Reduced Lactose Whey
Reduced lactose whey is obtained by the selective removal of lactose from whey. The lactose content of the dry product may not exceed 60%. Removal of lactose is accomplished by physical separation techniques such as precipitation, filtration, or dialysis. The acidity of reduced lactose whey may be adjusted by the addition of safe and suitable pH ingredients.
