Inside INAF, milk and dairy product research is based on expertise developed over more than 20 years by the Dairy Science and Technology Research Centre (STELA). From the study of dairy cow diets to the microorganisms that populate Camembert rind, a multitude of projects are looking into milk’s composition and nutritional value, the bioactive components it contains, milk processing, and cheese technology. For more than 20 years, STELA has been the heart and soul of dairy research and the top project host and partner for Quebec’s dairy industry.
