Whey Protein Concentration & Isolate

Whey Protein Concentrate

Whey protein concentrate (WPC) manufacturing converts whey into value added products. Whey proteins have a number of useful nutritional and functional properties that can be utilized in a wide range of products. Whey protein concentrate is obtained by removing sufficient non-protein constituents from whey. It is composed of 80% protein and a small amount of a carbohydrate known as lactose. Whey protein concentrate satisfies consumer demands for effectively building and restoring muscles after workouts.

Typical Applications:

  • Nutrition Bars
  • Milk UHT Beverages
  • Powdered Shakes
  • Smoothies
