Whey Powder Production Cost Analysis 2020

Whey powder, which is simply referred to as whey, is the remaining liquid or leftover when milk is coagulated during cheese production, which holds everything that is soluble from milk after the pH is dropped to 4.6 during the coagulation method. Whey powder is derived after milk has been curdled as well as strained. Thus, it is a by-product of cheese or casein production. 

Whey powder has numerous industrial uses. Acid whey, which is better known as sour whey, is a by-product produced amidst the production of acid types of dairy products, like the cottage cheese or strained yoghurt. Whey proteins are composed of a-lactalbumin, ß-lactoglobulin, serum albumin, immunoglobulins, and protease-peptones. Sweet whey powder is a by-product of rennet-coagulated cheese. Sweet whey powder holds a pH greater than or equal to 5.6. Whey powder is denatured by heat. High heat like the sustained high temperatures above 72 °C associated with the pasteurisation methods denatures whey proteins.
