Influence of Particle Size and Particle Shape on the Flowability of Commercial Skim Milk PowdersBecause of the numerous application as food ingredient skim milk powder is of prime economically importance among milk powders in Germany. However, the ease of powder handling, which is determined by the flow properties, is often not regarded as a real quality attribute. To better understand the powder handling characteristic of skim milk powders this work deals with flowability measurement of commercial skim milk powders by using shear cell testing technique. Furthermore relationships between particle size, particle shape and flowability data are highlighted.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
