Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC) is a concentrated milk powder that most usually contains 80% milk protein. It is produced from fresh, pasteurized skim milk by filtration, evaporation, and spray drying.
Different varieties of MPC contain different levels of lactose, depending on the level of protein. MPCs with more protein tend to have less lactose. The final product is a loose powder of clean, milky taste and smell.
Milk Protein Concentrate has great foaming, texturing, water-binding, and coagulation properties. Its excellent nutritional value is owed to a high level of concentrated protein. MPC was found to improve rennet coagulability, decrease gelation, and enhance curd firmness.
MPC is also characterized by a high level of solubility and resistance to heat. The addition of MPC increases the levels of calcium and vitamin D.
The production of MPC is deemed more environmentally friendly than industrial casein production, requiring the use of acid.
The shelf life of Milk Protein Concentrate 80% is 24 months.
Foodcom supplies its Business Partners with Milk Protein Concentrate 80% in 25 kg bags and in “Big Bags”.
The ratio of high-protein and low-lactose content makes this product commonly used in manufacturing low-carbohydrate foods and protein-fortified beverages. It can be added to many different types of food, including baked goods, desserts, cultured products, dairy-based beverages, sauces, yogurts, ice cream, and cheeses. MPC is also utilized to manufacture pediatric, medical, geriatric, and sports nutrition as well as meal replacement and weight management products. It is a popular ingredient of low-fat and lactose-derived products.
Milk Protein Concentrate can be used as a substitute for Whole Milk Powder or Skimmed Milk Powder while achieving the same protein levels.
