Powdered milk product is carry out based on an FSSC22000 management system with all processes being strictly managed through a system which incorporates the HACCP* hygiene management procedures. In addition, rigorous inspections are carried out at 3 stages during production: inspection of raw materials, inspection of intermediate products before filling in cans, and inspection of final products before shipping.
Example: <Final product inspection>
(1) Check for 6 types of microorganism including coliform bacterium
(2) Sensory inspection
(3) Solubility check, foreign matter check
(4) Individual inspections by product group (ingredients, etc.)
(5) Measurement of radioactive material
Only products which have passed all of these inspections are shipped.
1. Mix liquid blending
The various raw materials which will become the base for the powdered milk are mixed together.
2. Sterilization and concentration
The mix liquid is heated to sterilize it, and then water content is evaporated to bring it to a specific concentration.
Impurities are removed by passing the mix liquid through specialized filters.
4. Spray drying
The mix liquid is sprayed suspended in air using specialized machinery to rapidly cool and dry it into a powder.
The powdered milk is filled into cans.
6. Nitrogen gas replacement
When the powdered milk is added to the cans, the air in the cans is suctioned out and replaced with nitrogen gas to prevent the powdered milk from oxidizing and deteriorating in quality.
7. Sealing and marking
The product is completely sealed in the cans, and the production date and other information is printed on the bottoms of the cans.
