Quality Characteristics and Yield Predictive
Models of Goat Cheeses
Determine the effects of
milk composition and somatic cell counts on
the quality and yield of goat cheese and
develop yield predictive models for goat cheeses
(French soft, Colby, and Mozzarella).
Characterize Colby or
Mozzarella cheeses in terms of
composition, microstructure, rheological properties,
protein profiles, and sensory characteristics
as affected by seasonal variations of milk
composition and property changes during cheesestorage.
