Our medium heat skimmed milk powders

Our milk powders are obtained using a very simple manufacturing process :

  • We collect our milk from our members’ farms,
  • Then we skim it,
  • Pasteurize it,
  • Concentrate it,
  • And last, we dry it by spraying it on our drying towers.

The collected milk, used to make our powders, is collected within a maximum radius of 100 km around our production sites.

As a result, we obtain milk powders that are 100% French made, with optimal quality and traceability.

The milk contains 2 types of proteins :

  • Casein – large proteins, representing 80%
  • Serum proteins – small proteins representing 20%

These two types of proteins are very interesting from a functional and nutritional point of view.
They are complementary and have very different roles depending on whether they are processed thermally and/or mechanically.

Therefore, it becomes possible to infer their respective functionalities for the manufacture of products that include these ingredients in their recipes. We have these two types of proteins in our skimmed milk powders; however, during the drying process, we will denature our serum proteins which will then become more or less functional depending on the specific goal.

Our medium heat skimmed milk powders undergo a medium heat treatment during its manufacturing process. As a result, these powders will have a median WPNI value, i.e. they will have an average level of undenatured serum proteins per gramme of powder.

Therefore, these medium heat milk powders have good surface properties and a good hydration capacity. They are used in manufacturing applications for ice creams frozen products, and acidified products.
