Unpasteurized fresh milk by SEK made possible through the contributions of Professor Dilek Boyacıoğlu and endorsement by ITUNOVA TTO

The dairy company SEK launched a new line of unpasteurized fresh milk with the use of a ceramic filtration system that removes harmful microorganisms while protecting the essential nutrients in milk. This product is different because milk is treated by a ceramic filtration system rather than high heat. This procedure removes most of the bacterial load in the milk while preserving heat-sensitive nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and proteins.

You may have come across commercials lately: The dairy company SEK launched a new line of unpasteurized fresh milk with the use of a ceramic filtration system that removes harmful microorganisms while protecting the essential nutrients in milk. This product is different because milk is treated by a ceramic filtration system rather than high heat. This procedure removes most of the bacterial load in the milk while preserving heat-sensitive nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and proteins. This makes milk both wholesome and as nutritious as it was the moment it was milked.

SEK applied to the ITU Food Engineering Department for an endorsement of the new ceramic filtration production technology. A protocol was signed with TAT Gıda, involving ITUNOVA TTO in the process.

The nutritional values of the next-generation unpasteurized milk were submitted to institutions with international accreditation for analysis as part of the protocol signed between ITUNOVA TTO and TAT Gıda in a project implemented by ITU Food Engineering Department faculty member Professor Dilek Boyacıoğlu.

Analysis results confirmed the high content of protein, vitamins and minerals in the new unpasteurized milk as reported by ITUNOVA TTO, and proved the benefits of the new production method.

The commercial and bureaucratic processes related to Professor Dilek Boyacıoğlu and the ITU Food Engineering Department acting as advisor and implementer were handled by ITUNOVA TTO.
