Physicochemical Parameters of Probiotic Yoghurt with Bioactive Natural Products from Sea Buckthorn

Open access


Probiotic dairy products are part of functional foods, which are made from fermented milk selected from a culture or a concentrate of bacteria that improve the microbial balance in the gut. These products have positive and beneficial influence on health and integrity of the human body. In the present study regarding the fortification with oil and pulp of sea buckthorn, was to obtained product similar to the conventional yoghurt, consistency and texture aimed at reducing heat treatments and stages technology in order to preserve nutritional quality. This research focused on optimizing the technology for obtaining yoghurt and selecting the best options regarding the addition of sea buckthorn pulp or oil, based on the following parameters : acidity, pH and lactic acid. At the same time we aimed to obtain probiotic yoghurt ,to make comparative studies on major parameters and to select the optimal probiotic yoghurt with sea bucktorn that give a good stabilization.
