Bob-White's LiLi Pasteurizer Passes State Inspection & Receives Favorable FDA Review

11/21/2013

The LiLi pasteurizer, Bob-White Systems' Low Input-Low Impact continuous-flow HTST pasteurizer, has passed rigorous inspections by the state of Vermont and received a favorable review from the Food & Drug Administration and is in full compliance with all pertinent regulations, including the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO). The machine is now approved for legal use in all 50 states, pending local, routine inspections.

This is a boon to the local production of safe and delicious milk and dairy products. The LiLi operates at such fine temperature tolerances that the milk is minimally processed and maintains its nutritional value and delicious, farm-fresh taste. "We pasteurize at between 163 and 165 degrees and hold that temperature consistently to within one degree," says Bob-White Systems founder Steven Judge, one of the chief designers of the LiLi pasteurizer. "The LiLi operates so dependably and at such consistent temperatures that the milk is not diverted and reheated during the pasteurization process, which protects the overall quality of the milk." This means a superior end product that will make better-tasting milk, cheese, yogurt, and other value-added dairy products.  LiLi milk is the closest possible thing to farm-fresh raw milk. 

The LiLi pasteurizer offers farmers and dairy food producers the added benefit of being easy to use. "It is so easy to use, it is almost boring," says Judge. "The LiLi pasteurizer is truly low-input and low-impact. It requires very little energy, time and resources to set up. It ships preassembled and requires almost no maintenance during use. The best part is that it does the same job as other small HTST pasteurizers and delivers a better-tasting end product."  Here is some more information about the LiLi:

.  Continuous heating process has a low impact on the nutritional value and flavor of the milk. A gentle pumping action further preserves milk's creamy, rich taste and consistency.
.  The LiLi pasteurizer is in full compliance with the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance. This means that dairies and dairy-food producers of all sizes can easily and legally pasteurize milk on site.
.  Inline system pasteurizes milk at a rate of 2 gallons per minute--much faster, and using much less energy, than traditional vat pasteurizers. Revolutionary, regenerative heating process returns 85 percent of process heat, making the LiLi the most efficient small-scale pasteurizer on the market.
.  Requires only five hookups--240 VAC input, standard 120-volt amp circuit, water, raw milk input, and a drain. No additional infrastructure or external heat source required. Compact size (approximate 6-foot-square design) makes it easy to use and install. In addition, the LiLi has an automated "Clean-in-Place" System. The machine requires minimal training or operator input during use. 

The LiLi pasteurizer is a huge labor and time-saver compared to vat pasteurization. The onboard sanitizing and self-cleaning technology virtually eliminates time-consuming prep and cleanup. More importantly, the LiLi opens up new income streams for dairy farmers, groups of dairy farmers and others who wish to produce and sell value-added dairy products locally. "The LiLi has the potential to make locally produced, safe and delicious farm-fresh milk and other dairy products readily available again," adds Judge.

The LiLi pasteurizer is available at a significantly lower price than comparable machines.  The LiLi can be used hand in hand with a number of Bob-White Systems products, including small-scale bulk tanks, automatic bottle filler-cappers and the stainless steel butter churn.
