Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC) is the substance obtained by the partial removal of sufficient non-protein constituents (lactose and minerals) from skim milk so that the finished dry product contains 42% or more protein by weight. MPC may be produced by filtration (Microfiltration, Ultrafiltration & Diafiltration), dialysis or any other process by which all or part of the lactose is removed by a safe and suitable procedure. It contains the casein and whey proteins in their original proportions found in milk, without combining separately produced casein (caseinate) and whey proteins.

Whey protein concentrate is a white to light cream-colored product with a bland, clean flavor. It is manufactured by drying the material resulting from the removal of sufficient non-protein constituents from pasteurized whey so that the finished dry product contains 25% or more protein. The non-protein constituents are removed by physical separation techniques such as precipitation, filtration or dialysis. Safe and suitable pH-adjusting ingredients can be used to adjust the acidity of WPC.
Grade "A" product must be produced with Grade "A" milk in a Grade "A" plant. All other parameters for Grade "A" products are the same as "Extra Grade."
