DAIRY BASED PRODUCTS
- Lactose: Lactose is a sugar which is
found most notably in milk. Lactose makes up around 2–8%
of the solids in milk. Lactose stimulates the synthesis
of B-vitamins by the intestinal bacteria in both mammals
- Whey Powder: Whey powder is a by-product
of cheese-making and is recognized as a value-added ingredient.
Whey contains high quality protein, lactose, minerals
(e.g., calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc), vitamins,
and traces of milk fat.
- Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC): Mainly
used by feed manufacturers, whey powder concentrate also
finds application in the food industry and may be used
for the production of baby food. It is also a competitive
alternative for skimmed milk. The whey protein concentrate
is a distinguished protein source.
- Demineralised Whey Powder (DWP): Demineralised
whey powder is a good source of nutritionally balanced
whey and lactose. It has low mineral content and versatile
functionality. Demineralised whey powder is eminently
appropriate for the production of baby food and infant
food because it is a good source of high-quality protein
and a source of active peptides.
