CP Kelco Microparticulated Whey Protein Concentrate
As the inventors of microparticulation of whey protein concentrate, CP Kelco manufactures and markets SIMPLESSE® Microparticulated Whey Protein Concentrate as a dairy ingredient made from whey protein concentrate. The whey protein concentrate undergoes a unique process, resulting in uniform protein particles with an average diameter of one micron. The microparticulation process denatures the protein to impart a decreased tendency to aggregate and gel upon heating.
Source: Whey protein concentrate
Function: Emulsion, foam stabilization, fat mimicking
Description: A multi-functional dairy ingredient made from whey protein concentrate that undergoes a unique microparticulation process.
SIMPLESSE provides emulsion and foam stabilization, heat and pH stability, texture, creaminess and smoothness in a wide range of full-fat and low-fat applications.
Due to the consistency and size of the microparticles, SIMPLESSE behaves similarly to emulsified oil droplets in terms of mouthfeel and light scattering. This characteristic allows SIMPLESSE to be used in low sugar/low calorie drinks, as well as low fat and full fat drinks, to add mouthfeel, creaminess and opacity without the negative impacts of fat.
SIMPLESSE, being a dairy ingredient and containing 53% protein, can be used to support a ‘whey protein’ label claim, and adds a pleasant dairy note to beverages.
