Why does Pasturised Milk go sour quickley if it is not kept in the refrigerator?
The pasteurization process eliminates the bacteria present in milk but does not remove the enzymes responsible for milk breakdown. These enzymes require energy to work which is why milk goes sour faster at higher temperatures.

Milk sours because of the acid inside of it. No, pasturized milk does not sour as fast becasue of the bacterium that went away in the process of pasturization.
In recipes, soured milk created by the addition of an acid or by bacterial fermentation can often be used interchangeably. For example, 1 cup of cultured buttermilk, a soured milk produced by bacterial fermentation, can be substituted with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar plus enough milk to m…ake 1 cup. The chemically soured milk can be used after standing for 5 minutes. (MORE)
Yes, it is a chemical change. Milk contains sugar in the form ofLactose, which on microbial action breaks down to Lactic acid. Thislactic acid lowers the pH of the milk making it sour.
Milk, whether it is sour or not, is a mixture and thus does not have a chemical formula. It is made sour by lactic acid, which has the formula C 3 H 6 O 3 .
It is bacteria that causes it to go sour. The bacteria uses up the milk, then they produce acids that cause the milk to spoil. Spoiled milk includes a foul smell and lumpy chunks. If milk is spoiled for too long, the milk may even turn green.
The souring and curdling of milk is caused by bacteria.These bacteria utilize all the nutrients, i.e., glucose and other vitamins, and produce acids as a waste product. That's why milks go sour; it's because of the acids produced by bacteria. Cheese was milk, which curdled but lavishly sprinkled wit…h salt and compacted. Although this is so, you cannot just put salt into your sour milk as commercial cheese uses cultured bacteria which are laboratory-tested for a specific use. Making cheese from sour milk will just give you food poisoning. (MORE)
milk turn sour because it has expose to high temperature, and when it turn to high temperature it will turn sour fast because of the acid that's in it.
Milk going sour is an example of the oxidation process. The exampleof the oxidation process in sour milk is a result of the effect ofoxygen on the milk which causes the milk to sour.
How long milk will last in the refrigerator will depend upon its microbiological quality and the amount of cumulative temperature abuse it has experienced. If the milk has been handled properly, started out with a low bacteriological load and has not been contaminated, it may last for another 2 week…s or even longer after the sell-by date on the package.

Yes. It tastes bad, and if it has been sour for a long time bacteria MAY have grown in it. Many recipes call for sour milk, and if none is on hand it can be soured by using lemon juice or vinegar. In some countries, a treat is to eat sour milk over boiled potatoes. To most people it doesn't taste go…od, but if the milk was pastuerized it won't hurt to drink it or use it in a recipe.. My coffee tasted odd today, not bad but somewhat tart. Then I noticed hours later that the milk I added to it smelled bad. It's been 6 hours since I had my first cup of coffee with the sour milk and I feel fine but in the future I would never intentionally drink sour milk. If the milk smells bad just throw it out. It's not worth risking getting sick or messing up your digestive system. At some point the milk will make you sick if it has turned bad, but apparently my sour milk had not reached that stage. (MORE)
There aren't many disadvantages unless you are trying to makespecific raw cheeses where the bacterial activity is needed.
Yes, sour milk is an acid. The lactic acid makes the milk acidic, milk is said to be sour when it is at a pH level of 4.3-4.5 (acidic). Yes, sour milk is an acid. The lactic acid makes the milk acidic, milk is said to be sour when it is at a pH level of 4.3-4.5 (acidic)
It is a chemical change because there is a chemical reactionoccurring that is rotting the milk. An example of a physical changewould be if the milk was evaporated or frozen.
Freeze it. Or keep the refrigerator turned on really cold to make it last longer; you can always freeze part of it or buy a smaller sized carton if it goes sour too fast for you.
When milk is left at room temperature the reason it spoils is dueto the bacteria in the air. The bacteria called Lactobacillusconverts the lactose in milk into lactic acid which makes it sour.When milk is refrigerated the bacteria growth is prevented.
The bacteria which lay dormant in a chilled environment (4 - 1 degree c) reproduce at a high rate when the milks ambient temperature increases. This bacteria makes the milk sour. In recent years improved methods of destroying these trace bacteria have been undertaken which has allowed milk to stay f…resher longer under correct refrigeration (MORE)
Extremely hot food shouldn't be put directly into the refrigerator.This is because it can put a strain on your fridge, as it messeswith the even air flow. Hot food can also cause other items to warmup. This can allow for bacterial growth to occur in other foods.
Sour milk is a chemical change because it cannot return back toregular milk. It contains bacteria an will continue to change.
'Soured' means: lactic acid is (microbiologically) formed out of lactose: (THIS is a chemical change) C 12 H 22 O 11 --> (among other compounds) C 3 H 6 O 3 by anaerobic homofermentative Lactobacillus spp . IUPAC name: 2-hydroxypropanoic acid = lactic acid = CH 3 CHOHCOOH
Acer-phobia the fear of things tasting the are sour from being spoiled or rotten when tasted without prompting. Milk gone bad. things curdling without purpose or the aged bitter sour tastes from etc. items.
No Your right sour milk can never be too sour for an recipe.. I agree with you on that one.
Possible to kill the 'bad' bacteria in the milk that may have formed, this will not however reverse the process of the milk being off.. Possible to kill the 'bad' bacteria in the milk that may have formed, this will not however reverse the process of the milk being off.
Cute. Cows are not designed for milk storage and will become extremely uncomfortable if not milked regularly.
warmer temperatures will cause the milk to sour faster because the enzymes that cause the protein breakdown into amino acids (hence the sourness) have an optimum temperature at which they work and this is usually just above body temperature. That is why milk is stored in the fridge.
if you just leave it out on the counter or in the sun. or you couldput vinegar or lemon juice in it and let it stand.
After a couple weeks like 2 or 3 more likely your milk will get lumpy and even smell horile. Then and there milk is sour.
The lactic acid bacteria that are present in the milk have grown and increased the acidity of the milk, thus souring it.
If you drank sour milk, then you might get an upset stomach due to the raised amount of bacteria.
Milk is sour because it is spoiled and how milk spoils is if you leave it out so long that it will get so spoiled and it will smell so funny that you will wanna take it out of your refrigerator. So that is why milk is so sour.[ IF YOU DISAGREE TO ANY OF THIS MAKE YOU AN ACCOUNT AND CORRECT ME AND I …WILL SEE WHAT YOU SAY AND ADD THAT TO WHY MILK SPOILS]. (MORE)
Simply, fermentation happens. Milk contains bacteria. When the milk is not refrigerated, the bacteria are very happy and their populations grow. The metabolism of the bacteria lowers the pH of the milk, thus souring it. This will eventually happen to fresh milk that is refrigerated, too. The co…ld only slows the growth and does not stop it.

Yogurt Yogurt, like most dairy products now, contains a various amounts of fat. There is non-fat (0% fat), low-fat (usually 2% fat) and plain or whole milk yogurt (4% fat). Yogurt is made by fermenting a milk with bacteria (a lactobacillus and a streptococcus species). These bacteria are happy …to oblige in helping make the yogurt and are not dangerous to humans - in fact, it can aid with digestion. 4 ounces whole milk yogurt = 68 calories, 4 fat, 2g sat fat, (MORE)
curd contains lactobacillus bacteria and milk contains lactose. hence, when even a little bit of curd is added to the milk, the lactobacillus bacteria multiplies, and converts lactose into lactic acid. this reduces the ph and also leads to the curdling of the milk protein. this explains why curd tas…tes sour. hence, when milk is kept in sun the multiplication of the lactobacillus increases, causing the milk to get sour faster.

It's probably from something that is or was spoiled. I think it's also because something could have spilled that was spoiled and the smell stayed with it. To get rid of it try using Baking Soda.
Milk is refrigerated to delay spoilage. Milk contains bacteria and the bacteria will continue to grow, even under refrigeration. It spoils much faster at warmer temperatures.
No, sour milk becomes sour due to the presence of an acid known as lactic acid.
Milk contains bacteria. Bacteria reproduces. When bacteria reproduces it lowers the pH of milk. When the pH of milk is lowered, Milk tastes sour. Bacteria reproduces faster at room temperature than it does at cold temperatures. So. Your milk will last longer in a refrigerator.
no it does not keep milk from going sour and if it did why would you put it in your milk.
Sour milk is more acid than nomal milk. Lower pH = acid. Higher pH = alkali.
Why does milk remain unspoiled for two weeks when refrigerated but turns sour when left at a room temperature after a couple of days?
Fridge temp is around 44 F, much lower than room temp. Spoilage occurs much more rapidly in warmer temps than in cooler temps.
It is biological. Bacteria reproduce in the milk (which is sterile if pasturised, but unsterile the moment you open it). The combination of the bacteria themselves, and the chemicals they release, render it "sour".
it is made from certain bacteria in cream and milk that is not bad for you so yes it is made with rotten milk.
Pasteur, who gave his name to the method of heating liquids to get them rid of bacterias.
Sour milk is milk that is off. You drink, you get diarrhoea. So don't drink sour milk.
Milk bacteria use lactose as an energy source, they change it into lactic acid, which makes the milk taste sour. For what it's worth, lactic acid is the same substance that accumulates in our muscles during intense "aerobic" exercise and makes them feel like they're burning. To produce lacti…c acid, the bacteria must first split lactose into its two component, simple sugars, glucose and lactose. These can diffuse into to bacterial cells and be used as energy sources. The principal protein of milk ï¿½ casein ï¿½ turns into curd in this acid environment, so another way of describing sour milk is to say it "curdled." Both the lactose and the protein are used by the bacteria to produce additional bacterial cells. Eventually, other kinds of bacteria (and even molds, if air is available) may grow in the milk and make protein derivatives that smell really bad; this is called "putrefaction." (MORE)
sour milk can be substituted for whole milk... if you want to get sick and have diarrhea. you'll lose tons of weight and might go to the hospital but you'll look great and thin!
Milk turns sour in serious thunderstorms due to activity of bacteria who multiplied faster in presence of sound waves.
The famous scientist Luis Pasteur discovered the above method and vaccine. This method of milk sterilization is called as pasteurization.
There are many: Sour cream, cottage cheese (and all other forms ofcheese), yoghurt, kumis (fermented mares milk). kefir
Because the bacteria that cause souring continue to grow, but theygrow at a slower rate in the refrigerator as compared to theirgrowth rate at higher temperatures. Although pasteurization removespathogens, other viable microbes will remain though at reducedpopulations.
If you don't mind having your milk grow bacteria, turn sour, thenbecome a runny and sour version of cottage cheese; leave it out ofthe refrigerator all the time. Depending on the type of bacteriagrowing in the milk it could just be unpleasantly sour or it couldmake you sick or possibly kill you! Thi…s is also why milk is usually pasteurized: to kill any bacteriathat happen to be in the milk, preventing illness caused by spoiledmilk and extending the shelf life of the milk in the store. (MORE)
