Milk Protein Concentrates

You’ll find consistent quality in this versatile ingredient

We own the world-wide patent in functional milk protein concentrate (MPC) manufacture and were the first to solve the cold water solubility challenges of MPCs.  And we haven’t stopped innovating since.

Our latest MPC innovation...

NZMP have created a new Milk Protein Concentrate that is an optimal source of rapidly digestible milk proteins to drive muscle synthesis.

NZMP SureProtein™ Fast Milk Protein 4868 is taking MPC from a ‘slow’ protein to a ‘fast’ protein.
