Formulas were designed and produced with protein contents of 10, 14 and 18 g/100 g and whey protein:casein ratios of 60:40, 40:60 and 20:80. Protein content and whey protein:casein ratio did not significantly affect the volume mean diameter (D[4,3]) of milk fat globules during processing; however, increasing protein content and decreasing whey protein:casein ratio resulted in increased viscosity during processing. The free fat content of the powders decreased with increasing protein content. Particle and bulk densities of powders with whey protein:casein ratio of 20:80 were higher than that of powders with whey protein:casein ratio of 60:40.
