Dairy Can Be Your Success Story
Decades ago, long before plant-based food and beverages became the consumer mega-trend it is today, the flavor experts at Edlong were developing dairy-free flavor solutions that helped forward-thinking brands create and launch authentic tasting kosher-pareve products.
That head start has kept Edlong and our customers on the cutting edge of innovation in the plant-based space – and if you ask our customers, no flavor house is better equipped than Edlong to deliver authentic dairy taste for dairy-free solutions that keep your labels clean and simple, with recognizable ingredients for nearly every application need.
The foundation of our customers’ success in plant-based is the industry’s largest assortment of dairy-free and vegan flavors, coupled with our proven expertise in formulating customized dairy-free flavor solutions to suit your specific needs.
Authentic Dairy & Dairy-Free Solutions
We help brands throughout the world unlock the biggest opportunities in plant-based with dairy-free flavors that deliver indulgent creaminess and richness, mask the bitter off-notes often associated with plant proteins, and go beyond flavor to the functional benefits that influence secondary considerations like mouthfeel and stability.
Looking to accelerate the development of your dairy-free product?
Edlong’s global team of dairy flavor experts has the answers to your most pressing plant-based questions. We also know the questions you should be asking, such as:
- Can I use plant-based cultures and flavors together?
- Can you help me recreate authentic taste or match brand leaders?
- Should I add flavor at the start or end of my process?
- Will adding flavor effect the pH?
- Can I use flavor to improve mouthfeel in fat-free applications?
- My product is chalky, can flavor improve the texture?
- I want to make my product sugar-free, how can flavor help?
- My plant-based product is heavily fortified, can you mask the off-notes?
- How can I build base-notes?
- Should I add flavors before or after the fermentation cycle in my dairy-free yogurt or cream cheese?
- Can you help me deliver a fresh dairy taste versus cardboard or flat tastes that are typical?
Whether you’re looking to match a Gold Standard, mimic very specific profile notes, create your own signature authentic taste profile, replicate regional or global profiles, enhance sweetness and creaminess, or boost the impact of your overall flavor profile, our food and beverage sensory scientists, chefs, and applications experts are at the ready to work with you and deliver plant-based tastes that best suit your specific application’s needs.
