Milk is an essential food in our diet because of its balanced composition of nutrients (proteins, lipids, glucids and minerals). It is used for the preparation of various food and beverage products. Dairy ingredients are food ingredients made from milk and are used in preparing various food products such as ice creams, chocolate, sports food, clinical nutrition, bakery-snacks, pork meat, ready-to-eat, prepared deserts and soups. Dairy ingredients are divided into various categories such as milk powder (dried form of milk manufactured by evaporating milk to dryness. Main purpose of drying milk is to preserve it as milk powder has longer shelf life than liquid milk and does not need to be refrigerated, due to its low moisture content), whey ingredients, milk protein concentrates & milk protein isolates (substance obtained by partial removal of non-protein constituents such as, lactose and minerals from skim milk so that the finished dry product contains 90% or more protein by weight) and lactose & its derivatives. Major end-users of dairy ingredients are bakery & confectionery, dairy, convenience foods, sports & clinical nutrition products.
Asia-Pacific is the largest diary ingredients market followed by Europe and North America. Milk powder holds the largest share in global diary ingredients market. Milk protein concentrates & milk protein isolates have high growth prospects due to increasing sports activities globally as they have high usage as sports supplements. Whey proteins contain glutamine which helps muscle glycogen replenishment and prevent decline in immune function from overtraining. It also contains high levels of arginine and lysine that may stimulate growth hormone release and an increase in muscle mass. Consumers are increasingly becoming more active on maintaining a good health and are conscious to include various nutraceuticals food products (including dairy ingredients) in their regular diet.
