IDF (International Dairy Federation) and ISO have joined forces to expand the scope of an international standard used worldwide in the dairy industry to measure the protein content of cow milk. The Kjeldahl method now incorporates bovine milk with reduced fat content, goat whole milk, sheep whole milk, cheese, dried milk and related products including milk-based infant formulae, milk protein concentrate, whey protein concentrate, casein and caseinate.
The revised standard ISO 8968-1:2014 (IDF 20-1:2014) confirms the crucial role of the Kjeldahl method in trade harmonization and enhances consumer protection safeguards.
The Kjeldahl method plays a primary role in national and international trade, e.g. in calculating fair milk payments for dairy farmers, controlling manufacturing processes and in checking regulatory compliance.
