Protein Standardization of Milk and Milk Products – Report on Responses to Three IDF Questionnaires
by IDF Group of Experts D47 – Standardization of the protein content of milk (See also IDF Special Issue 9502)
An analysis of replies to Questionnaire 493/D distributed by Group D47 to IDF NCs is presented. Questionnaire 694/D was intended to verify some of the data received from the first questionnaire, and Questionnaire 594/D (issued at the same time) sought to identify a preferred minimum protein content of preserved milk products, and sought comment on proposed changes in Codex standards to allow for the protein standardization of preserved milk products, labelling of protein-standardized products, and possible changes to Article 1.2 of the Codex Code of Principles Concerning Milk and Milk Products.
Questionnaires 493/D, 594/D and 694/D provide valuable information on the subject of the protein standardization of milk products.
