Summary: This study investigated the effects of various heating processes on the quality of goats’ yogurt. The degree of goats’ milk protein denaturation increased significantly with increasing the heating temperature and time (P < 0.05). alpha-Lactalbumin (α-LA) and beta-lactoglobulin (β-LG) showed a similar change trend in 5 samples after heat treatment, as did alpha-casein (α-CN) and beta-casein (β-CN), but that of kappa-casein (κ-CN) was different. In general, yogurt heated at 85 ± 1 °C for 15 s or at 120 ± 1 °C for 4 s showed good water holding capacity and rheological properties, and the gel network microstructure had a more compact, greater degree of crosslinking and smaller voids. Thus, milk heat-treated at 85 ± 1 °C for 15 s or at 120 ± 1 °C for 4 s had better indicator parameters than other groups.
