ELMHURST, IL – The American Dairy Products Institute (ADPI) is proud to announce a recently released official ADPI standard for Dry Blend Infant Formula Grade Lactose. As the world’s go-to authority on dairy ingredients, ADPI is committed to the development of dairy ingredient standards and specifications.
An important part of the mission of ADPI 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 pleased to add this new standard to the portfolio which defines dry blend lactose for infant formula,” said Blake Anderson, ADPI President and CEO.
ADPI urges the industry to use ADPI product standards as a guide in the manufacturing, marketing and purchasing of dairy products for use as functional and nutritional ingredients.
“We hope that these industry standards set by ADPI will provide the industry and our customers with a better understanding of the function and makeup of the many nutritious dry dairy ingredients produced in the U.S. and become globally recognized terms of reference for these products,” stated Anderson.
All ADPI Product Standards are available for industry use. ADPI members have full access to view and download standards in the Ingredient Resource Center for Members section of the ADPI website.
If you are not an ADPI member, the ADPI Dairy Ingredients Standards Book is available for purchase at www.ADPI.org and provided as a link to an online viewable and downloadable pdf. Basic standard information is also available in the Ingredient Resource Center.
