Profiles

Edlong’s knowledge of the different processes to which dairy ingredients are subjected enables us to create true-to-life milk flavors with authentic and distinctive profiles that range from toasted and nutty to fresh or earthy – including milk, sweetened condensed, milky creamy, sweet milk, and every variety in between.

  • Fresh Milk

    The taste of fresh milk is often used in beverages that require shelf-stable ingredients, such as protein and ready-to-drink applications. Our Fresh Milk profiles mask cooked notes and add fresh taste to heat-processed drinks.

  • Grass-Fed Milk

    Milk from grass-fed cows has savory, earthy and organic notes that are a perfect match for beverages and sauces. Use our Grass-Fed Milk profiles for applications that require a distinctive, farm-fresh taste.

  • Milk

    Characterized by a sweet bland flavor with the slight sharpness of lactic acid, Milk is a basic ingredient in many food applications. Edlong accurately simulates the presence of Milk in all your recipes.

  • Steamed Milk

    The frothy layer atop espresso, this blanket of milky bubbles adds a velvety texture to coffee drinks. Edlong can simulate Steamed Milk perfection for your beverage or other application.

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk

    This profile, often found in desserts and candies, conveys very sweet, rich, fatty milky notes with a hint of caramel. Get the perfect Sweetened Condensed Milk profile your application needs with Edlong.

  • Mouthfeel Builder

    When dairy commodities are reduced or eliminated, milk flavors can build back and enhance the richness and creaminess, resulting in products with the same great perception as the full commodity versions.

From sauces and dressings to bakery and snack foods, our dedicated and highly skilled team of flavorists offers extensive experience in developing milk flavors that are ideal for a wide range of applications. Edlong’s expertise in dairy flavors and their building blocks, as well as the latest in cultured flavor technologies, consumer trends, and cultural preferences, fuels our ability to support you in developing exceptional products to suit your specific needs.
