Useful properties of serum
Serum contains a lot of milk protein and lecithin. Its composition includes about 200 items of vitamins of group C, A, E, B, PP, nutrients, biologically active substances. And, of course, the necessary trace elements, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus.
The beneficial properties of whey do not depend on where it is cooked — at the dairy plant or at home. The most useful product is a serum made of fresh milk, immediately from a goat or cow, but when there is none, the usual pasteurized will be perfect.
How to cook a milk serum at home
Take fresh milk, pour into a saucepan or large bowl, put in a warm place for a day so that it will sour and become simple. Then put a pan of liquid on a slow heat and bring to a boil.
Don’t let the sour milk boil, or the curd won’t work.
Remove the pan from the heat as soon as the curd flakes appear on the surface. Cool the liquid thoroughly. Take the gauze folded into four layers and strain the cooled mass. The gauze will remain curd, and the milk whey will unhook into the prepared container.
There is another way to quickly prepare dairy whey. Take one lemon, remove the juice from it. Put boil one liter of milk. As soon as it starts to boil, pour lemon juice into it, stir everything very quickly and immediately remove from the stove. Just as in the first way, separate the curd from the liquid. The
serum prepared this way has an additional supply of vitamin C.
