Endospores of thermophilic bacilli are a major concern for producers of dairy powders. In this study, we heat treated 10 different spore suspensions at 110 °C in skim milk and skim milk concentrate (36% dry matter) of the species Geobacillus stearothermophilus (10 min) and Anoxybacillus flavithermus (5 min) in a new shear-heating device. The highest log reduction in skim milk concentrate was 3.5. The death behavior of the spores was strain dependent.
