Milk substitutes

Milk substitutes are used to replace milk powder in industrial products. A milk substitute is a product formulated with dairy ingredients to which fat is either added or not.

There are two types of milk substitutes :

  • Fat : contain butter or vegetable fat. They are used to replace 26% milk powder.
  • Fat-free : do not contain fat, they are used to fully or partially replace skimmed milk powder.

Often, milk replacers are used to optimize production costs while retaining the properties of the formulated product.
