Lactose is a natural milk sugar. It makes up 3,5-5,0% of cow’s milk and can be extracted by a filtration process with the use of centrifuges. The product goes through a series of washing steps in order to separate the lactose from the proteins, minerals, and debris. Then it is crystallized and crushed.

Lactose is one of the best dairy ingredients for food and feed applications due to its delicate taste, white color, and low content of calories. It has great taste- and flavor-enhancing properties. Lactose preserves its crystallized structure without over-sweetening the final product. Its cost-effectiveness, low hygroscopicity, and water solubility contribute to its popularity. Lactose can also be used in the manufacturing of pastry, confectionery, chocolates, baked goods, meat industry, and dietary nutrition.

Lactose is also found in baby food in a variety of infant formulas. It enables the fermentation process in the production of yogurts, kefirs, and other beverages.

In the pharmaceutical industry, the carrying properties of lactose play a crucial role in the production of tablets. It is also used as an excipient and binder, allowing for an even distribution of the active component within the tablets.
