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
cheese storage.
