Lactose is a form of sugar which is the most abundant component of milk of most mammals. Pure lactose is mainly extracted from whey and throughout the value chain process lactose is converted into lactose pharma grade and then into lactose derivative such as galactose, lactulose, lactitol, lactobionic acid, galacto-oligosaccharides (gos), lactosucrose, sialyllactose and tagatose. Lactose consists sugar, glucose and galactose which are the source of instant energy. In dairy products fat content is higher as compared to lactose. Among dairy products, dry milk and whey consist of higher lactose than cheese. Commodities from permeate power and specialty products such as lactose pharma and GOS are expected to witness increased growth compare to other lactose and derivative products.
