A global convergence toward Western-style diets that are high in calories, protein, and animal-based foods poses challenges for food security and sustainability.

Production of Milk Protein Concentrate with Energy and Environmental Savings and Reduced Equipment NeedsType:ProductObjective:
Skim milk powder which consists of lactose protein and other small nutrients provides a means for storing and moving surplus skim milk. It conventionally has been used for protein fortification of formulated food products. However the use of skim milk powder in many food applications is limited because its high lactose content can potentially jeopardize the quality of the final product through lactose crystallization. Milk protein concentrate provides an alternative dried milk protein product.
