Standard Methods for Examination of Dairy Products

Thus, the fat content of butter may be measured by using cream butyrometers and that of ice cream by using whole milk or cheese butyrometers, appropriate modifications to the method being undertaken.

The procedure involves measuring a specified amount of dairy product into the butyrometer, and adding concentrated sulfuric acid to dissolve the non-fat milk solids and amyl alcohol to aid the separation of fat and aqueous phases.

Water is added where necessary to bring the liquid levels to a point where the fat level is on the scale. The addition of the sulfuric acid causes the temperature of the mixture to increase and the fat to liquif, additional warming in a water bath is occasionally necessary to effect complete liquifying of the fat and also the solubilisation of the non-fat solids.

The mixture is centrifuged in a special Gerber centrifuge for a set time at rpm, and then the tubes are placed in a water bath to standardize the samples before the fat reading is read off the calibrated scale of the butyrometer.

Babcock method. The principle of the Babcock method is similar to that of the Gerber described above. It differs from the Gerber method in the nature of the glassware used and in the specification of dividers or calipers to measure the length of the fat column.

The Babcock method is widely used in the USA. International Dairy Journal. Elsevier Ltd.

Archived from the original on 12 September The fat content of a milk product is an important indication of quality, both economically and physiologically. Spectrometric measuring methods are often used. However, these methods have to be calibrated, which is costly.

This method is still used because it is simple, fast, low-cost and suitable for a relatively high sample throughput.

However, butyrometry has several disadvantages. The determination cannot be automated and involves a certain risk in handling highly concentrated sulphuric acid, especially while reading the butyrometer.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration

Handling the butyrometer requires practical skills, which has a negative effect on the robustness of the method. A great disadvantage is the varying definition of fat compared with the reference methods.

In the latter, fat is always defined by extraction with a non-polar solvent. In the butyrometric method, this extraction step is missing. Several attempts have been made to harmonize the fixed butyrometer scale with the values from reference analysis. Even with the costly gravimetric reference methods, attempts were made to automate or simplify the procedure. Dairy Field.

Stagnito Publishing. July Research was recently published in the Journal of AOAC International, which concludes that the Gerber method be adopted as an official first action for testing butterfat in whole milk.

The Gerber method is used worldwide as a simple and rapid method for determining the fat in raw and processed milk. It is also a compendium of microbiological, chemical, and physical methods for analyzing milk and dairy products. The focus of SMEDP is on tests for hidden attributes that can only be detected by laboratory procedures.

These include test methods and procedures that may be applied routinely for the laboratory evaluation of products and complex nonroutine methods, such as those for foodborne pathogens and vitamin content analysis. The new 17th edition of SMEDP provides the dairy industry, associated research organizations, and the governmental bodies charged with ensuring the safety and wholesomeness of dairy products with validated methodology to ensure that harmful levels of organisms and other substances are absent and that the nutritive qualities, flavor, and appearance of products meet established specifications.

An aim of SMEDP is to provide a system for the uniform testing of dairy products that will become a critical component of both government and industry analytical programs. The presentation of methods in SMEDP is designed to foster uniformity by providing sufficient information on key test procedures so that analysts have a clear set of procedures when performing each method.


In addition to the routine updating of methodology, comprehensive revisions have been made to chapters on antibiotic drug residues and chemical and physical methods. Rapid changes in antibiotic residue testing methodology have replaced methods in earlier editions.
