt starter culture into the milk that is being used to make yogurt. The starter culture contains live bacteria, such as Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, which ferment the lactose in the milk, creating lactic acid and thickening the milk into yogurt.
The dosing tube allows for accurate and consistent dosing of the starter culture, which helps to ensure that the yogurt produced is of consistent quality.
What is Yogurt?
Yogurt is a fermented dairy product made from milk and a live culture of bacteria. The bacteria, typically Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, ferment the lactose in the milk and produce lactic acid, which thickens the milk and gives yogurt its characteristic tangy flavor. Yogurt is a good source of protein, calcium, and probiotics and is commonly consumed as a breakfast food or used as an ingredient in cooking and baking.
