“Despite the rise in demand for dairy alternatives and plant-based dairy substitutes, real dairy ingredients continue to be popular with many consumers,” said Michael Ivey, national sales director.
“Real dairy has remained successful due to its flavor, versatility and the opportunities it offers for clean label and organic applications. At Butter Buds, our real dairy products are ideal solutions to help manufacturers achieve excellent flavor and functionality. They are also easy to incorporate into formulations and offer great cost optimization, since they are used at low usage rates. We can also work with customers’ existing products, to determine the best ingredient solution and dosage level, to save time and costs in formulations.
“Our real dairy solutions can provide unique flavor profiles and functionality made possible by leveraging the real dairy attributes, such as rich flavor and mouthfeel. We can also help formulators create lower-fat applications that retain the flavor and great taste of their full-fat counterparts when incorporating our dairy flavor concentrates.”
