Processing milk -- how concentrates help to save energy
Powdered milk is a vital ingredient in infant formula and also used in baked goods and confectionary products. It is manufactured using an energy-intensive process chain that involves concentrating and drying milk. Researchers at Technische Universität München are investigating energy-efficient ways of making concentrates -- with promising results: By combining different membrane separation processes, they have succeeded in reducing the amount of energy required to concentrate milk by around 20 percent.
