Spontaneous off flavored raw milk: develop detection methods and prevention strategies

Over the past five decades, researchers have investigated factors that influence the occurrence of ‘spontaneous oxidized off‐flavor’ in milk; however, the conclusions from this body of work are not consistent and limit our ability to monitor and control this important industrial problem. This reports looks to define the causative off‐flavor compounds involved to more appropriately develop analytical methods for detection of this milk quality issue based on understanding the chemistry involved.
