Great whey-based solutions for fat replacement in cheese

Traditional ripened cheese

The same cheese – faster and with less fat
Cheese just isn’t cheese without its distinctive taste and texture. So whether producing yellow cheese, soft ripened cheese, white cheese or pasta filata with a reduced fat content, you need to make sure their well-known characteristics stay intact.

Arla Foods Ingredients has some of the best whey-based solutions for fat replacement on the market. Through their efficient simulation of fat, our Nutrilac® ingredients are the natural choice for filling the sensory gap in reduced-fat traditional cheeses made from milk, rennet and a starter culture.

Our solutions also boost the ripening process, optimising your cheese production

Here’s what that means:

  • Nutrilac® eliminates the hard, rubbery texture and poor yield that are common defects in reduced-fat cheese.
  • In other words, your reduced-fat cheese formulation will have texture and creaminess similar to a full-fat alternative and 5-15% more yield.
  • The ripening process is typically faster, so your reduced-fat cheese is ready for sale weeks earlier than before.
