Our dairy functionalities

Protein enrichment

Whey is a high-quality protein source for dairy products with added protein. Rely on our whey proteins and expertise when maximising the protein content of yoghurts, dairy desserts, beverages and ice cream. We’ll take you to the limit while keeping texture, taste and stability firmly under control.

Protein-enriched dairy products are still a strong consumer favourite. With consumers demanding different types of product at different times of day, the proteins you add must satisfy a variety of needs.

Our whey proteins make it possible to take protein content to the limit while staying in perfect control of texture, taste and stability.

Because protein-enriched dairy products are typically low in fat and can tend towards dryness, you need proteins that maintain a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. In a high-protein beverage, you may want to ensure a refreshing texture similar to juice.

Our secret is to select whey protein fractions that tolerate variations in temperature and pH – the two parameters most critical to final product quality. So, whether you’re producing yoghurts, dairy desserts, beverages or ice cream, you can meet consumer demands for appealing, protein-enriched products at breakfast, lunch and throughout the day.

With the right formulation of our proteins, you can add an EU-approved ‘source of protein’ or ‘high protein’ claim to:

  • Smooth and creamy yoghurt, quark or skyr
  • Refreshing dairy beverages with a stable shelf life
  • Indulgent ice cream and frozen desserts
  • Dairy sports nutrition products where whey is the preferred protein source
