Procedure
1. Calculate formula based on batch size. Add nonfat dry milk and lactose to water. The quantity of water should be that required to produce an easily processed, concentrated liquid.
2. Heat solution to approximately 60°C (140°F) and mix in lecithin, fat blend and vitamin/mineral premix.
3. Continue heating to pasteurize. Homogenize in a two-stage system using pressures of 141 kgf/cm2 (2000 lb/in.2) in the first stage, and 35 kgf/cm2 (500 lb/in.2) in the second stage.
4. Spray dry and agglomerate for easier reconstitution.
5. To reconstitute, blend 10% dry formula and 90% potable water by weight. Heat to pasteurize and cool to feeding temperature.

Benefits of Using Dairy Ingredients
Lactose
Provides energy before proteins and fats can provide energy.
Generates a gradual and prolonged energy supply at a constant blood-glucose level between feedings.
Simulates the lactose level of human milk in the infant formula—human milk contains 7% lactose and milk-based formulas contain only 4.6% lactose.
Inhibits the growth of pathogenic organisms in intestine.
Nonfat Dry Milk
Contributes basic nutritional profile of milk.
Provides natural flavor compatible with infants’ needs.
