Permeate

Permeate is a by-product derived from milk or whey, when they are concentrated in protein content. We can offer two different types of permeate:  

Milk Permeate is a product that is generated when producing MPC / MPI. It originates after the ultra-filtration of milk. The first step in producing Milk Permeate is the elimination of milk proteins and dairy fat contained in milk. From this product milk permeate is obtained by the process of ultra-filtration. Milk Permeate is a by-product of the production of Milk Protein Concentrate and Milk Protein Isolates. It is heat treated (equivalent to a pasteurization). The lactose content is approx. 85%.

Milk Permeate is known for its following characteristics: good fluidity and flow, reduction of production costs, excellent bulking agent, it has a stabilizing effect on casein micelles.

Applications: chocolate & candy manufacturing, bakery, confectionery, dairy based blends, ice cream, as a protein standardisation agent in dairy products.

HS code: 0404.90

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whey Permeate is a product that is generated when producing WPC. It originates after the ultra-filtration of whey. With ultrafiltration of whey, protein and other solids are removed. The rest-product is then concentrated and will be spray dried in the next step. The whey permeate is low in proteins but rich in lactose (milk sugar) and also in minerals. The lactose content is approx. 85%.

It is known for its following characteristics: mild appealing sweet dairy flavor, a free flowing crystalline powder, good solubility, often used as bulking agent, flavor binding & enhancing, source of lactose, replacer of other more expensive (filler) ingredients, good fluidity, reduced hygroscopity.

Applications: instant soups, sauces, powdered beverages, seasoning, chocolate & confectionery, cost-effective bulking agent, bakery, culinary.

HS code: 0404.10 

Permeate has a long shelf life of approx. 12 – 24 months from date of manufacture (depending on its packaging) and it should be stored in a cool, dark and dry place (preferably below 25˚C). Do not expose the product to direct sunlight or to strong odours.

Packaging 
Our Permeate is available in 25 kg multi-ply paper bags with poly inner liner and in Big Bags of approx. 1000 kg net weight each.

Lactose

Lactose (milk sugar) is a carbohydrate derived from milk. It is being manufactured from sweet whey, by ultra-filtration, evaporation, crystallization and milling. It is applied as thickener, flavour and texture additive. Lactose is less sweet than regular sugar and has a flavour enhancing effect.
