Abstract


Qualitative studies on chhana were carried out at Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam during the year 2011-12. Two milk sources (i.e. cow milk and buffalo milk) and three coagulants (i.e. acetic acid, citric acid and lactic acid) were used during the study period. Physical characteristics such as titratable acidity and pH values. Preliminary, the chhana was prepared from each of cow and buffalo milk coagulated with acetic acid, citric acid, and/or lactic acid each at 0.5, 1, 2 and 4% concentration level. Among each coagulant, concentration level showed significant influence on the acceptability score of chhana. Product made with 0.5% concentration level perceived the better acceptability (score). A remarkable influence of milk source was observed in pH values of chhana prepared from cow milk and buffalo milk either with acetic acid (5.65±0.01 and 5.45±0.01, respectively) or with citric acid (5.52±0.02 and 5.45±0.01, respectively). In this study, buffalo milk chhana was found better in all aspects compared to that of cow milk.
