Different manufacturing processes for whey protein concentrate
Whey, or serum, proteins, are soluble and make up about 20% of milk proteins. Depending on the raw material and process used, and the concentration rate, a variety of products with different nutritional qualities and functionalities can be created.
Whey Protein Concentrate
Protein derived from whey
Whey proteins (or serum proteins) come from the cheese and / or casein production process. Depending on the cheese technologies used, different qualities of whey are obtained (acidity, composition, etc.).
Protein directly derived from milk
Serum proteins can also be directly derived from milk through processes that combine different membrane operations. Proteins derived through this way are called native proteins. This process does not require a milk coagulation phase and allows extraction and concentration of proteins through purely physical processes, at low temperature. This innovative process, used by Eurial I&N to produce WPC80, protects proteins against denaturation and allows the nutritional and functional qualities of proteins to be preserved.
Our product, Serigel ™, is made from casein whey: the proteins therefore do not undergo acidification, which allows their functionality to be preserved. Serigel is particularly recommended for and providing gelling features and texture in yoghurts.
A composition that delivers high nutritional and functional value
Used in clinical nutrition for seniors or in sports nutrition, serum proteins are perfectly indicated in the constructionand maintenance of muscle mass, thanks to their high contents of essential amino acids and branched amino acids (BCAA’s). Consumed following physical exertion, these proteins promote muscle protein synthesis thanks to their high leucine content.
