What is delactosed whey powder and what is it used for?
Delactosed whey powders are a by-product of lactose production and provide high-quality protein. Due to their excellent functional properties, they are widely used in the food industry for emulsification, stabilization and flavor rounding. The main areas of application are savory products such as cooked ham, sausages, salad creams, mayonnaises, spice mixtures, baked goods (toast, bread loaf, hamburger buns, raisin bread and rolls as well as moist, soft specialty pastries) and breading.
How do we produce delactosed whey powders?
It all starts with the raw material whey. This is produced during the manufacture of cheese. In addition to water, the main components of whey are lactose (milk sugar), whey protein and milk minerals. The components of whey (protein, milk minerals, vitamins) are enriched by partial extraction of the milk sugar. The gentle manufacturing process ensures that these valuable components are retained in a freely available form. With the help of spray drying of delactosed whey, we are able to produce a delactosed whey powder with a comparatively high protein and mineral content.
