Skim milk (SM) and skim milk yogurt (SMY) were produced and analyzed using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the presence of two organic acids–orotic acid (OA) and uric acid (UA). The concentration of OA in SM and SMY at 0 days was 106.2 and 46.1 ppm, respectively. After fermentation OA concentration was 56% lower (P 〈0.05) in SMY than in nonfermented SM. UA content of SM and SMY at 0 days was 23.3 and 20.1 ppm, respectively. Unlike OA, the UA contents were not significantly altered after fermentation. No significant differences were detected in the concentrations of OA and UA when values of SM and SMY of 0 days were compared with those after 3 days storage.
