What are the sensory properties of Milk Protein Concentrate and Isolate?
Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC) and Milk Protein Isolate (MPI) is usually sold as a fine, white powder. In water, MPC/MPI forms a white, opaque dispersion of low viscosity – looking very similar to milk. MPC/MPI will remain suspended for prolonged periods of time in water. A well manufactured MPC/MPI will have no odor and a bland flavor profile. In water, a 10% dispersion of MPC/MPI has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
