Goat Milk Powder

Today, Evaporated and Powdered Goat milk are manufactured and marketed in most part of the world besides the United States. Evaporation is usually done under reduced pressure, primarily to allow boiling at a lower temperature to prevent heat damage. Powdered products available include Full Cream milk powder, Skim milk, Whey powder, milk cream, infant foods and etc.,

Full cream goat milk powder - The high fat content of full cream goat milk powder imparts it with a creamy flavor, and renders it suitable for a wide range of applications in the food industry. Full cream goat milk powder is manufactured by spray-drying whole fresh goat milk. The goat milk powder contains the natural content of fat and protein present at the time the goat milk is spray-dried. These contents are subject to seasonal fluctuation. However the process can be modified to incorporate the standardization of the fat and protein content, should this be required for a specific application.

Full cream goat milk powder is suitable for use in a wide variety of foods such as, for example, dairy drinks and desserts, cheese, ice-cream, infant and follow-on formulae, nutritional supplements and tablets.

Skimmed goat milk powder - Certain applications may require the use of a goat milk powder with a lower fat content. Therefore, skimmed goat milk powder is developed. Skimmed goat milk powder is manufactured by spray-drying the skimmed goat milk that remains subsequent to the separation of the fat from the whole goat milk. Skimmed goat milk powder is suitable for use in a wide variety of foods such as, for example, dairy drinks and desserts, cheese, ice-cream, infant and follow-on formulae, nutritional supplements and tablets.

Goat milk whey powder - Goat milk whey powder is a new and unique product! Suppliers of whey powder may offer a mixed whey powder, made from whey powder based on different sorts of milk. Goat whey powder is obtained by concentrating and drying the whey produced during the manufacture of goat cheese. If so required, the whey can be partially desalted prior to drying. Goat milk whey powder and partially desalted goat milk whey powder can be used as an ingredient in children and dietary foods, in dairy products, such as yoghurt, in bakery products, and in confectionery.

Goat milk cream - Goat milk cream is made by separating fresh goat milk into cream and skim milk. The goat cream is then pasteurized and packaged. Goat milk cream is often used in the ice-cream industry. It is also particularly appropriate for the standardization of cheese milk. Different ingredients may be added (sugar and stabilizers, for example).

Flavored goat milk - It is milk to which some flavors have been added. When the term milk is used the product should contain a milk fat percentage of a least equal to the minimum legal requirement for market milk. But when the fat level is lower (1-2 per cent) the term ‘drink’ should be used.

Acidophilus Milk - It is fermented milk, produced by development in milk of a culture of Lactobacillus acidophilus. It is claimed that acidophilus milk has therapeutic and health promoting properties. It is also claimed that the growth of Lactobacillus acidophilus under the conditions existing in the intestinal tract will replace undesirable putrefactive fermentation with a beneficial lactic fermentation.

Carrot Milk - The rich nutrient content of carrot, especially, Vitamin A and its precursor carotene can not be questioned. It is also rich in health giving fibre. Some people relish carrot as such in its raw form and some cook and use it. Another form of utilization is extraction of juice from carrot. But carrot juice when consumed as such will not be tasty. It has to be added with sugar. Just to make the carrot juice tasty and at the same time utilize the nutrients present in the juice in its natural form, carrot juice can be added with goat milk to make “CARROT MILK”.
