Industrial training gives us opportunity to know about the processing and the quality control of the product. We are now aware about the responsibility towards our work and management. This report is about the internal experience which we get during the training of 6 months from (01-01-2014 to 30-06-2014). I am very thankful to the Prof. Vinita Aggarwal (Head of dept. Biotechnology, SSCMT, Amritsar) who gives us opportunity for industrial training in Verka Milk Plant Amritsar. I am also very thankful to G.M., Deputy Manager, Quality Control Manager and all the operators for helping me in understanding the technical things.

TO CALCULATE THE MOISTURE CONTENT OF GIVEN SAMPLE. Apparatus:- Sample of ghee and paneer, moisture dish of Aluminum (7-8 cm in diameter and 2-2.5 cm deep), Dessicator and heating mantle. PROCEDURE FOR:a) GHEE:Weight of empty dish = X g Weight of ghee sample + dish = Y g Heat on mantle until fumes appears. Then cool the Sample containing dish in the dessicator to room Temperature and weigh it. Weight of dry matter + dish = Z g Loss in weight = (Y-Z) g Hence, Moisture content = weight loss/original weight X 100 = ____% b) PANEER:Weight of empty dish = X g Weight of paneer sample + dish = Y g Heat on mantle until appears brownish. Then cool The sample containing dish in the dessicator to room Temperature & weigh it. Weight of dry matter + dish = Z g Loss in weight = (Y-Z) g Hence, Moisture content = weight loss/original weight X 100 = ____%

TO CALCULATE THE %FAT AND % SOLIDS NOT FATS (SNF) IN THE GIVEN SAMPLE. (a) %FAT OF MILK BY BUTYROMETER METHOD Apparatus:- Sample of milk, butyrometer, tiltmeasure (BOD bottle with small slanting bottle mounted at the top), 10.75 ml pipette and centrifuge. Reagent:- Isoamyl alcohol
