Lactose

At Glanbia Ingredients Ireland (GII), we’re committed to being at the forefront of dairy ingredient technology and quality. Our lactose production facility in Ballyragget is no exception, and is maintained to the highest standards. This results in a premium, edible grade lactose with a long-established reputation in the infant formula and food industries. GII lactose also has vegetarian, halal and kosher status.

Benefits and applications

Using high-quality Irish whey at our integrated processing facility, our manufacturing methods create a quality, free-flowing lactose in the form of a water-soluble crystalline powder. It has clean flavour profile and good solubility, making it ideal for use across a range of applications such as:

  • Infant nutrition
  • Nutritional formulae
  • Standardisation of dairy powders
  • Confectionery
  • Meat
  • Soups, sauces and ready meals
  • Bakery

Produced in a variety of packaging sizes to suit a wide array of client needs, our lactose powders are distributed using our highly efficient supply chain management systems, ensuring the product arrives as specified by the customer.
