Milk protein concentrate is a concentrated milk product that contains 40% to 85% milk protein. It is considered as a complete protein as it contains both casein and whey protein in a similar ratio. Moreover, low amount of lactose present in milk protein concentrate powder (80%-85%) makes it safe for consumption for lactose-intolerant people. Milk protein concentrates are usually manufactured by filtration processes such as ultrafiltration, microfiltration, and diafiltration. The membrane separation technology in the mentioned processes removes the majority of lactose and soluble minerals and retains the milk protein, which is then spray dried.

Moreover, conventionally used meat protein can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, which has led to high adoption of milk protein concentrate.
  • Increasing the production of milk is also increasing the supply of milk protein concentrates in the market.
