  The milk contains many essential nutrients. Very rich in proteins, fats, carbohydrates and minerals, the milk occupies a very important place in our diet. This study aims to identify and evaluated the hygienic and physicochemical qualities of raw and reconstituted milk, in the region of Guelma, Algeria. A total of 90 samples were collected and analyzed (for both types of milk: Raw and reconstituted milk). Physicochemical analysis of temperature, acidity, fat, proteins, lactose, density, solids and Solids-Non-Fat (SNF) was performed. Microbiological quality was evaluated by performing Total Mesophilic Aerobic Bacteria (TMAB) tests and the organoleptic qualities (odor or color) were also evaluated. Finally, the stability and reproducibility of raw and reconstituted milk properties for a period of three months was evaluated. The results obtained in this study indicate that raw and reconstituted milk shows a physicochemical and bacteriological quality that meets international and national standards. However, a slight variability was recorded on the stability of physicochemical parameters during the three months of the experiment.

  Background and Objective: Examination of the relation between dairy products consumption and consumer behavior is important, due to the importance of these products for health and also for economy. The objective of the study was to analyze the consumer behavior in regard to milk and dairy products and possibly identify effects of different variables on consumer decision upon purchase of milk and milk products. Methodology: A total of 326 random households located in urban, semi-urban and rural areas were selected. A survey protocol was used to collect data on milk consumption (perception before purchase and real consumption) using questionnaires. In this study, consumer’s dairy products behavior consumption in the region of Guelma (Algeria) was studied, using different socio-economic variables assessed by so-called evaluation criteria 1-5. Contingency analysis were used to analyze indicator’s perception of consumers about milk and milk products using classification criteria’s. Factors determining the yearly quantitative consumption were analyzed, using a covariance analysis. Results: For perception analysis, the most important socio-economic variables explaining individual differences in consumer behaviors were: Taste trust, health benefits, packaging, type of shop, brand, the origin of product and publicity. For consumption analysis, results revealed highly variable levels of milk and dairy products consumption: (1) Average consumption of milk equivalents was reached 162±113 kg (101 kg of drinking milk, 16.87 of yogurt, 21 of butter and 21.81 of the remaining products), (2) Consumption of pasteurized milk was 65.03 kg person–1 year–1, (3) Raw milk consumption was significantly higher in the rural than in the urban areas (p<0.05) and (4) Consumption of pasteurized packaged milk and Ultra High Temperature (UHT) milk was significantly higher in urban areas (p<0.05). Moreover, a covariance analysis allowed the identification of 4 major factors in the variation of dairy products consumption: The geographic area (43.98%), the number of children per household (20.80%), the income level (20.76%) and the price (9.17%). Conclusion: It is concluded that assessment of consumer behavior can contribute to a better understanding consumption behavior, which can be used as a useful indicator of market orientation, in the aim to increase dairy products consumption.

  Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical compound extensively employed to manufacture certain plastics and epoxy resin. Due to his hormone-like properties, the BPA can disrupt endocrine function in humans and animals. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the International scientific community launched a broad program, to evaluate and investigate the adversely potential effect of BPA, on human endocrine pathways and health. Consequently, the BPA have been banned in several industrialized countries (France, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden etc.). However, in Algeria BPA still an unknown substance by the public and health professionals. This compound is not subject to any specific regulations. Currently, the debate concerning interdiction or/no interdiction is reported. The purpose of this mini-review is: (a) To provide the reader with the weight of evidence, current regulatory stance, regarding the safe use of BPA in industrials countries and (b) To show the absence of debate, evaluation and legislation in Algeria.
