Department of Food Technology and Biochemistry, Faculty of Agriculture, Belgrade-Zemun (1,2,3)


The influence of pH (6.5 and 5.8), amount of added CaCl2 (0, 200 and 400 mg/l)), coagulation temperature (30ºC and 35ºC) and heat treatment of milk (65ºC/30 min and 87ºC/10 min) on the rate of rennet induced milk coagulation (s) were investigated. The time (s) from rennet addition to onset of gelation (as indicated by the first visible floccules) was measured.
