Description:
METHOD FOR PRODUCTION OF A DAIRY PRODUCT AND SYSTEM FOR

COMPOSING A DAIRY PRODUCT

The present invention relates to a method for production of a dairy product. More specifically, in the method of present invention base elements of milk, such as fat, carbohydrates milk proteins are mixed with multiple predetermined mixtures comprising vitamins and trace minerals and optionally additional ingredients. Furthermore, the present invention relates to a system for composing a dairy product using the method of present invention.

There are three main processes in the industry for the production of dairy products, more specifically infant formula. These are integral spray drying, semi-integral spray drying and dry blending, of which dry blending is the most commonly used. Dry blending is an operation in infant formula manufacturing, wherein individual powdered components (amongst others an infant formula base powder) comprising the various ingredients are blended and subsequently mixed with vitamin- and minerals powdered components.

An infant formula base powder or milk product comprises of at least milk, protein, fat and carbohydrates. The production process starts with the main ingredient being milk, e.g., goat, cow, sheep, camel, yak, soy milk, a milk protein source (such as whey protein) from goat, cow, sheep, camel, yak, soy, or a (enzymatically) hydrolysed protein source, and a fat source being a vegetable fat blend, a structured lipid such as OPO, or fat from mammal milk origin or a combination thereof, and a carbohydrate source, such as, lactose, a hydrolysed starch derivate such as maltodextrin or glucose syrup, potato- or com starch, in liquid or powder state. The mixture will be first pasteurized, followed by evaporation, and subsequently spray dried to obtain for instance an infant formula base powder. These methods for production of an infant formula are well known in the art.

The difference between cow and human milk are amongst others the quantities of lactose, proteins, minerals and fat. Also the compositions and bioavailability of proteins, minerals and fat are different. In order to produce a mammalian milk (not being human milk) suitable for consumption by human infants, the protein, fat, mineral and vitamin content requires adjustments. Since there are various infant formulas available on the market, with each infant formula having their own composition that differs from one another, the amount of ingredients, fats vitamins and minerals that need to be added to the base powder during the production process may also strongly differ.

Infant formula manufacturers often have a hard time managing their inventory, more specifically managing stock keeping units, which can easily range above one hundred, up to several hundreds of recipes, leading to a complex storage management. Furthermore, enabling the development and production of all these recipes requires complex and laborious operation. For product development, each different recipe requires a full product development cycle, including recipe calculations, and all need to be checked individually against prevalent, local legislation and meet local nutritional requirements. For procurement, all different product composition demand a large array of ingredients that need to be purchased, managed and of which availability has to be secured and checked by quality control prior to production. For production it means that many different recipes/producl imply short productions runs, which makes it more difficult to have stable production runs, which leads to the challenge to obtain a product that is always within specification and compliant with (food) legislation per jurisdiction (e.g. EU, US, etc) ln addition, the use of many stock keeping units also means more frequent cleaning of the production and processing lines, resulting in more downtime.

It is an object of the present invention, amongst other objects, to address the above need in the art. The object of present invention, amongst other objects, is met by the present invention as outlined in the appended claims.

Specifically, the above object, amongst other objects, is met, according to a first aspect, by the present invention by a method for production of a dairy product, wherein the method is comprised of the steps of:

a) providing a mixture of base elements of said dairy product, wherein said base elements are milk, fat, carbohydrates, and optionally additional milk protein and water- and/or fat soluble ingredients;

b) providing a composition A comprising vitamins, a composition B comprising trace minerals, and a composition C comprising at least 5% - 35% potassium, based on the total weight of the composition C;

c) mixing of the compositions A, B and C to obtain the dairy product, wherein the amount of the vitamins and minerals in said compositions A and B, and the amount of C used in the mix depend on if said dairy product is a goat milk based product or a cow milk based product.

The present invention provides a method for the production of a dairy product, wherein the various components and their compositions of a (e.g. dry blended) dairy product, more preferably an infant formula, are calculated and prepared to match and be compatible in order to be combined optimally to deliver the desired products within specifications of the food product.

According to the invention, the dairy product is comprised of at least milk of mammalian origin (but not human), enriched with fat and carbohydrates. The milk may also be a protein source from milk. Optionally, an additional milk protein source (such as whey protein) from goat, cow, sheep, camel, yak, soy, or a (enzymatically) hydrolysed protein source can be added as base element to the mixture of step a. The fat source can be a vegetable fat and/or oil (blend) or fat from mammal milk origin or a combination thereof. The carbohydrate source can be lactose, maltodextrin, potato- or com starch.

According to another preferred embodiment, the present invention relates to the method, wherein in step c) the mixing of the compositions A, B and C is to obtain the dairy product, wherein the amount of the vitamins and minerals in said compositions A and B, and the amount of C used in the mix further depend on the type of product being manufactured. Different requirements are needed for dairy product supporting the different stages in infant development, e.g. infant formula suitable for infants of 0-6 months, follow-up formula suitable for infants of 6-12 months, and growing up milk suitable for infants of 12-36 months of age.

According to yet another preferred embodiment, the present invention relates to the method, wherein wherein in step c) the mixing of the compositions A, B and C is to obtain the dairy product, wherein the amount of the vitamins and minerals in said compositions A and B, and the amount of C used in the mix further depend on local regulatory requirements on nutritional product composition.

In the method of present invention there may be a difference in composition A, B and C when producing a dairy product based on goat/cow milk, the dairy product also may need to differ is specification/content due to the different legislation in respect to food products in for instance Europe in comparison to other parts of the world (Global - Codex). This thus means that the amount of composition A, B and C to be used for the production of a specific dairy product may differ because it needs to comply with legislation per jurisdiction.

The method of present invention drastically reduces the number of stock keeping units, i.e. using pre-mixes (or pre-blends) comprised of vitamins, trace minerals and minerals, while remaining the potential to produce a large number of different dairy products from these units. Depending on the ratio/portions of composition A, B and C, a great variety of different dairy products are obtained from only a limited number of stock keeping units. Furthermore, the method of present invention is beneficial for stability-vulnerable ingredients, such as vitamins. In addition, keeping vitamins and minerals separated as long as possible in a separate pre-mix is beneficial for product stability; and is therefore preferred over having pre-mixes wherein vitamins and minerals are combined.

The method of present invention has the advantage for the final product to shorten the time-to-market due to limitation of the variation within recipes, and less considerations regarding the use of separate ingredients. Dosing in the final product is more precise because a larger amount of the premixes are added, instead of small portions of individual ingredients and components. The method is more cost effective due to the limited number of different base powders and premix recipes. Because variation within recipes and pre-blends is limited, there will be a reduction in analytical costs in batch test and release of the finished product. It will also enable slock production of micronutrient pre-blends resulting in less stock keeping units, less storage, lower procurement costs, thereby creating more flexibility in supply chain management. The method of present invention will result in that there will be less down-time of the production facility because of cleaning of the production machines and that fewer cleaning steps can be involved.
