Lactose and Whey Byproducts

Lactose is a complex sugar also named disaccharide, consisting of two simple sugars: glucose and galactose. Its molecular chemical formula is C12H22O11. It is produced from whey, the liquid portion coming from milk coagulation, also called serum. Whey is a highly nutritious product that contains proteins, vitamins, lactose, water and very little fat. Several methods make it possible to extract the various components to be recovered or to adapt the whey to specific applications such as baby food, chocolate manufacturing or pastry and bakery markets.
