Snow Brand R&D Reports 10(1): 41-91


Electrodialysis is an ideal process for demineralization of whey for use in infant formulae. However, production rates achievable in an electrodialysis unit are limited by the limiting current density (LCD). Factors that affect the LCD during demineralization of whey were investigated using anion-exchange membranes.
