  • Patent number: 5639502
    Abstract: A sterilized milk composition is based upon the natural constituents of milk and has reduced phosphorous, sodium, potassium and citrate contents. The composition is derived, in particular, from skimmed milk and has a non-fat dry matter solids content which includes, by weight based upon the weight of the non-fat solids, from 33% and 36% protein, 48% to 58% lactose and 3% to 5% minerals, and the minerals include a calcium content in an amount of from 75% to 100% of that of the skimmed milk, a phosphorous content in an amount of from 50% to 75% of that of the skimmed milk, a sodium content in an amount of from 5% to 20% of that of the skimmed milk, a potassium content in an amount of from 5% to 20% of that of the skimmed milk and a citrate content in an amount of from 10% to 30% of that of the skimmed milk.
