Save money in dairy

Balancing the need for affordability alongside ensuring your products retain quality and product differentiation is a challenge. In dairy applications especially, it can be difficult to keep costs to a minimum while delivering the rich, creamy, indulgent textures consumers demand.

Ingredion can help you tackle the specific challenges you face when it comes to saving money. Whether it be maintaining texture while reducing fat and protein, replacing ingredients without changing processes or delivering a consumer-preferred eating experience while improving your margins. Discover some simple substitutions that can help you reduce formulation costs without compromising on the quality of your consumers’ favourite products.

Make your dairy products more affordable and reduce your recipe costs in:

  • Yoghurt and fermented dairy drinks: Replace dairy protein, pectin and fat without compromising on the smooth, creamy textures your consumers love
  • Puddings and dairy desserts: Cut costs but keep the indulgence by replacing dairy solids and fats with fat mimetics
  • Dairy alternatives: Remove all dairy from your products while better imitating traditional dairy taste and texture
