ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, USA [26 September 2018]—Edlong showcased some of its latest dairy and dairy-free innovations as an exhibitor at the Food Technology Summit & Expo México on September 26 and 27.
“The Mexican economy relies on importing dairy products that provide authentic taste, reasonable price and convenience,” said Edlong Chief Commercial Officer Beth Warren. “By staying up to date on trends, new ingredients, changing technologies and of course, optimizing our flavors, we are in a strong position to serve this market.”
As part of its exhibit, Edlong offered three tastings:
- A Chicago-style popcorn mix featuring sweet caramel and vanilla flavors with cheddar cheese flavor. This savory and indulgent snack allowed for a significant reduction of commodity cheese.
- A vegan dessert based on Speculoos, a spiced shortbread cookie that is popular in Belgium, Holland and Germany. This on-trend, indulgent European flavor profile was presented in both a dairy-free cookie stick and soft ice cream, illustrating the versatility and functionality of the flavors that remain stable both when baking and freezing.
- A vegan Oaxaca cheese that provided authentic taste and texture without any commodity cheese. With heat resistant flavors and masking technology, the company created a plant-based cheese without the rubbery or bland characteristics often found in vegan cheeses.
The Food Technology Summit & Expo México is Latin America’s leading food and beverage industry event with a global scope and draws more than 14,000 visitors.
