Convenience with a cleaner label
Ready meals / fine foods are often characterised by long ingredient declarations that increasingly conflict with the trend towards more natural, clean-label products.
At Arla Foods Ingredients, we have developed a series of functional milk proteins for ready meals with “back to nature” appeal.
In one simple addition, our solutions effectively perform the role of emulsifier, texturiser and stabiliser – minimising the need for additives such as modified starch and gums. Manufacturers can not only reduce the list of additives on their product labels, opportunities to cut out expensive ingredients, such as non-fat dry milk and cream, also bring significant cost savings.
There are processing benefits, too. Use our solutions to skip several steps in traditional processes, for faster, simpler ready meal production.
We have a series of concepts under development to demonstrate our capabilities. Find out more about them here:
