Typical Composition of Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC)

WPC powders should be exempt of Salmonella, Listeria, coagulase-positive Staphylococcus and show a maximum Standard Plate Count of 50,000 colony-forming units/gram (CFU/g) and less than 10 Coliform CFU/g. Whey Protein Concentrates are not genetically modified and don’t contain genetically modified ingredients. They don’t need any special labelling.

Application

WPC35 powders are commonly used as a replacement for skimmed milk, a stabilizer and fat mimetic in yogurt, bakery mixes, dietetic foods, infant foods, and confections. Its water-binding properties, fat-like mouthfeel, and gelation properties are of particular benefit when used in these further processed products.

WPC50, WPC65 or WPC80 are especially suited for use in nutritional drinks, soups, bakery products, meat, dietetic foods, low-fat products and protein-fortified beverages. They are especially noted for their ability to completely dissolve in a wide range of pH conditions.

Shelf Life

24 months from the date of production.
