MILK PERMEATE POWDER

Freshness, flavor, and consistency sets our permeate apart

IdaPro Milk Permeate Powder

We manufacture IdaPro MPP using fresh, pasteurized skim milk with our proven low-heat membrane filtration process.

Idaho Milk Products is proud to offer a variety of high-quality dairy ingredients for food, including milk protein isolates and concentrates, as well as our IdaPro Milk Permeate Powder, or MPP.

We separate proteins and carbohydrates using ultra-filtration and dia-filtration processes, along with a portion of the water-soluble vitamins and minerals that flow into the milk permeate product. Unlike whey permeate, which is made from byproducts of the cheese-making process, IdaPro MPP contains nothing other than what is found in fresh cow’s milk. In further contrast to whey permeate, IdaPro MPP is non-hygroscopic, with a near-neutral pH and a sweet, bland, milky flavor and aroma.

Milk permeate powder is typically 85% lactose (minimum 80%), 3% protein, and 9% ash with free moisture levels at 1.5% or below. The total moisture level averages 5% with free moisture at 1.5% or below.

We designed IdaPro MPP to be the highest quality milk permeate available on the market today. It is Grade A and manufactured specifically for the food market.

Ideal Applications of IdaPro Milk Permeate Powder

The versatility of IdaPro Milk Permeate Powder is virtually limitless. MPP is useful in dairy products such as dairy-based blends, cultured dairy products, frozen sweets and desserts like ice cream or other frozen novelty ice creams, as well as baking and confections. This product can also be used as a replacement for maltodextrin, as a filler in nutritional products, and in the standardization of dairy blends and skim milk powder.

When baking or creating other popular confections, our IdaPro MPP is the best choice for substituting skim milk powders, lactose, or whey powder. In most applications, milk permeate can be used in place of sweet whey powder at a ratio of roughly one-to-one. MPP offers comparable browning attributes while also maintaining better flavor profiles when compared to whey powder and, typically, carries a lower cost.

Use MPP to sustain the volume of minerals in milk permeate, and to reduce sodium levels without compromising flavor. Look to our MPP product to help reduce ingredient costs while boosting both yield and taste.

IdaPro MPP vs. Whey Permeate Powder

For many dairy-based blends and in many different products, milk permeate is a vital production component. IdaPro Milk Permeate Powder is among the most coveted thanks to our innovative production process and commitment to quality. Its sweet and mild milky flavor, along with the consistent size of the permeate crystals, ensures consistency and quality in the resulting product, as well as the ability to easily standardize protein content.

Our MPP offers multiple advantages over whey powder. It provides superior performance with better taste and, whereas whey powders are hygroscopic, our non-hygroscopic MPP makes it exceptionally easy to use in blending applications.

Dairy-based blends

IdaPro MPP is a coveted ingredient in many dairy blends because of its mild, sweet, milky flavor, non-hygroscopic nature, and uniform crystal size. These characteristics enhance ease of blending for the manufacturer and ease of use for the end-user.

IdaPro MPP is unique because it is filtered from fresh skim milk and dried separately, as opposed to whey permeate powder which is derived from the cheese-making process. The lactose portion of milk permeate is a minimum of 80 percent, with a remainder of naturally occurring minerals and vitamins with slight amounts of protein and fat. Milk permeate is added to dairy-based blends as a dairy-based bulking agent, especially in blends where protein is being standardized. The International Codex Standards adopted by the international community allow only milk permeate and lactose for use in standardizing nonfat dried milk and skim milk protein levels.

IdaPro MPP is available in multi-walled paper bags with a double polyethylene liner (25 kilograms net content) or in polyethylene-lined totes (1,000 kilograms net content).
