Dried Skimmed Milk or whey can be used to replace part of the cheese solids in the blend for processed cheese food or spread.
- Used in cooking.
- Skim-milk powder and whey powder promote the creaming process and improve spreadability, but the amount must not exceed 10% of the blend in order to avoid a sweet-salty taste, especially when young cheese is used and to prevent browning and crystallization owing to excess lactose in the processed cheese.
- No side effects are known.
- Not known.
