Report Digest


Milk protein concentrates are milk products with concentrated contents of milk protein. Milk protein concentrates are produced by processing skim milk. In the United States, milk protein concentrates are defined as “any complete milk protein concentrate (lactalbumin and casein) that contains 40% or more protein by weight.”

Producing milk protein concentrates from skim milk involves a series of procedures such as ultrafiltration, evaporation, and spray drying. Ultrafiltration separates whole milk into skim milk and cream, removing the liquid to obtain small molecules of protein and minerals. Milk protein concentrates are normally produced in the dry, powder form, and can be used in various dairy and food products, including desserts and energy bars, which mainly drives the milk protein concentrate market.
