  • Hilmar Whey Protein: The Three Types

    Read a brief overview of all Hilmar Ingredients whey protein products.

    Hilmar Ingredients supplies whey protein made from sweet whey. Its primary source is our parent company's large-scale cheese operations--the freshest, highest quality whey stream available. From this we produce three different types of whey proteins:

    • Hilmar Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) – typically 80% protein
    • Hilmar Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) – typically +90% protein
    • Hilmar Whey Protein Hydrolysate (WPH) – typically 80% protein and enzymatically broken into smaller pieces called peptides

    Within the Hilmar whey protein concentrate line, we offer specialty proteins including lactose-free, high gelling and alpha-lactalbumin enriched. The Hilmar whey protein hydrolysate line includes several levels of hydrolysis for options in flavor, texture improvements and nutritional value. And the line of Hilmar whey protein isolates includes proteins for clear beverages, dry mix and low pH formulations.

    All Hilmar Ingredients whey proteins are Kosher and Halal approved, GMO-free and EU-conforming.

    Read a brief overview of all Hilmar Ingredients lactose products.

    The abundant source of whey permeate from our parent company's cheese/whey operation provides us with a unique and uninterrupted stream of high quality raw material. From this secure source and through extensive investment in refining processes, we can offer lactose in three purified grades:

    • Hilmar Edible Lactose – used for bakery, confection, meat, infant formula, conversion and fermentation
    • Hilmar Refined Edible – perfect in all the above, plus veterinary formulations
    • Hilmar Ultra Refined – ideal for applications such as powdered mixes where high purity and high surface area are important

    All Hilmar Ingredients lactose products are Kosher and Halal approved, GMO-free and EU-conforming.
