Technical Abstract: Whey proteins, modified whey proteins, and whey components are useful as nutrients or supplements for health maintenance. Extrusion modified whey proteins can easily fit into new products such as beverages, confectionery items (e.g., candies), convenience foods, desserts, baked goods, sauces, and infant foods. With texturized whey proteins, manufacturers are formulating high-protein snacks with unique textures. Improved functional property imparted by texturized whey protein isolate permitted its inclusion at 5 wt% in gummy bear candies, boosting its nutrient profile.
