Department of Nutrition and Food Technology, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Mu'tah, Jordan.


The conventional heating methods of milk did not cause any significant increase in the trans isomer content, with the exception of milk heated at 63 +/- 1.0 degrees C for 30 min and milk microwaved for 5 min, which were significantly increased by 19 and 31%, respectively. The chemical changes of lipids were generally accelerated with the severity of the heat treatment and duration of storage. The conjugated linoleic acid content of cheese heated in a microwave oven for 5 min decreased by 21%, and microwave heating for 10 min caused a decrease of 53% compared with that of freshly boiled cheese.
