Whey is a by-product from manufacturing of hard, semi-hard and soft cheese. Whey is a valuable raw material for producing whey powder and value added products like whey protein concentrate (WPC) and whey protein isolate (WPI).
An advanced process technology is required to produce whey products like WPC and lactose powder. Whey powder and whey protein concentrate are used in a wide range of food products such as processed meat, sausages, health foods, beverages, baby food, beverages and confectionery. They bring increased nutritional value and improved texture to food products. Watch how whey powder improves sustainability
