Digital milk analyzers to determine milk components, fat content measurement on dairy farms, milk collection centers, laboratories and cheese makers

  1. 1. 1 Digital Milk Analysers “Ekomilk” to determine milk composition, ingredients Introduction for dairy farms, milk processors and milk collection centers besides milk quality control laboratories and veterinarians 21 October 2015 Canada/Bulgaria Website: www.ekomilk.eu
  2. 2. Oct2015 Milk nutrients analysis www.ekomilk.eu 2 How many Ekomilk users are there worldwide to date (Oct 2015)?
  3. 3. Oct2015 Milk nutrients analysis www.ekomilk.eu 3 More than 100000 happy Ekomilk users. Every user is important to us.
  4. 4. Oct2015 Milk nutrients analysis www.ekomilk.eu 4 “Ekomilk” end-users, applications and background
  5. 5. Oct2015 Digital Ekomilk analysers 5 Typical Ekomilk end-users • Milk producers, dairy farms (cow, sheep, goat, buffalo , other), cooperatives, often as a complement to the official laboratory analyses • Milk collection points, tank trucks and tank trailers for milk collection/hauling, see next slides • Milk processors: cheese, yoghurt, lassi/kefir, ice cream • Veterinarians • DVM vets • Independent vet cabinets • Pharmaceutical organisations, to prove the effectiveness of e.g. Antibiotics and other treatments • In labs, milk quality control centers, DHI (dairy herd improvement)
  6. 6. Oct2015 Digital Ekomilk analysers 6 Typical Ekomilk end-users • Nutritionists, udder hygiene, feed additive and animal health specialists • Laboratories: • On farm, • In pharmaceutical companies, • Official government milk quality control labs, milk payment organisations • At milk processors • Universities and agriculture schools and institutes • Research organisations
  7. 7. Oct2015 Digital Ekomilk analysers 7 Typical applications • Often as a complement to , or replacement of, official laboratory analyses (DHI etc) • Determining the milk ingredients (milk components, milk composition): fats, proteins, SNF, added water, pH, conductivity, total milk solids • Measuring of fat contents: • Definition: the proportion of milk (by weight) made up by butterfat • Also called fat percentage • Ekomilk measures fats usually from 0.5-12%, +/- 0.1% • The exact range depends on the instrument version and configuration For instance there is a difference between raw milk and homogenized (processed, which is often also pasteurized) milk • The accuracy of Ekomilk milk parameters is guaranteed for most samples within the specs and the conditions mentioned in the manual for tank milk, sometimes after finetuning by the end-user of the factory calibration (there is a digital calibration menu in each Ekomilk) • Many comparisons have been performed, with classsical methods like Babcock test or Gerber Method besides Fossomatic and other official methods
  8. 8. Oct2015 Digital Ekomilk analysers 8 Milk fat percentage: background • Milk fat is composed of a complex mixture of lipids. Triglycerides are the major type of lipid in milk fat. Triglycerides are composed of three fatty acids covalently bound to a glycerol molecule by ester bonds. Milk fat is the major source of lipid used by the neonate mammal for accumulating body adipose in the initial days after birth. • Milk fat is secreted from mammary epithelial cells as fat globules which are primarily composed of a globule of triglyceride surrounded by a lipid bilayer membrane similar to the apical membrane of the epithelial cells. http://ansci.illinois.edu/static/ansc438/Milkcompsynth/milkcomp_fat.html
  9. 9. Oct2015 Digital Ekomilk analysers 9 Fat percentage, applications • Types of milk analyzed: next slide • Milk fat content is important for, ao.: • Milk payment at milk collection center • Animal health diagnosis; together with proteins or other parameters, ketose, acidosis and other diseases can be detected • Genetic selection, breeding planning • Cheese making: the butterfat content often determines the flavor and texture in the final cheese • Cheese making, milk processing: the yield is determined (ao, caseins aswell) by total milk solids • Other milk processing: yogurt, ice cream, lassi, kefir etc Comment from an Ekomilk user-cheese maker in France: “Thanks to my Ekomilk instrument, I now determine the milk composition (ingredients, parameters) within 40 seconds, no need to wait for external lab results, no need for external milk sample collection nor milk sample transport. Much lower costs, much higher operation efficiency for my staff thanks to Ekomilk.”
  10. 10. Oct2015 Digital Ekomilk analysers 10 Types of milk measured • Half and half , Whole milk or regular milk, reduced fat milk, low fat milk, Skim milk or nonfat milk, Channel Island milk or breakfast milk, Semi-skimmed milk, full fat milk • Pasteurized, homogenized, processed, raw or cream (after dilution) • Reconstituted powder milk • Cow, goat, sheep, buffalo • Other: custom, please contact us We calibrate every Ekomilk instrument in our factory before shipment. Therefore, when ordering , please clearly specify which milk you want to measure.
  11. 11. Oct2015 Digital Ekomilk analysers 11 Milk collection or hauling • Each Ekomilk has a 12VDC power plug and cable for using the car or tanker truck power supply • Such Ekomilk measurement system in the tanker truck allows immediate milk fat/proteins/pH/... content measurement when collecting the milk at the farm or at the collection center • In some countries, Ekomilk has also installed a milk payment calculation system which communicates with banks over GPRS, CDMA or UMTS
