Title
(DE) MIKROPARTIKULIERTES MOLKENPROTEINKONZENTRAT
(EN) A MICROPARTICULATED WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE
(FR) CONCENTRÉ DE PROTÉINES DE LACTOSÉRUM MICROPARTICULAIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A process for making a microparticulated whey protein concentrate, comprises the steps of providing a liquid whey protein concentrate (WPC), subjecting the liquid WPC to microparticulation to provide a microparticulated WPC, and optionally, drying the microparticulated WPC. The liquid WPC is subjected to diafiltration prior to microparticulation to reduce the level of lactose and minerals in the liquid WPC, which allows greater protein denaturation to occur during microparticulation, and provides a microparticulated whey protein that is UHT stable. Microparticulated whey protein concentrates, and UHT-treated liquid nutritional productscontaining the microparticluated whey protein concentrate, are also described.
