The secret is simple. Just halve the milk fat and replace it with milk and whey protein, calcium and a little processing knowhow from Arla Foods Ingredients. In a few easy steps, you can cut the cost of expensive ingredients and give your cheese a nutritious lift. 

The really great news? The creamy taste and texture are still sublime. 

Nutritious added value 
Consumer concerns about health and the cost of living have slowed cheese purchases in major markets in Europe, Asia and the Americas over the past few years. 

Our innovative solutions turn a challenge into an opportunity by adding value and a potential nutrition claim to your premium cheese brand. 

  • Reduced fat 
  • High protein 
  • Source of calcium

Distinctly creamy 
In 50% reduced fat cream cheese, our fat-mimicking whey protein ensures the distinctive creaminess remains intact. In formulations for wrapped cheese slices, you can use our solution to replace skimmed milk cheese or make a 100% recombined version. Quality is never compromised.
