Quality / EQI
Heat treatment of milk during processing denatures bioactive milk proteins, and may significantly reduce their bioactivity and functionality.
Finished products are marketed with low levels of bioactive protein per dose, or are based on cheaper manufacturing methods (e.g., spray-dried) that result in little bioactivity.
Currently there is no effective way for consumers to differentiate between milk proteins that are “bioactive” and can support positive health outcomes, with those that have been denatured by heat with limited functionality and support for health.
EQI – Effective Quality Index
An index based on a standardised bioactivity testing protocol. EQI assesses the quality and quantity of bioactive milk proteins in finished products – verifying their ability to support positive health outcomes.
