The rennet coagulation mechanism of skim milk as observed by transmission diffusing wave spectroscopy.


The technique of forward-scattering diffusing wave spectroscopy has been used to study the rennet-induced gelation of skim milk. The results allow the comparison of a colloidal suspension at a realistic concentration (Phi approximately 10%) compared with well-established measurements made on highly-diluted milk samples. It is shown that the partially… (More)
