Milk Replacers

Recipes / Applications


Milk is a significant ingredient in many food products and as a dairy commodity.  Milk can be subject to cycles of price and supply, plus few formulations require all the functional benefits that are provided by milk.  There are proven, reliable and cost-effective ways to replace milk in formulations without compromising the performance that it provides.  Protelac®, Prestige® and Parmalat® milk replacers have been specifically designed to fulfill this mandate.

Functional by Design

Protelac®, Prestige® and Parmalat® are multi-component blends that are robustly designed to be compatible with particular formulations, applications and processing requirements. Lactalis Canada is able to tailor a milk replacer for any particular end use; such as ice cream, cereals, instant dry mixes and caramels.

Protelac®, Prestige® and Parmalat® consistently deliver nutritional qualities and the functional attributes required to maintain a food product’s quality and help improve the bottom line. Protein modification technology enhances the stabilizing properties of dairy proteins, delivering a blend that performs like skim milk solids.

Formulated Success

Much care is taken in the manufacture of Protelac®, Prestige® and Parmalat® milk replacers from raw material to finished products. Stringent controls of milk and whey supply and decades of dairy experience ensure consistent high quality products that perform reliably in any application.

Parmalat® milk replacers are available in either powder or liquid format allowing little effort and inconvenience to incorporate them. All are Kosher.

Improve Cost Efficiency

Each Prestige®, Protelac® and Parmalat® milk replacer is an all-natural, advanced technology ingredient specifically designed to replace the functionality and taste of milk solids in your formulation while generating substantial cost savings verses skim milk (non fat dry milk).
