Whey is obtained as a by-product of cheese that is rich in protein and contains less milk fat. Demineralized whey is a yellowish free flowing powder that tastes like milk. During production of cheese, various salts are added to milk, making whey a rich source of calcium, phosphorus, and potassium. However, these minerals are unsuitable for infant food, and thus infant food formulations demand demineralized whey protein ingredients. A variety of techniques are utilized in demineralization procedure such as nanofiltration, ion exchange chromatography, electro-dialysis, and others. Whey variants D90 and D70 are commonly utilized in infant food.
Growth in demand for protein-rich diet and increase in number of infants are major factors that drive the growth of the global demineralized whey powder ingredient market. Key manufacturers supplying infant formula are exploring techniques to produce infant products containing minimum mineral content, which fuels the market growth. For instance, Agrana Starch supplies both organic and conventional ingredients for infant food formulations, which do not contain any artificial flavorings, preservatives, gluten, and colorants. However, high cost of demineralized whey powder ingredients and weak distribution network in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil are major factors that hinder the market growth. Increase in use of demineralized whey powder ingredient products in various industries, including bakery, is expected to provide potential growth opportunities for market expansion.
