Milk permeate is a co-product of the production of the Milk Protein Concentrate. It is obtained after the milk ultrafiltration process of protein and fat extraction. The final product is obtained with the use of spray drying technology. 


Milk permeate has a similar composition to whey permeate, however, the latter undergoes more processing steps thus, the organoleptic profile may differ. Typically, milk permeate is found in the form of free-flowing powder characterized by a clean, consistent taste and pale cream color.



The applications of milk permeate offer a wide range of use including confectionery, desserts, beverages, bakery, ice creams, candy, chocolate, and sweets. 

Milk permeate is also an ingredient of calves and pig feed, typically used as filler. 


Technical aspects 

Milk permeate is characterized by high levels of milk salt and lactose. It also shows water-retention, crystallization, and emulsification properties as well as sweetness elimination. The product is also a great bulking agent. It is also an important ingredient in the Maillard reaction allowing for taste enhancement and caramelized flavor.

It can also be used by the dairy industry to standardize milk. Milk permeate application also allows for a cost-efficient way of sodium reduction.
