Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC)

Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC)

Milk Protein Concentrate MPC is any type of concentrated milk product that contains 40-90% milk proteins, which are extracted from fresh milk by an ultra-filtration process. These concentrated milk proteins are then subjected to evaporation and spray drying. The resulting dry powder is highly sought after for both its nutritional and functional properties, which serve to enhance many finished food products. MPC contains micellar casein, whey proteins, and bio-active proteins in the same ratio found in milk.
