In February 2020, Lactalis Ingredients showcased Lactimilk, an affordable fortified fat filled-milk powder with 24% protein and 28% fat at the Gulf Food Festival in UAE. The product is enriched with vitamins A & D to meet nutritional needs and has been specifically developed for yogurt applications and beverages. The company mainly showcased the product as a response to the growing demand for healthy, better-for-you cost-effective dairy products across the globe. The growth of the global market for fat-filled milk powder is primarily driven by the rising demand for an affordable alternative to whole milk powder. Fat-filled milk powders have extensive applications in the manufacturing of the range of dairy products.

Blending the high quality skimmed milk powder with vegetable fat yields fat-filled milk powder. The powder is spray-dried in order to easily reconstitute the product. The resulting powder has the same physical, chemical and organoleptic properties as a whole milk powder. It helps reducing formulation costs for a product without any impact on its quality. In most cases, the vegetable fats used are palm oil, coconut oil or copra oil, in quantities varying from 26-28%. Low protein fat-filled milk powders are generally used for the reconstitution of milk in dairy beverages while high protein fat-filled milk powders are used for yogurt, curd, and cheese production. The growing popularity of healthier dairy products is driving the demand for vitamins and minerals fortified fat-filled milk powders.

In the view of the recent trend toward cost-effective fat-filled milk powder and milk powders offer an excellent alternative to full cream milk powder. Fat-filled milk powders substitute whole milk powder with similar organoleptic properties without adding an extra cost. They are manufactured using vegetable oils making them a functional alternative to whole milk powders. The growing demand for cost-competitive milk powder alternatives among the commercial-scale dairy products manufacturers is primarily driving the growth of the market. These powders are extensively utilized for the manufacturing of curd and yogurt. The increasing awareness of gut health among consumers in turn increases the demand for probiotic dairy products, which drives the growth of the market.

Continuously rising demand for dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, curd, and dairy whiteners in the region is expected to contribute to the growth of the market.

According to The Agriculture and Horticulture Department Board (AHDB), UK, Europe is one of the key producer fat-filled milk powder in the world. Europe is anticipated to witness promising growth attributed to the increasing export of fat-filled milk powder to other regions. The emerging trend of better-for-you dairy products is fuelling the demand for fortified fat-filled milk powders in the region. The manufacturers are expanding their product portfolio with fat-filled milk powders to capitalize on the growing demand in the region. For example, in March 2018, Ornua Ltd. launched new instant fat-filled milk powder, Forto in Ireland.

Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit substantial growth owing to the strong demand for a low-cost alternative for whole milk powder. The booming food and beverage industry in the region is responsible for the growth of the market.
