Textured milk proteins are basically milk protein ingredients which are manufactured by retaining the protein portion of the milk while draining off the fats and water content. The textured milk protein are of two types- whey protein concentrates and casein concentrates. Textured milk proteins are mainly applicable for improving the foaming or the frothing in the milk-based beverages and other dairy-based products such as yogurt, cheese, and cream based products. The textured milk protein is a multifunctional ingredient that has properties such as water binding, foaming, emulsification, gelling and heat stability. Textured milk proteins have a wide range of applications in the industries such as food, beverage, bakery, sports nutrition, etc., and so might have an increasing demand in the future.

Textured milk protein demand in the food industry
The consumers are becoming more conscious of their diet and lifestyle, they are now focusing on consuming healthy food products which can provide the required amount of nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, etc. This major factor might help increase the market for textured milk protein as it is nutritional rich and has an application in various industries such as food, bakery, etc.
The National Dairy Development Board estimated that world milk production was 806.70 million MT in the year 2015. The high production and availability of milk open the market for production of textured milk protein. The powder form of textured milk proteins have more shelf-life and can be easily transported which is a major advantage for the industries. The other factor that helps to expand the market for textured milk protein is the preference of consumers. The consumers are now having less preference for proteins that are derived from meat as there is the risk of disease and other side effects. The use of textured milk protein as a food ingredient can increase the protein content of the food product without adding lactose which makes it favorable for use by the lactose intolerant customer. As the lactose is absent, the food products containing textured milk protein will not have the defects such as sandiness due to crystallization of lactose, browning due to Maillard reaction, etc. This will help increase in the shelf-life of the textured milk protein containing food products. So the lactose-intolerant demo graph becomes one of the key driving factors for the textured milk protein market.
Textured milk protein isolate also can have a potential use in sports nutrition industry so as to gain the necessary amount of proteins to maintain muscle strength, increase the recovery after an intense workout, repair the tissue damage, etc. In recent times, there has been an increase in demand for on-the-go sports nutrition products, due to rise in health trends and fitness trends amongst the millennial demo graph.
