Use: Skim Milk is used for preparing microbiological culture media. Skim Milk Medium may be used for the cultivation and differentiation of microorganisms based on the coagulation and proteolysis of casein.
Description: Skim Milk is soluble, spray-dried skim milk. When prepared in a 10% solution, it is equivalent to fresh skim milk. Skim Milk can be used to prepare Skim Milk Agar for detecting proteolytic microorganisms in foods, including dairy products. It can also be used to prepare litmus milk, a differential test medium for determining lactose fermentation and for detecting proteolytic enzymes that hydrolyze casein (milk protein) and cause coagulation (clot formation).
