Whey Permeate Powder

Whey Permeate is a product that is generated when producing Whey Protein Concentrate WPC. It originates after the ultra-filtration of whey.

Product information

With ultrafiltration of whey, protein and other solids are removed. The rest-product is then concentrated and will be spray dried in the next step. The whey permeate is low in proteins but rich in lactose (milk sugar) and also in minerals. The lactose content is 84% (+/- 3%). This is also the reason for the mild appealing flavor of this product. It’s color is creamy white. The product is a free flowing and crystalline powder with a sweet dairy flavor and good solubility.

Demineralized Whey Permeate Powder is manufactured from sweet whey in the process of ultrafiltration and Nano filtration. The percentage of ash/minerals is smaller than in normal Whey Permeate.


Whey Permeate has a high wettability and flows easily. Therefor it is suitable for use in applications such as:

  • Instant soups, sauces
  • Powder beverages and seasoning

Because it has a sweet dairy flavor, it is also used in applications such as
