The aim of this study was to compare the inactivation effects of ohmic heating and conventional heating on total plate count, yeasts and molds, Coliforms, E.coli and salmonella, in buffalo milk under identical temperature conditions. Samples of milk were heated conventionally and ohmically to target end point temperatures and then paneer was prepared from those milk samples. It was found that microbial counts resulting from ohmic heating were significantly lower than those resulting from conventional heating. Salmonella were completely killed by ohmic heating. Texture analysis of ohmic and conventional heated paneer showed significant difference as ohmic heated paneer exhibited less hardness. Based on the results, ohmic heating can be proposed an effective technique for pasteurization of buffalo milk.
