A Premier Authority on Dairy Ingredients

Setting the Standard

ADPI is committed to the development of dairy ingredient standards and specifications. An important part of the ADPI mission is the development of industry standards for dairy ingredients that serve to build customer and consumer confidence and trust in U.S.-produced products. We are proud to provide the dairy industry with the collection of product standards listed below.

ADPI urges the industry to use these product standards as a guide in the manufacturing, marketing, and purchasing of dairy products for use as functional and nutritional ingredients.

Dry Milk Samples

ADPI members and non-members can order one low- and one high-heat NDM sample (250 grams each) to be used for the purposes of plotting standard curves (usually 12 curves in one set) in determining the undenatured whey protein nitrogen (WPN) by the modified Harland-Ashworth Method. 

Dairy Product Standards Book

Access to the entire version of the Dairy Product Standards Book is a benefit of membership in ADPI. Members of ADPI can now access all product standards online in our Ingredient Resource Center for Members.
