As it is derived from milk, MPC is not vegan. However, dairy products are considered vegetarian. A vegan avoids all animal products, including eggs and dairy, while vegetarians tend to consume dairy products and eggs. Vegetarianism is usually a diet, while veganism is a lifestyle.
Due to proprietary processing, IdaPlus 1085 provides more serum phase casein than a standard MPC. The serum phase casein interacts with whey proteins better than casein micelles, which in turn provides a stronger network in a yogurt white mass, resulting in significantly higher gel strength.
When adding protein to yogurt, the faster and more efficient the dispersion and hydration of the protein, the better the texture and appearance. Our functional IdaPlus 1085 protein offers significantly faster dispersion and hydration, including in colder temperatures, compared to standard MPCs. By u… Learn More
Whey protein is fast-digesting, meaning the proteins empty from the stomach quickly, resulting in a rapid and substantial increase in amino acids, which aids in muscle synthesis. Casein protein, however, is slow-releasing. Casein consumption results in a prolonged increase in blood amino acids, whic… Learn More
WPC is much less heat stable than MPC. When WPC is heated under ultra-high temperatures or retort conditions, the native whey unfolds and aggregates, causing gelling. Whey proteins also denature and lose solubility when exposed to ultra-high temperatures. As a result, WPCs cannot be used in large am… Learn More
MPCs/MPIs have a clean, light, milky flavor compared to WPCs/WPIs. As WPC/WPIs are a byproduct of cheese production, they can have various off-flavors due to processing such as sourness, bitterness, and broth-like. These off-flavors result from high usage levels of sodium, potassium, and chlorine. W… Learn More
To make a claim about lactose in a food product, one is making a nutrient content claim. A nutrient content claim on a food label characterizes how much of that particular nutrient is present in the food. It does not link the nutrient with a specific disease or health condition. Nutrient content cla… Learn More
If one is talking about nutritional quality, it is difficult to accurately assess the nutritional quality of a single protein when it is mixed with other nutrients in a consumer product. For that reason, protein nutritional quality is usually assessed on a single protein without any additional nutri… Learn More
The term, Milk Protein Concentrate, was modeled after the already existing name for protein that had been concentrated from cheese whey by ultrafiltration, Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC). In spite of the fact that MPC is significantly different from WPC, many people today continue to confuse the two… Learn More
By the method used to run an amino acid assay, the amide group on glutamine is sheared off during the breaking of peptide bonds, changing the glutamine into glutamic acid. They are not the same thing…but by an amino acid assay, glutamine always shows up as glutamic acid. Unfortunately, it does… Learn More
