Sweet Whey Powder: Introduction

The sweet whey powder is obtained by spray-drying the fresh whey liquid. The whey liquid is obtained from during the manufacturing of cheese. There can be two sources from which the sweet whey powder can be obtained. One is during the cheese pressing of the cheeses such as mozzarella, cheddar, and Swiss cheese. The other is when using rennet for cheese making. The other cheese types result in the making of the acid whey protein.

If there are preservatives or artificial ingredients added during the cheese making, the resulting sweet whey powder will contain the traces of the preservatives thus making the sweet whey powder conventional.

The sweet whey powder contains almost 70% lactose content. But the companies are launching new products that contain a less amount of lactose.
