Sampling of milk and dairy products

Sampling has to be based on a distinct problem definition and clear analytical questions. A detailed sampling planning has to be derived from it, including statistical considerations and being integrated in a quality system. Sampling of milk and milk products is well described in official regulations and international standards. Guidance document ISO 707 | IDF 50 is of vital relevance. Estimations of sampling uncertainty are rarely available.
