Rapidly Analyzing Moisture and Fat Content in Dairy Powders
The global milk powder market has been increasing over the past decade and is expected to have a compound annual growth rate of 4.4% through 2025. Milk powders are used to increase the shelf life of milk without using refrigeration. There are various types of dairy powders including, whole milk powder, skimmed milk powder, and various whey-based powders. They are widely consumed globally due to their nutritional benefits, which make them important for infant formulas, nutritional drinks, and other baked products. Due to its nutritional value, it is increasingly important for dairy producers to be able to rapidly analyze the fat content of the milk powders during production to maximize not only time savings, but to ensure that the highest quality product is being made.
