Whey To Go - Whey Protein Concentrate: A New Zealand Success Story

This is a free, online, unrevised edition of the book Whey to Go - Whey protein concentrate, A New Zealand Success Story, which was published by Ngaio Press in 2014. It tells the story of an exceptionally innovative period in the history of the New Zealand dairy industry, the development of ultrafiltration, a technology that enabled the production of a new range of food ingredients, whey protein concentrates (WPCs). These were so valuable that whey, previously a waste by-product, became the basis of a profitable industry.

Whey to Go was written by some of those early pioneers: Ken Kirkpatrick, Kevin Marshall, Dave Woodhams, Mike Matthews, Peter Hobman, Lee Huffman, Jim Harper, Robin Fenwick, and Arthur Wilson.

Through the 60s, 70s and 80s, they led a group of talented young technologists, scientists and marketers in developing brand new products and processing technologies. From early development work and pilot plant trials at the NZDRI (now Fonterra Research Centre), to full-scale industrial production on different plants at several different dairy companies (in the days before Fonterra), and liaison with multinational customers, and international markets.

The book is not only a historical record, but a fine case study of the many disciplines involved in innovation and commercialisation in the food industry. It is the fifth and latest food science, technology and engineering text to be provided online and free by NZIFST, and makes a suitable companion to those other texts covering food product development and food engineering.

The book remains subject to copyright but may be downloaded for personal use.
