Recombined milk

Many global markets lack the conditions – geography and climate – for producing their own fresh milk, have uneven milk production, or find the distances to transport fresh milk are too great to be feasible.​​ Consequently, the market for recombined milk continues to grow – yet consumers still place high demands on quality and value. With over 70 years of experience in dairy production, our complete portfolio of outstanding solutions for recombined milk, enables leaner and smarter line configurations that offer exceptional production availability, efficiency, flexibility, and consistent product quality for the lowest possible total cost of ownership.

What is recombined milk?

Recombined milk is the liquid milk obtained by adding skim milk powder (SMP) to water and adding milk fat separately to achieve the desired fat and total solids content. Recombined milk can be used for the same purposes as raw milk: drinking, yoghurt production, cheese production, etc.

Recombined UHT milk: batch production

Batch production is the traditional approach to recombined milk. It gives you the lowest investment cost, but the operational costs are generally high. Batch production is a great solution for small volumes. Tetra Pak can also offer this configuration with elimination of the pasteurization step.
