U.S. Dairy Products
Permeate, often labeled as dairy product solids, is a high-lactose dairy ingredient produced through the removal of protein and other solids from milk or whey. U.S. whey and milk permeate is highly regarded for its salty flavor enhancement characteristics, making it an ideal replacement for more costly ingredients while maintaining consumer-acceptable flavor. As consumers look to reduce their sodium intake, permeate shows great promise for a wide range of formulations, including bakery, soup, prepared meals and more. In addition, the high lactose in permeate contributes to the browning appearance and pleasant caramelized aroma of baked goods.
U.S. suppliers have invested research and development efforts revealing the sensory, functional and nutritional benefits of whey and milk permeates as cost-saving, flavor-enhancing ingredients. Moreover, U.S. permeate production has significant continued upside growth potential, enabling a stable, quality supply for years to come.
Key product offerings include milk permeate, whey permeate and delactosed permeate.
