Whey permeate

Whey permeate is the most cost-competitive source of dairy solids on the market. With its clean dairy flavour, milk and whey permeate can easily replace whey powder across General Food, Beverage or Feed applications.

Whey permeate is obtained by using ultrafiltration to remove whey protein from pasteurised Italian white cheese whey. Lactalis Ingredients offers whey permeate powder under the Lactowell brand. Because of its low protein rate of > 4.5 and average content of 80% lactose, Lactowell whey permeate optimises overall costs by replacing whey or lactose.

A sensory profile analysis conducted by an independent university identifies Lactowell as being the dairy product solids (DPS) that presents the most typical dairy organoleptic attributes thanks to its unique whey stream and top quality process. Lactowell whey permeate powder is free flowing and non-hygroscopic. Highly soluble and with a soft dairy taste, it can easily be used in chocolate, bakery or pastry applications.

It can easily be declared in your ingredients list as: Dairy product solids, Whey permeate, Deproteinized whey or Reduced protein whey.
