Whey powders and lactose

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.
