Calotropis procera extract as milk coagulating agent


, : Calotropis procera extract as milk coagulating agent. Brief Communications of the XXIII International Dairy Congress, Montreal, October 8-12, 1990, Vol I: 11

One source of a milk coagulating enzyme that is used in certain parts of Africa (e.g. Nigeria) is the plant Calotropis procera. Calotropis procera was divided into 3 portions (leaves, young stem and old stem). These were cut into small pieces, then the juice from each portion was extracted by pressing. To 1-litre portions of milk were added various quantities of each juice extract and the time taken to achieve coagulation was recorded.
