Whey Protein Concentrate

Whey Protein Concentrate is the product obtained by the removal of sufficient non-protein constituents from whey so that the finished dry product contains not less than 25% protein. Whey Protein Concentrate is produced by physical separation techniques such as precipitation, filtration, or dialysis. As with whey, whey protein concentrate can be used as a fluid, concentrate, or dry product form. The acidity of whey protein concentrate may be adjusted by the addition of safe and suitable pH-adjusting ingredients.
