Liquids – feed grade
Concentrated dairy products are supplied by Numidia to meet the various needs of the feed industry.
Numidia offers for the animal feed industry:
Skimmed milk concentrate is obtained after removal of water from the skimmed milk. Water can be removed by either reverse osmosis or evaporation. Evaporation means the removal of water by heating. Reverse osmosis uses a membrane to split the water from the dry matter. SMC usually contains around 36% dry matter and is used to produce skimmed milk powder, ice cream and yoghurt.
Whey concentrate is a result of concentrating liquid whey (6% dry matter) by evaporation or reverse osmosis. Liquid whey is a by-product of cheese production. After adding the rennet to milk, the milk splits into cheese curd and whey. Whey concentrate usually contains 20% or 60% dry matter. Applications can be found in whey powder production for food or feed, ice cream production (sweetener), sports nutrition or pharmaceutical industry.
