Resumo

BACKGROUND: Raw ewe's milk, as used to manufacture Serra da Estrela Protected Designation of Origin cheese, was pre-treated by high pressure processing (HPP), using previously optimized conditions (121 MPa for 30 min), aiming to evaluate its effect on milk technological properties for subsequent cheese production, namely the impact on resulting curd, whey and cheese throughout ripening. RESULTS: The cheese yield increased 10.4% as a result of milk pre-treated by HPP, which also yielded inactivation of beneficial microbial groups. After 60 days of ripening, both treated and control cheeses showed no significant differences (P ≥ 0.05) with respect to quantified microbial load or basic physicochemical quality parameters. CONCLUSION: HPP appears to be a promising non-thermal treatment for ewes' milk to inactivate contaminant bacteria but with no negative effect on lactic acid bacteria, which is very important for the unique characteristics of Serra da Estrela cheese.
