Title: PROCESS FOR PRODUCING ACIDIC DRINKS CONTAINING LOW-CALORIE MILK
Abstract:
A process for easily producing acidic drinks containing milk, acidic drinks containing low-calorie milk and acidic drinks containing milk together with fruit juice, vegetable juice, etc. in which the aggregation and precipitation of protein can be sufficiently inhibited and which have a favorable taste and a high keeping stability during storage time. This process comprises: preparing starting materials including at least milk, soybean dietary fiber, pectin and a souring agent; forming a mixture containing the milk and the soybean dietary fiber but free from pectin; adding the souring agent thereto to thereby give a primary mixture having a pH value of 3.0 to 4.2; then adding the above pectin thereto to give a secondary mixture; and homogenizing the secondary mixture to thereby give an acidic drink containing milk.
