As a part of LACTALIS Group, one of the leading cheese producers in the world, LACTALIS Ingredients collects and dries large amounts of whey.
Determined to valorise every drop of milk, we are the biggest whey powder manufacturer in the world. We can provide a complete range of whey and whey derivatives, including whey powder, demineralised whey powder, and lactose, among others.
Whey powder is one of the richest sources of protein and carbohydrates available, and can be consumed in a wide range of applications: baked goods, chocolate and confectionery, dairy, ice cream, infant formula, clinical nutrition and pharmaceuticals.
Thanks to more than 50 years of experience working with dairy ingredients, we have developed a high level of expertise in drying technologies, including concentrations, spray-drying, and crystallization. All of these are key steps to ensure free flowing and non-hygroscopic whey powders.
We pay particular attention to our process to ensure the highest standards of whey powder meaning exportable products with no risk of browning and caking. Our processes are based on a precise monitoring of drying and crystallisation to enable characteristics such as high fluidity, low hygroscopic and low ability to cake.
Whey powders are a valuable source of nutrients and can be used in diverse applications. Flowhey® sweet whey powders, developed by LACTALIS Ingredients, are ideal for manufacturers searching for high quality, free-flowing powders and cost-efficient solutions.
LACTALIS Ingredients provides a complete range of demineralised whey powders from 20% to 90%. Laktodem, for example, is a whey powder designed to meet nutritional applications requirements for infant or adult nutrition. We can also provide 20% to 40% demineralised whey powders for bakery or chocolate applications, all Halal or Kosher certified.
Lactose is a natural milk sugar; the most important component of the milk and whey. LACTALIS Ingredients can provide different types of lactose depending on market requirements, including infant formula, chocolate and confectionary, milk standardization, lactose derivatives, baked goods, and more.
Lactowell whey permeate is composed of protein and lactose obtained from filtration processes. This form of whey is appropriate for food or feed uses and we can export it throughout the world.

As a producer of fat filled milk powders, Lactalis Ingredients has a direct Forest Footprint. As part of our efforts to reduce this footprint we have decided to switch 100% of our purchased palm oil volumes used for our fat filled milk powders to RSPO Mass Balance certified palm oil.
Lactalis Ingredients is expanding its milk powder range with a new organic whole milk powder.
