ABSTRACT. Currently, a fifth of the adult population of Russia, including residents of our region, suffers not only from a polydeficiency condition with respect to vitamins, micro- and macroelements, but also from a reduced immune status due to infectious diseases, including viral nature. We evaluated the main indicators of pasteurized milk serum (titrated and active acidity, total insemination and number of bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus), the antibacterial characteristics of plant raw materials on the example of Origanum vulgare and determined that the addition of O. vulgare plant raw material extracts to milk serum leads not only to the enrichment of already useful milk whey with vitamins, micro- and macroelements, but also to an increase in the shelf life of the product.
KEYWORDS: micro- and macronutrients, functional beverages, milk serum, extracts of plants.
