BEIJING, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- China's dairy farming association released a standard on fresh milk, aiming to improve the level of dairy farming and the ability to produce high-quality fresh milk.

The standard, which came into effect on Nov. 24, posed stricter requirements for key product indicators, said Li Shengli, a senior scientist in the dairy farming sector, at a conference of the association.

According to the standard, the content of lactoprotein in fresh milk products should reach 3 grams per 100 grams, while that of milk fat should be no less than 3.4 grams in every 100 grams of fresh milk, up 0.2 grams and 0.3 grams per 100 grams, respectively, from the national standard launched in 2010.

The standard also reduced the content of total plate count from 2 million colony-forming units (CFU) per milliliter as stated in the 2010 national standard to 100,000 CFU per milliliter.

Founded in 2015, the dairy farming association consists of national and regional dairy enterprises including Bright Dairy, Sanyuan and Wondersun, as well as farms and research institutions. Enditem
