Dairy applications

Overcome the challenges of traditional and plant-based dairy products

Consumers of dairy and plant-based dairy products seek more your products — from accepted, clean label ingredients to reduced-sugar options and beyond. Yet creating and launching the products with the dairy qualities your consumers want can be full of formulation and production challenges.

Only Ingredion brings you rich and detailed consumer insights and understanding to help you create the dairy and plant-based dairy products your consumers truly want. Draw on our deep technical expertise and broad portfolio of innovative ingredients to drive formulation success — and achieve goals like these:

  • Add appeal with accepted, clean label ingredients
  • Achieve just-right textures and tastes in plant-based dairy alternatives
  • Reduce sugar but not the taste in yogurts and ice creams
  • Stabilize and create the perfect mouthfeel in flavored milks
