BISAC: HEA017000

Whey proteins are now one of the most important products in food processing industries. Profit of whey proteins in food applications include its high amino acid content; low calorie, fat, and sodium content; high emulsification and capacity and compatibility with other ingredients. This book discusses the functional properties of whey proteins along with the production and health benefits of consuming these proteins. (Imprint: Nova)
