DAIRY & DAIRY PRODUCTS

Milk is often regarded as being nature’s most complete food. It earns this reputation by providing many of the nutrients which are essential for the growth of the human body. However, milk is also a perishable commodity and spoils very easily. Its low acidity and high nutrient content make it the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, including those (pathogens) which cause food poisoning. Milk can be kept for longer periods of time if it is heated to destroy the bacteria or cooled to slow their growth. Pasteurization and sterilization are the two most commonly used treatments for milk preservation.

Find below the list of dairy commodities and countries from which they can be imported into Fiji.

 LIST OF DAIRY & DAIRY PRODUCTS:

No. Name of Dairy Product Description Country
1 Infant Formula Cow milk protein-based formulas. Most infant formula is made with cow’s milk that’s been altered to resemble breast milk.

Protein hydrolysate formulas: These types of formulas contain protein that’s been broken down (hydrolyzed) partially or extensively into smaller sizes than those in cow’s milk and soy-based formulas.

Protein hydrolysate formulas are meant for babies who do not tolerate cow’s milk or soy-based formulas.

Australia, New Zealand

 

2 Butter Butter is a solid dairy product made by churning fresh or fermented cream or milk, to separate the butterfat from the buttermilk. It is generally used as a spread on plain or toasted bread products and a condiment on cooked vegetables, as well as in cooking, such as baking, sauce making, and pan frying.  Butter consists of butterfat, milk proteins and water. Australia & New Zealand
3 Clarified Butter/Ghee Ghee is prepared by simmering butter, which is churned from cream, and removing the liquid residue. Spices    can   be    added   for flavor. The texture, color, and taste of ghee depend on the quality of the butter, source of the milk used in the process and the duration of the boiling. Australia & New Zealand
4 Cultured milk/ Fermented milk Fermented milk products, also known as cultured dairy foods, cultured dairy products, or cultured milk products, are dairy foods that have been fermented with lactic acid bacteria such as Lactobacillus, Lactococcus, and Leuconostoc. The fermentation process increases the shelf-life of the product, while enhancing the taste and improving the digestibility of milk. Australia & New Zealand
5 Yoghurt 

 

Yoghurt is a food produced by bacterial fermentation of milk. The bacteria used to make yogurt are known as “yogurt cultures”.

Fermentation of lactose by these bacteria produces lactic acid, which acts on milk protein to give yogurt its texture and the characteristic tang.

Cow’s milk is commonly available worldwide, and, as such, is the milk most commonly used to make yogurt.

Australia & New Zealand
Curd Curd is a dairy product obtained by coagulating milk in a process called curdling. The coagulation can be caused by adding rennet or any edible acidic substance such as lemon juice or vinegar, and then allowing it to sit. The increased acidity causes the milk proteins (casein) to tangle into solid masses, or curds. Australia & New Zealand
6 Evaporated Milk Evaporated Milk is a shelf- stable canned milk product with about 60% of the water removed from fresh milk. The process involves the evaporation of 60% of the water from the milk, followed by homogenization, canning, and heat-sterilization. Australia & New Zealand
7 Sweetened condensed milk Condensed milk is cow’s milk from which water has been removed. It is most often found in the form of sweetened condensed milk (SCM), with sugar added, and the two terms “condensed milk” and “sweetened condensed milk” are often used synonymously today.

Sweetened condensed milk is a very thick, sweet product which when canned can last for years without refrigeration if unopened

Australia. New Zealand, Malaysia & Singapore
7 Milk powders, Whey powders &Cream powders Milk powders and cream powder are milk products which can be obtained by the partial removal of water from milk or cream. Powdered milk or dried milk is a manufactured dairy product made by evaporating milk to dryness. One purpose of drying milk is to preserve it; milk powder has a far longer shelf life than liquid milk and does not need to be refrigerated, due to its low moisture content.

Powdered milk and dairy products include such items  as dry whole milk, nonfat (skimmed) dry milk, dry buttermilk, dry  whey products and dry  dairy blends

Australia & New Zealand

the substance obtained by the partial removal of sufficient non-protein constituents (lactose and minerals) from skim milk so that the finished dry product contains 90% or more protein by weight. MPI may be produced by filtration (Microfiltration, Ultrafiltration & Diafiltration), dialysis or any other process by which all or part of the lactose is removed by a safe and suitable procedure. It contains the casein and whey proteins in their original proportions found in milk, without combining separately produced casein (caseinate) and whey proteins. Zealand & USA
13 Liquid milk Milk is considered as an ideal food for kids, aged peoples and ailing people. It is rich in carbohydrate primarily lactose, protein mainly casein and fat. Milk is pasteurized to make it safe to drink. Pasteurization kill all microorganism and increases the shelf life of the product. Australia & New Zealand
14 Chocolates  Chocolate is a typically sweet, usually brown, food preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds, roasted and ground, often flavored, as with vanilla. It is made in the form of a liquid, paste, or in a block, or used as a flavoring ingredient in other foods. Milk chocolate is sweet chocolate that additionally contains milk powder or condensed milk.
