WHEY HANDLING

Whey handling refers to the removal of fat and curd fines from whey. It may also include pasteurization and pre-concentration, in preparation for transport.

​​​​​​​​​​Whey handling equipment for concentrating and treating whey

​​We offer special equipment for concentrating and treating whey. Our method involves turning the proteins into globules and feeding them back into the cheese milk, where they help give the product a smooth mouth feel. This process is especially suitable for e.g. the small-scale production of fresh, high moisture cheeses.

It is also very environmentally friendly, since the treated whey proteins become part of the cheese, rather than being wasted. And producers get a higher yield from the same amount of raw ingredients, which means more profitable production. However, since the whey proteins absorb water there is a limit to how far you take this - the precise limit being determined by the type of cheese.
