Light backscatter measurements can be used to monitor changes in milk during the fermentation of cottage cheese or the ezymatic coagulation of milk. Determining appropriate fiber size and spacing between fibers has been an issue in the design of reflectance probes. The radial backscatter profile in milk was measured for varying levels of homogenized milkfat. A light diffusion model was found to fit the measured distribution for light wavelengths between 440 and 700 nm.
