Acid Whey Powder (AWP) is a by-product of cheese or acid casein production. It is produced by drying fresh whey obtained from soft white cheese. With the use of microbial fermentation, milk pH becomes lower and lactose is changed into lactic acid. 

 

Acid Whey Powder is characterized by lower lactose content and thus the taste is more acidic than sweet. The acidity is around 4,5 pH. The product is a loose powder of cream color and slightly acidic flavor. 

 

Applications

Acid Whey Powder is mainly used for ricotta and whey butter production. It is also used as an ingredient in many processed foods e.g. bread, crackers, meats, pastries, ready-cooked dishes. Acid Whey Powder is also found in chocolate and confectionery products. 

 

Acid Whey Powder provided by Foodcom can be also used in the production of animal feed. It is a popular economical substitute for Sweet Whey Powder in piglet feed. Acid Whey powder is also used in low-pH milk replacers. 

 

Technical aspects 

The composition of Acid Whey Powder is similar to that of Sweet Whey Powder except it has a lower level of lactose, higher titratable acidity, and increased content of calcium, phosphorus, and lactic acid.
