Summary Whey has primarily been considered a waste by the dairy industry. However, strict environmental regulations prevented disposal of untreated liquid whey. Production of whey powders were among the most popular conversions of liquid whey. The recent advances in the processing techniques are aimed at producing a variety of milk powders consisting of excellent physical and functional properties which are preserved during storage. However, the powder structure is strongly affected by the composition of the liquid feed and the processing conditions. For instance, powders produced by roller drying has a compact structure with less occluded air, while spray dried powder particles are spherical containing occluded air, either as a large central vacuole or smaller vacuoles distributed through the interior of the particles. Another instance, high inlet temperature of the spray drier results in a more wrinkled surface, while the presence of high concentrations of proteins in the liquid feed results in a smooth surface. The present chapter focuses on different whey waste stream powders, processing methods and their microstructure as affected by the processing and compositional changes.
