10. Butter production now accounts for _______% of the total milk supply.
Explanation: Butter is a very popular dairy product. Its production is now 18% of the total milk supply.
11. Light whipping cream has a minimum of _____% milk fat.
Explanation: Heavy Whipping Cream has a fat content of 36% or greater. Light Cream generally sits on 30%.
12. Today, milk that has been ultra pasteurized must have been heated at or above ______degrees F for at last ________ seconds.
a) 191, 2
b) 212, 3
c) 260, 2
d) 280, 2
Explanation: Ultra Pasteurization (UP), or Ultra High Temperature (UHT) pasteurization, is the process of heating milk to approximately 280 °F for just 2 seconds and then chilling it back down rapidly. The result is milk that’s 99.9% free from bacteria.
