Casein/ WPC/ DM Whey Powder/ Lactose Plant

Casein, WPC, DM Whey Powder, Lactose Plant
We are a specialized names in the fabrication of casein, DM whey powder, WPC, MPC and lactose manufacturing plant. The Ultra filtration membrane, Nanofiltration membrane, RO membrane and Ion exchange resins shall be used for manufacturing DM whey, WPC and MPC. We also supply standard quality membranes and resins.

Casein Powder
Casein is an insoluble milk protein powder produced from pure pasteurized skimmed milk by controlled acid precipitation. It shall be used as an ingredient in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, dietetic and other specialized foods, cheese products, ice cream and other protein foods.

Casein is prepared by acid precipitation from unheated or short time heated separated milk, which has a fat content of not more than 0.05%. Higher temp. reduce solubility since whey proteins become precipitated. Whey and lactose are removed from the curd thus obtained by heating and then washing with warm water. The casein is dried to a moisture content of 8-12% and the final product contains 80-90% Casein, not more than 2% fat and 2-4% ash. To prevent discoloration through browning by the maillard reaction, the lactose content should be reduced as much as possible.

Casein Powder

Demineralized Whey Powder
Whey contained a high salt content, about 8-12%, which is calculated on Dry matter basis. Its usefulness as an ingredient in human food is limited. Whey is demineralized partially (30-50%) and highly (90-95%). Demineralization involves removal of inorganic salts together with some reduction in the content of organic ions such as lactates and citrates.

Partial demineralization of whey is done through Nanofiltration membrane and high demineralization through Nanofiltartion membrane and Ion exchange resins.

Partially demineralized whey concentrate can be used in Ice cream and Bakery products and highly demineralized whey concentrate powder can be used in formulas for Infant food.

Whey Protein Concentrate Powder and Lactose
Whey protein concentrates are powder made by drying the retentate from the Ultra Filtration of whey. They are described in terms of their protein content, % protein in dry matter basis, ranging from 35% to 85%. The concentration of whey proteins is primarily achieved by UF and Diafiltration.

The permeate of UF membrane is high in lactose content, so that is used for manufacturing lactose powder. Permeate recovered is concentrated to minimum 62% TS level in an evaporator and then cooled under controlled conditions for Lactose crystallization. Crystals are washed, decanted and dried to produce pharma grade lactose.

Milk Protein Concentrate and Lactose
When skimmed milk is pumped through a series of special Ultra Filtration Membranes under cold temperature conditions the major proteins and part of lactose along with complete part of milk fat does not pass through the membrane and comes out as retentate. Around 80 % of ash and only 15 % of the available NPN in milk are also retained in this part of ash pass through the membrane coming out as permeate. The retentate coming out is in the range of 18-22 % total solid and permeate is in the range of 18-22 % total solid and the permeate is in the range of around 5 % total solid contents.

Retentate is thereafter further concentrated up to around 45% TS level either by using an evaporator or up to around 30 % TS level by using an RO system. Concentrated liquor is then spray dried to form MPC powder.

Permeate recovered is concentrated to minimum 62% TS level in an evaporator and then cooled under controlled conditions for Lactose crystallization. Crystals are washed, decanted and dried to produce pharma grade lactose.
