This paper, presented at a 2-day symposium on Whey Technology, held in London on 22-23 Oct. 1979, gives an economic assessment of 2 different methods (ion exchange and electrodialysis) for demineralization of whey. The operation of each system, including operating concentration, cleaning, energy costs, effluent disposal, yield and product acceptability, are described in full and some uses of demineralized dried whey are mentioned briefly.
