Milk Coagulation Test
Outside United States
The alcohol milk coagulation test was originally developed with the intention to determine the amount of bacteria in milk. The idea was that if milk coagulated when alcohol was added, that there was a high level of bacteria. However, research has shown that the coagulation of milk when alcohol is added is not directly correlated to the amount of bacteria present in milk, and even minerals in milk may cause the coagulation to occur when alcohol is added. Due to the inconsistent relationship between coagulation and bacteria levels, the alcohol coagulation test is not commonly used.
