Market Outlook: Delactosed Whey
Delactosed whey is produced by separating lactose from sweet whey through concentrating and crystalizing. This is followed by spray drying. While producing delactosed whey, special efforts are made to retain functional and nutritive properties and the main content of the protein fraction. However, the applications of delactosed whey in the food industry are limited. However, rising demand for lactose-free products in the market is expected to increase the demand for delactose whey. On the other side, delactosed whey has high applications in animal feed. In terms of protein content, delactosed whey has low protein content, i.e. 26% - 33%.
