Dairy Management Inc. and leading dairy researchers, including many from the National Dairy Foods Research Center program, will present a symposium on milk protein fractionation from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on July 13, at the 2009 American Dairy Science Association Annual Meeting in Montreal, Quebec.
Milk is a rich source of organic and inorganic nutrients that can be fractionated into a wide range of milk components and used as food ingredients. This symposium will share recent advances in research on cutting-edge processes in milk protein fractionation such as the separation of whey proteins directly from skim milk, membrane fractionation of milk proteins from whole milk, application of charged membranes on whey protein streams and the use of supercritical carbon dioxide in milk protein fractionation. In addition, the presentations will provide a detailed comparison of flavor chemistry, sensory properties and functional properties of whey proteins isolated from milk and whey.
