Molkosan® is a unique A. Vogel
product. It is a fresh whey concentrate prepared according to a special lactofermentation
process: Molkosan® is derived from whey, the bluish liquid oozing from
curdling milk when proteins agglomerate to make cheese. Lactic ferments, added to the
whey, transform lactose into lactic acid. Once fermentation is completed, additional L(+)
lactic acid is added and the remaining proteins are removed. This liquid is then vacuum
concentrated and pasteurized.
Actions and pharmacology
Molkosan® is very rich in
minerals (calcium, potassium, phosphorus, etc.) and has an acid pH. It contains lactic

Precautions, contraindications and interactions
As Molkosan® does not contain proteins, it
should not be allergenic. Molkosan® contains a very low proportion of lactose

this reason, Molkosan® should not cause GI problems in people with lactose
intolerance. However, people allergic to dairy products or with lactose intolerance should
use Molkosan® with caution.
