About the Homogenization Virtual Lab Simulation

Dairy products are very common in your daily life, but what are the processes needed to manufacture them from raw milk? In the Homogenization simulation, you will learn different concepts, focusing on emulsions like milk. You will also perform one of the common procedures for processing milk: homogenization. You will process some raw milk to transfer the acquired knowledge to a farmer, in order for him to expand his local business and provide tasty milk to more people. Will you be able to help him understand the concept of homogenization to improve his business?
