An online store will be available in the coming months for orders to be placed online. In the interim, to order any of the following publications, please contact Dan Meyer, Director of Technical Services, at dmeyer@adpi.org.

Dairy Ingredient Standards Book

This all-inclusive reference book of dairy ingredient industry standards includes: 

  • product definitions;
  • compositional analysis;
  • specific grading requirements for Grade A, Extra Grade and Standard Grade products; 
  • common methods of sampling and analysis; 
  • summary produced by the University of Wisconsin’s Center for Dairy Research describing the full range of dairy ingredient products – what they are and how they are produced.

These ADPI Standards are designed as industry standards for U.S. produced dairy ingredients, and are therefore neither binding nor enforceable. The standards have been developed with a sufficiently broad framework to allow for individual brand identity and innovation within the standard. The Dairy Ingredient Standards booklet is available for purchase in a PDF electronic format for non-members; ADPI members will have complete access to the Book via the Ingredient Resource Center beginning in early summer 2022.

We hope that these standards and the additional information in this book 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.

The book is conveniently divided into three (3) sections:

  • MILK: Milk-derived dairy ingredients
  • WHEY: Whey-derived dairy ingredients
  • PROCESS: A summary of dairy ingredient products and processing compiled by WCDR

Dairy Products Utilization and Production Trends

ADPI is the only organization that provides this unique compilation of industry-wide data on the utilization of ingredients and production trends in the U.S. on dairy ingredients. Each year, ADPI collects market data from its members and other dairy industry participants on ways in which they utilize dairy ingredients. 

Participants in the survey included ADPI members, other cooperating processors, distributors and resellers.

In addition to the commercial utilization data compiled by ADPI, the publication also contains a wealth of information about dairy ingredients including: production figures, export volumes, and other key industry statistics. 

Produced as an annual publication in an easily accessible PDF format, this resource is available to ADPI members as a member benefit. 

Dry Milk Section: This 2020 compilation of condensed and dry milks utilization represents the 73rd annual industry-wide survey of end-users. This data is intended to indicate market patterns and serve as a guide in directing promotional efforts to continue the expansion of commercial markets.

Whey Product Section: This 2020 compilation of whey products utilization represents the 46th annual industry-wide survey of end-uses for whey products. With such comprehensive industry coverage, projections have been made from the Census data to the total industry. This data is intended to indicate market patterns and serve as a guide in directing promotional efforts to continue the expansion of commercial markets.
