Study on the Preservation of Raw Milk with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) for Rural Dairy Farmers

B. K. Saha, M.Y. Ali, M. Chakraborty, Z. Islam and A. K. Hira


The experiment was conducted to judge the feasibility of hydrogen peroxide as milk preservation. The experiment milk sample collected from Bangladesh Agricultural University Dairy Farm and were divided into seven portions. Six portions were preserved with 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04, 0.05 and 0.06% H2O2. The reaming portion was preserved without H2O2 and considered as control sample. Some physical and chemical parameters were measured from all samples just before preservation and then regularly after certain time interval up to spoilage. From the results of physical and chemical tests, it was observed that keeping quality of milk samples with H2O2 increased significantly when compared with untreated milk samples. It was concluded that 0.04 to 0.05% H2O2 is enough to preserve milk sample up to 24 hours.
