How to Determine Vitamin Delivery Rate for Fluid Milk Fortificaton
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition advises that milk fortified with vitamins A & D should be within an acceptable range based on an estimate of what Good Manufacturing Practices could be expected to maintain over time.

By these Federal regulations, all fluid milk products, when fortified with vitamins A & D, must be as follows:
  • 100 - 150 % of label claim or:
  • Whole milk must be fortified to 400 IU of vitamin D per quart (not to exceed 600 IU per quart).
  • Skim and low fat milk must be fortified to 400 IU of vitamin D per quart (not to exceed 600 IU per quart), and 2,000 IU of vitamin A per quart (not to exceed 3000 IU per quart)
For further information please see CFR 131.110                            

So how do we determine the correct fortification/dosage rate for your milk line?

You will need the following information:
  • Determine the concentration rate (IU/mL) or the number of quarts that each mL of vitamins will fortify. (from the manufacturer specifications assay)
  • Determine your process lines flow rate in gallons/hour
