Alliance Enterprises of SE Wisconsin, Sturtevant, Wis., says a Minnesota dairy processor is using its Benelact process to produce milk with reduced cholesterol levels. The inline process extracts cholesterol found in the membranes of fat globules. It is said to remove up to 90% of cholesterol from milk without altering the taste or the nutritional content of dairy foods. Art Garcia, Benelact sales director, says dairy processors can license the technology from Alliance, or they can buy raw milk from the Minnesota facility. He said food manufacturers are conducting tests and plan to launch reduced-cholesterol dairy foods this quarter.
