Chemical composition, activity of ABT culture and some rheological attributes of goat’s milk fortified with various concentrations of Tamr and honey were investigated. Mixing Tamr and honey with goat’s milk increased titratable acidity, redox potential, total solids and total protein contents but fat concentrations slightly lowered. The developments of acidity levels during fermentation as indictor for starter activity were higher in goat’s milk, Tamr and honey mixtures as compared with control (goat’s milk only). Goat’s milk fortified with Tamr and honey had the highest values of curd tension and water holding capacity and the lowest levels of syneresis. Addition of Tamr (10 or 15%) and honey (1 or 2%) highly improved the flavour of goat’s milk. Mixtures of goat’s milk, Tamr and honey can be used as sweetened dairy drinks or in preparation of sweetened fermented dairy products.
