These milk either of one species or more are used for production of milk products. In Turkey, butter and yoghurt production are on very high level. Yoghurt is the best known and very popular milk product. Generally set yoghurt is produced. There is very low production of flavoured yoghurt. A dried type of yoghurt is called Kurut. In Marmara district, Silivri yoghurt is produced from sheep-s milk. This type has a, very good consistency. Ayran is typical milk product, produced from yoghurt.
