Whey Powders

Foodcom S.A. supplies its partners with a wide range of high-quality whey powders.


Whey is a liquid obtained through the separation from the curd after the milk is coagulated in the cheese-making process. The water is then removed from the whey and a high-value milk protein product is obtained in the form of a loose, homogenous powder of high solubility rate. Such a form allows for extended shelf life and easy storage. 


Whey Powders are characterized by high levels of lactose and retain almost 50% of the nutritional value from the original milk. They also present many functional properties widely used in the manufacture of dairy-based products, milk-derived foodstuff, and animal nutrition.



Whey derivatives: Sweet Whey Powder (SWP), Acid Whey Powder (AWP), Demineralized Whey Powder (DEMI)

 Sweet Whey Powder (SWP) is produced by drying Sweet Whey Concentrate - a by-product from hard cheese production. It is an excellent source of carbohydrates and dairy solids. High levels of lactose in SWP are used for the enhancement of color during cooking and baking with the use of high temperatures. Sweet Whey Powder is widely used in the production of dairy-based products, confectionery, and baking goods as well as in the meat and pharmaceutical industry. 

SWP is also an ingredient of milk substitutes and feed for agricultural animals. 


Acid Whey Powder (AWP) is a by-product of cheese or acid casein production with the use of microbial fermentation. AWP is characterized by lower lactose content and thus the taste is more acidic than sweet. It is used as an ingredient in many processed foods e.g. bread, crackers, meats, pastries as well as in chocolate and confectionery products. Acid Whey Powder can be also used in the production of animal feed as an economical substitute for Sweet Whey Powder in piglet feed. Acid Whey powder is also used in low-pH milk replacers. 


Demineralized Whey Powder (DEMI) is obtained by eliminating most of the minerals (70-90%) from liquid sweet whey. DEMI is a popular ingredient of food premixes, creamers, confectionery, nutrition drinks, cream fillings, and soups. Demineralized whey powder (90% demineralization) is also widely used in the production of infant formula as well as in the manufacture of animal feed for horses and chickens.



Permeates: Whey permeate 

Whey permeate is characterized by high levels of lactose but low protein content and thus can be used in the manufacturing of sweets, baking goods, chocolate, and dry mixes. Permeate can be used as a substitute for sucrose and corn syrups. It is also used as a filler and a replacer for lactose, SWP, or demineralized whey powder. Moreover, permeate is commonly used as a bulking agent, flavor enhancer, and emulsion stabilizer.



Proteins: Whey Protein Concentrate 80, Whey Protein Concentrate 35, Whey Protein Isolate 

 Whey Protein Concentrates in the form of powder are obtained in the production of sweet whey with the use of an advanced ultrafiltration process at very low temperatures. Such treatment reduces a certain amount of non-protein components in order to receive a product with the desired protein level. Whey Protein Concentrates 35 and 80 are commonly used in diet foods and sports nutrition, confectionery, baking goods, and the meat industry. They can also be used as substitutes for eggs in many products thus lowering the risk of possible contamination. Whey Protein Concentrate 35 is commonly used as a cost-efficient substitute for Skimmed Milk Powder.


Whey Protein Isolate is obtained by concentration and purification of Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC). WPI is considered a product of the highest purity and concentration of protein. WPI consists of at least 85% of protein and little lactose (less than 1%) - which can be a huge advantage for people with lactose intolerance. Whey Protein Isolate is a commonly used component of sport nutrition products, dietary foodstuffs, and baby foods.
