Isolated Milk Phospholipids and MFGM

Process for isolating and producing a high milk phospholipid ingredient from a by-product of the dairy industry, also commonly known as Milk Fat Globule Membrane (MFGM).

The Need: Revolutionizing Acid Whey Utilization for Increased Profitability and Sustainability

The dairy industry faces a critical challenge in effectively utilizing acid whey, a by-product generated during the production of cheese and Greek yogurt. Currently, acid whey is considered undesirable due to its strong acidic taste, making it unsuitable for direct consumption and impractical for conversion into dry whey powder or whey protein concentrate. Disposing of acid whey is not only costly but also environmentally problematic, as its high protein and lactose content can contaminate water sources and negatively impact aquatic ecosystems. The need for a transformative solution to address this issue and turn acid whey into a valuable resource has been long-standing. Additionally, with the increasing demand for milk phospholipids in the food industry due to their perceived health benefits, there is an opportunity to tap into this demand and convert acid whey into a profitable and sustainable source of high milk phospholipids.

The Technology: Innovative Process for Isolating Phospholipids from Acid Whey

Our groundbreaking technology offers a revolutionary process for utilizing acid whey to produce high milk phospholipids efficiently. The process involves two key steps:

  1. Filtration and Enrichment: Acid whey is exposed to filtration, leading to the enrichment of phospholipids, a valuable component.

  2. Solubilization and Removal: The enriched acid whey is subjected to solubilization, effectively removing whey proteins and caseins, thereby isolating phospholipids.

This technology presents an eco-friendly and cost-effective approach to convert acid whey, a typically discarded by-product, into a valuable and commercially viable resource.

Commercial Applications: Transforming Acid Whey for Various Industries

The innovative technology holds vast potential for various commercial applications, including but not limited to:

  • Food Industry: The isolated high milk phospholipids can be utilized in food products to enhance gut health and cognitive development, particularly in infant formulas and functional foods.
