Whey Permeate

Also known as: Dairy Products Solids and Dairy Permeate.

Whey Permeate (also known as Dairy Products Solid or Dairy Permeate) is produced by the removal of protein and other solids from whey resulting in a product with a high concentration of lactose. Removal of the dairy constituents is accomplished by physical separation techniques such as filtration and diafiltration. The acidity of Dairy Permeate may be adjusted by the addition of safe and suitable pH adjusting ingredients. 

Whey (Dairy) Permeate, which meets the definition of Dairy Product Solids, is GRAS approved, and complies with all provisions of the U.S. Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.

ADPI members can access all product standards information through the “Ingredients Resource Center for Members.”

Whey Permeate is characterized by its white to cream color with a bland, clean flavor.

May be used as a direct replacement of other dairy solids in many food applications, including: bakery products and pizza crust dough; confectionary products; as a replacement for sucrose or corn syrups; to reduce the level of salt in formulated products; and for fermentation.

Milk/Whey Permeate may also be used to standardize Skim Milk Powder or Whole Milk Powder. 

Permeate can be a source of lactose and minerals required for the development of nutritional products for the feed sector – especially for baby animals.

Product should be stored and shipped in a cool, dry environment with temperatures below 80°F and relative humidity below 65%. Stocks should be rotated and utilized within 9 months-1 year.
