TECHNOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF FILLING AND PACKING YOGHURT

  Yoghurts are varied: fruit, diet, fat-free, nutritious, fortified with vitamins, with flakes, berries, chocolate and muesli. And they are, without a doubt, the favorite treat of millions of people. Both children and adults have yogurt for breakfast or light supper, as a healthy snack during the day or as perfect dressing for fruit salad, vegetables, meat or porridge. It is ideal for creating delicacies in the kitchen.
 There are short shelf life yoghurts and long shelf life yoghurts depending on the processing method. Products after heat treatment do not have lactic acid bacteria at all, and therefore can be stored up to 30 days after production. Preservatives extend the storage time significantly.
