Lactalis Ingredients completes its offer of skimmed milk powder with a high heat, heat-stable (HHHS) quality. This new reference is suitable for condensed milk producers looking for a skimmed milk powder heat-stable for their process.
The condensed milk, a dynamic market driven by the Middle East and Latin America
Consumption of evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk continues to grow and is expected to register an average annual growth of 2% from 2019 to 2024. This growth comes from Latin America, the Middle East, and to a lesser extent from Asia. Using fresh local milk to produce dairy products in these areas is not always easy, because of the low milk collection. That is why some producers have to use milk powders as a substitute for liquid milk.
Skimmed milk powder HHHS, a specific quality adapted to the production of condensed milk
Lactalis Ingredients launches a new reference of skimmed milk powder in its plant of Ravensburg, Germany. This skimmed milk powder, called HHHS, is suitable for the production of evaporated and sweetened condensed milk, as it is stable at in-can sterilisation temperature.
The powder is made by drying fresh pasteurised skimmed milk, which undergoes a specific heat treatment. The goal of this heat treatment is to denature the protein to obtain a heat-stable powder and prevent the coagulation of the protein during the production of condensed milk.
