More detailed and more technical background information is given relating to this topic of the fifth call for proposals under the specific programme for standards, measurements and testing (SMT), 1994-1998. Milk powders subjected to different heat treatments are blended with non-milk proteins (e.g. isolates from soya, maize, wheat and pea) and analyzed using different electrophoretic and ELISA-techniques. According to preliminary results obtained by an IDF experts group, SDS-PAGE may be suitable for application as a screening method. However, it has to be verified that a sufficiently low detection limit (1%) can be obtained. 2D-gel electrophores, capillary zone electrophoresis and ELISA-techniques are to be applied in parallel. The further steps depend on the result of these preliminary experiments. If SDS-PAGE is a suitable screening method, one of the other methods or a combination of these methods has to be selected for further analysis of the samples. The following information is needed :

- 1. Identity of the non-milk protein.
- 2. Quantity of the non-milk protein.

A time scale and expected result format are also described.
