What is Milk Protein Concentrate?

Milk proteins supply essential amino acids – the building blocks of protein. Protein, the body’s major building material, is amongst the most complex and important substance consumed in the daily diet. They are essential to every individual cell’s metabolic activities. The brain, muscles, blood, skin, hair, nails and the connective tissues that hold the body together are all made mostly of protein. Antibodies, enzymes and hormones are all constructed of proteins.

Milk protein concentrate is manufactured using gentle, low temperature ultra-filtration and advanced spray-drying technology. This process provides an ingredient suitable for a variety of food products such as bakery, dairy, meat, health and sports nutritional products, desserts, icings, soups and sauces. It is an excellent replacement for skim milk powder.

From a nutritional point-of-view, milk proteins…

  1. Provide a nutritional source of casein and whey proteins in their natural form
  2. Are an excellent source of dietary calcium
  3. Have a well-balanced amino acid profile
