Acid Whey Powder: Market Outlook

For many years, there has been an increase in food processing, which has led to the usage of new types of food additives such as processing agents, nutritional agents, preservatives, acid regulators, flavorings, sensory agents, baking agents, color retention agents, and more. Preservatives are certain substances that are added to most food items, which help prevent the food from decomposition due to certain microbial growth.

Whey is a kind of liquid milk product obtained during the manufacture of casein, cheese, or other similar product separation from curd after coagulation of the milk and/or of products obtained from milk. Coagulation is obtained through rennet type enzymes. Whey powder is a certain milk powder that is obtained after drying the liquid whey. Acid whey powder is a dried milk product while manufacturing casein, cheese, and other similar products, in which coagulation is done by acidification. Acid whey powder is essentially used as a preservative in various food products and pharmaceuticals.

Acid whey powder has various uses in the food industry, apart from being a preservative. As a food additive, acid whey powder is used as an extender and binder for many packaged and canned foods such as stews, soups, beef preparations, sausages, and other food products.

Acid Whey Powder and its Various Properties

Acid whey powder is derived during the manufacturing of acid casein, and soft white cheese such as Petit Suisse cheese, mascarpone, and ricotta. The manufacturing of acid whey powder is done in three ways. The first way to produce acid whey powder is by the coagulation of milk using an acidifier. Firm, permeable, and brittle curd is then produced, which is acid whey powder. The second way to produce acid whey powder is by drying fresh whey that is obtained from white cheese. This process also includes microbial fermentation, which helps lowering the milk pH that helps changing the lactose into lactic acid. The acid obtained is acid whey powder. The third way of obtaining acid whey powder is from manufacturing casein. This is typically done by forming a casein precipitate using sulphuric acid, and forms acid whey powder.

A majority of acid whey powder is prepared from the manufacturing of Greek yogurt in the U.S. Annually, the U.S. Greek yogurt market generates billions of kgs of acid whey powder. These days, food scientists and food manufacturing companies are seeking many ways of using acid whey powder economically, and not harming the environment.
