Got milk? Dairy contains a “complete” protein, making it a prime candidate for high-quality protein or nutrition products. This is driving a growing interest in dairy protein, making protein analysis more important than ever.
But just as not all protein is created the same, not all milk is created the same either. Protein levels can vary based on the health of the animals that produced it, how it was gathered, stored, and shipped, how it gets used in recipes, and various other factors, making dairy determination more important than ever.
In a recent article with FOOD-Lab International Technical, R&D Director Monika Partyka explains the use of LECO’s FP928 Protein Analyzer in a laboratory in Poland. The lab uses the FP928 to analyze approximately 600 protein samples in different types of foods per month. Partyka explains that by using the DUMAS method with our analyzer, the laboratory staff can focus on other tasks while the machine works fully automatically. Using the DUMAS method with FP928, the run time for each sample is within 5 minutes and eliminates involved sample preparation requirements resulting in a cost-effective and accurate method.
