Ricotta is produced from stabilized whey (cow’s and/or sheep’s whey) and if required, it is added with cream and/or milk.
Heated whey is fed into the flocculators where it is added with acidifying medium, then it undergoes a final heating with direct steam. Whey proteins that appear at surface are separated from the exhausted whey in a drainage belt conveyor. Ricotta is then smoothed to absorb water and it is sent to a packaging machine.
The line is cleaned under CIP station.
