EU-28: Milk protein supply

+ Add to Favorites

This page contains a chart showing the milk protein monthly changes in the EU-28 milk deliveries, in comparison with the SMP and Cheese prices.

Protein changes, are calculated on the rolling year: for each month, the protein production is added to the production of the previous 11 months. With this method is always considered the total production in a 12-months time window, so it is possible to identify the trend without the effect of seasonality.

The chart below shows the three-year protein trend in the EU-28 milk, while the table summarizes the average monthly prices of SMP.

It is also possible to consult the monthly protein variations in milk and a summary table of the last 12 months.

The conclusive visualization allows you to follow the use of proteins in the manufactured products.

Updates are detected twice a day. Last Update: July 8th, 2020, h: 12.00

Find out the monthly EU-28 milk protein supply in the largest European milk Producers: Germany, France, Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, Ireland

EU-28: Protein content in EU milk deliveries

± Y-o-Y +180 +10 +105

ASSUMPTIONS:

% protein content of the dairy products:

BUTTER:1%
CREAM:25%
SMP:36%
WMP:26%
CONDENSED MILK:7.4%
YOGURT:4.5%
DRINKING MILK:3.5%
CHEESE AND OTHERS:Since there are different types, the protein for cheese and others is calculated by subtracting the total protein used in the production of the other dairy products from the total protein in the milk delivered.

CALCULATION METHODS:

The calculation of the milk protein is obtained by multiplying the monthly % of protein in milk (pcpropm) by the monthly milk deliveries (Deliveriespm) of each EU-28 country(p).
