Lightinduced Flavors

Milk exposed to various forms of radiant energy develops off-flavors. For example, off-flavors may develop when milk is exposed to sufficient direct sunlight, fluorescent light, or even diffused daylight. The light-induced flavor has two distinct components. One is a burnt or "sunlight" flavor which develops rapidly and has been attributed to the degradation of protein components. The second component is similar to oxidized flavor which seems to develop more slowly. Recently, the widespread use of plastic milk containers has increased the incidence of the light-induced flavor.
