Antioxidant, Some Flavor Components, Microbiological and Microstructure Characteristics of Corn Milk Yoghurt

Authors: Ateteallah Hassan Ateteallah, Amna Abul-Kasem Abbas Osma

Corn milk is considered as a new innovation especially in the making of yoghurt based products. The present study was conducted to study antioxidants components such as (phenols compounds and DPPH scavenging activity), total volatile free fatty acids, microbiological and microstructure characteristics in yoghurt samples produced from two different ratios of buffalos and corn milk (70:30 coded A and 60:40 coded B) respectively. Results indicated that the increasing ratio of corn milk led to increase the content of phenolic components and DPPH scavenging activity. Total viable content decreased in samples (70:30 and 60:40). Streptococci and lactobacilli count decreased by the increase of corn milk in produced samples. Results also show that the trend of yeasts content was the opposite ones. Election microscopy examination revealed that adding corn milk to yoghurt had more smoothly and systematically distributed casein with a bit coarse structure less porosity in the network of casein. From these results could be concluded that adding 40% corn milk during processing of yoghurt is increasing the antioxidant activity and improves the microstructure as well.
