The American Dairy Products Institute (ADPI) is restoring full public access to its ADPI Ingredient Standards, an extensive and ever-expanding library which encompasses many of the dairy industry’s broad offering of commodity and value-added products. This resolution strengthens ADPI’s long-established role as the standard-setting organization for dairy.

ADPI has a 100-year legacy of dairy industry leadership, and our Ingredient Standards are the cornerstone of our knowledge-based approach to this leadership role. Its current range of Ingredient Standards, developed by technical and marketing experts from our member organizations, not only define fundamental dairy ingredients such as milk powders, but also a host of established or emerging ingredients that are on the competitive edge of functionality and nutrition, such as protein concentrates, isolates, and specific bioactive protein and lipid fractions.

"The ADPI catalog consists of more than 30 standards representing an even greater number of individual dairy ingredients — everything from alpha-lactalbumin to whole milk powder. And the count is growing: we currently have two entirely new documents pending approval by our Standards Committee, with two more related standards immediately following those, and two more in the development queue," the organization stated.
