CHILLY MILK EXPERIMENT:
PURPOSE: TO OBSERVE AND RECORD THE CHANGES WHEN DIFFERENT MILK IS PUT IN THE FREEZER.
WHAT YOU NEED: a selection of 3 different type of milk
WHAT TO DO: Put an equal volume of each type of milk in a clear container
Place each container in the freezer
Record what happens to each type of milk as it freezes. Note its colour,
texture and shape.
Record the time it takes to each variety to freeze.
Type of milk
what it looked like once it had frozen
Time taken to freeze
Whitish Creamy Runny
Yellowish - Whitish
Up & Go Milk
Chocolate - Brownish
The Result - We expected all three to freeze but we were surprised from the condensed milk from freezing. The up & go and soy milk froze. We questioned ourselves which one froze more. But we knew it was up & go because the water % was higher than the soy milk.
Conclusion - We learnt the ingredients in the condensed milk. Also we learnt why the condensed milk did not freeze. The reason why the condensed milk did not freeze is because there was more sugar and fat than water. If the condensed had more water it would have froze. But the up & go and soy milk froze.
Ingredients for condensed milk
Sugar - 41.0 %
Moisture - 31.0 %
Milk Sugar - 10.5 %
Fat - 8.0 %
Proteins - 8.0 %
