Demineralized Whey Powder

Demineralized whey powder is obtained by removing a defined part of the minerals from pasteurized whey.

Product information

In Demineralized whey a portion of the minerals are removed from the pasteurized whey. The typical levels of this demineralization are 40%, 50%, 70% and 90%.
Demineralized whey powder contains lactose as well as serum proteins with a high nutritional value. When it is 90% demineralized it is often used for infant food. In this infant formula application it helps to standardize the serum protein, lactose and mineral contents to be closer to the breast milk composition.
Typical composition is: protein 11 – 15% and Lactose 70 to 80%.

The powder is free flowing, white to yellowish, typical milk taste and smell without foreign odor.
