MPI - Milk Protein Isolate

MPIs, or Milk Protein Isolates, are products derived from milk and are used as high-quality protein sources.


It is important to note that, although MPIs (Milk Protein Isolates) are a rich source of proteins, individuals with milk allergies or food intolerances should consult a healthcare professional before including them in their diet.

Characteristics of MPIs (Milk Protein Isolates):

  • Origin: MPIs are derived from milk, mainly cow's milk. They generally contain two types of proteins: casein (majority) and whey protein.
  • Production Process: MPIs are produced by processing milk to isolate proteins from other components of milk, such as fats and carbohydrates. This process may include steps such as microfiltration, ultrafiltration, or chromatography.
  • Composition: Milk protein isolates are typically rich in proteins, with a high percentage of protein per serving. They may also contain variable amounts of fats, lactose, and minerals, depending on the manufacturing process.
  • Complete Amino Acid Profile: MPIs contain a complete amino acid profile, meaning they provide all essential amino acids needed by the body.
  • Digestibility: Milk proteins, including those in MPIs, are generally well-digested by most people. However, some individuals may be sensitive to lactose and may prefer alternatives.
  • Usage: MPIs are widely used as ingredients in the food industry to enrich various protein products such as protein bars, protein drinks, bakery products, etc.
  • Sports and Nutrition: Due to their amino acid profile and digestibility, MPIs are popular in the field of sports nutrition. They are often used as protein supplements to support muscle growth and recovery after exercise.
  • Weight Control: MPIs can also be used in weight control diets due to their high protein content, which can help promote satiety.
  • Lactose-Free Products: Some MPIs can be processed to reduce lactose content, making them more suitable for individuals with lactose intolerance.
