Milk protein concentrates (MPCs) were manufactured from skim milk at pilot scale by ultrafiltration, or ultrafiltration and diafiltration, to different protein concentration factors. MPCs were then spray-dried into seven powders ranging from 36.6% (w/w; MPC35) to 89.6% (w/w; MPC90) protein in dry matter. Powders were reconstituted to 3.5% (w/w) protein and the heat stability of MPC suspensions measured at 140 degrees C in the pH range 6.3-7.3. At pH < 6.8, the heat stability of MPC suspensions decreased with increasing protein content of the MPC powders, due to high Ca-ion activity. At pH > 6.8, the destabilising influence of increased Ca-ion activity with increasing protein content of the MPC powders was countered partially by reduced heat-induced kappa-casein dissociation. The heat stability of MPC80 was restored by re-establishment of the serum composition of skim milk; fortification with lactose or urea only affected heat stability outside the pH region where rapid Ca-induced coagulation occurred.
