Abstract: UHT hydrolysed-lactose milk (HLM) is prone to chemical changes, giving rise to off-flavours in the product. To investigate this better, headspace solid-phase micro-extraction gas chromatography (HS-SPME/GCeMS) was applied to monitor the volatiles profile of HLM during production and shelf-life. Optimum extraction conditions for volatiles were explored, focussing on compounds affecting milk aroma. This study is the first investigating industrial scale manufacturing under controlled conditions, allowing direct a…
