The structure of dairy products, such as cheese, yogurt, butter, milk powders, and ice cream, is a complex arrangement of proteins, fat, water, and minerals that dictates the texture of the product. Different methods can be employed to modify structure and texture, which may then influence the creation (generation) and the release of flavor volatiles. This in turn influences the sensory perception of texture and flavor by consumers. Fat reduction of dairy products to create a healthier product will have an important impact upon structure and flavor, however this often reduces the consumer acceptability of a product. This special issue will feature reports on how dairy product structure dictates flavor, the sensory properties of dairy products when changes are made to structure, novel methods to change texture and flavor, and new and current methods of analysis to assess structure and flavor compounds.
