Whey Production Cost Report

Whey is a by-product of cheese or casein. It is a liquid, which is left after the milk has been strained or curdled. It has a diverse range of commercial applications. It is a high-quality dairy protein and is an essential ingredient for a healthy lifestyle. It is highly rich in amino acids, especially leucine. It is produced through the coagulation of milk. During the production of cheese, the milk is coagulated by adding edible acid to the heated milk. The fat from the whey is removed and is further processed by the drying process. The lipids and non-protein material are also removed from it.

It is composed of 0.3 percent fat, 0.8 percent protein, 4.9 percent lactose, and 0.5 percent minerals. The density of whey is 1.3±0.1 g/cm3 and its boiling point is 227.6±0.0 °C at 760 mmHg. The molecular formula of whey is C3H6O3, and its molecular weight is 90.078 U. The vapor pressure of whey is 0.0±1.0 mmHg at 25°C and its flash point is 109.9±16.3 °C.

The growing consumer preference for personal care products based on natural and herbal ingredients is predicted to increase the market for whey protein in the personal care and cosmetic industries. The market for skincare products has witnessed a hike in the demand, particularly facial care products.

Over the forecast period, the demand for exceptional and high-end personal care & cosmetic products is expected to rise.  It is also extensively employed in dietary and nutritional supplements, and food supplements, which is also further propelling the market growth.
