Lactose is made through the second stage of filtration after permeate is made. As the whey or permeate is ran through the filter, it isolates the lactose. The lactose is sent to an evaporator, then a crystallizer, and finally to a dryer before being put in a 25kg bag or a metric ton tote and shipped to you.


Lactose is heavily regulated with precise specifications for human consumption set by the U.S. Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. At Milk Specialties Global, our lactose is:

  • Greater than 99% lactose,
  • Protein is less than 0.30
  • Ash of less than 0.30
  • Moisture of less than 0.50.
