Find out just how odd things get in this hilarious New York Times bestselling story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young.

This comprehensive book provides a thoroughly updated and expanded treatment of dairy microbiology from basic information on dairy foods to special topics, including the microbiology of milk, producing animals, probiotics, and conversion of why into useful products. Applied Dairy Microbiology discusses the microbiology of the rumen and the role of microorganisms in milk synthesis explores the causes and contamination of raw milk which offers solutions to problems associated with raw mild, fluid milk products, concentrated and dried milk. A dairy is a building used for the harvesting of animal milk mostly from cows or goats but also from buffalo sheep horses or camels for human consumption. A dairy is typically located on a dedicated dairy farm or section of a multipurpose farm that is concerned with the harvesting of milk. Terminology differs between countries. For example a farm building where milk is harvesting is often called a milking Parlor. Milk and milk products occupy a more significant role in the human food profiles. The study of microorganisms that are associated with milk and milk products in all aspects is defined as Dairy Microbiology. Milk is described as a whole, fresh, clean, lacteal secretion obtained from the complete milking of healthy milch animal containing the minimum prescribed levels of fat and solids non-fat. The present book provides thorough coverage of dairy microbiology principles as well as practical applications including the latest developments in dairy starter cultures and genetic engineering techniques. The book also offers completely updated standards for good manufacturing practice, quality control and product development practices.

Milk is the one food that sustains life and promotes growth in all newborn mammals, including the human infant. By its very nature, milk is nutritious. Despite this, it has received surprisingly little attention from those interested in the cultural impact of food. In this fascinating volume, Stuart Patton convincingly argues that milk has become of such importance and has so many health and cultural implications that everyone should have a basic understanding of it. This book provides this much-needed introduction. Patton's approach to his subject is comprehensive. He begins with how milk is made in the lactating cell, and proceeds to the basics of cheese making and ice cream manufacture. He also gives extensive consideration to human milk, including breasts, lactation, and infant feeding. Pro and con arguments about the healthfulness of cows' milk are discussed at length and with documentation. Patton explores the growing gap between the public's impressions of milk, and known facts about milk and dairy foods. He argues that the layperson's understanding of milk has deteriorated as a result of propaganda from activists anxious to destroy milk's favorable image, misinformation in the media, and scare implications from medical research hypotheses. Stuart Patton is professor emeritus of food science at Pennsylvania State University.
