Protein powder manufacturing is complex. In the case of protein isolates like Whey, the goal is to separate the protein from the whole-food in three following steps namely Water wash, Alcohol wash, and Ionization technique. Each method has considerations such as cost and end product quality. Once the protein is separated it must be filtered. For example with whey, they use a decreasing micron filtration system that forces out the liquid but keeps the protein. According to a new market report published by BlueWeave Consulting, the Global Protein Supplement Market was valued at US$ 11,438.16 Mn in 2017 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of above 7% from 2018 to 2025, reaching US$ 20,014.21 Mn by the end of the forecast period.
