The milk is curdled by the addition of lactic acid. Lactic acid can be produced by special strains of bacteria which are added to the milk for this purpose. These bacteria produce lactic acid through fermentation.<br />The bacteria used in yoghurt making are Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaris. S. thermophilus is added first to lower the pH for the acid-loving L. bulgaris to grow. Together the bacteria produce enough acid to curdle the milk. <br />Method<br />Take a clean pot and label with your name and the date<br />Fill 2/3 of the pot with UHT<br />Dissolve 1 teaspoon of milk powder into the milk<br />Add 1 teaspoon of yoghurt to the milk<br />Test the pH and make a note of it<br />Put the lid on and place in the water bath at 35 degrees C <br />Results<br />pH of the milk + starter culture:______________<br />pH of the yoghurt: ______________<br />Conclusion:<br />Using the information above, explain why the pH is different at the beginning of the experiment to the pH at the end of the experiment?<br />
