Milk is primarily composed of protein, fat, lactose, water, minerals, and vitamins. The ultra-filtration process for milk removes most of the fluid components, leaving a high concentration of milk protein that allows cheese and other manufacturers to produce their products more efficiently. Ultra-filtered milk (UFM) is also a common ingredient in high-protein sports drinks, energy bars, and nutrition supplements. This report provides information on: (1) trends in UFM imports, including fed. trade restrictions on these imports; (2) the use of domestically produced UFM in U.S. cheese making; and (3) the FDA¿s and the states¿ efforts to enforce FDA standards of identity regulations, esp. the use of UFM in cheese production. Charts and tables.
