The Effects of Heat Treatment on Milk
Heat treatment, depending on the processing conditions, can result in irreversible changes in milk protein structure. When milk is heated at temperatures above 65 C whey proteins unfold and expose previously hidden hydrophobic groups (Croguennec, Kennedy, & Mehra, 2004).
