ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL [July 15, 2016]—In response to consumer demand for simple labels, authentic profiles and premium foods, Edlong Dairy Technologies will be introducing Edlong® Simply Dairy ingredients at the Institute of Food Technologists IFT Food Expo in Chicago, July 16-19. These concentrated dairy ingredients naturally intensify cheese or butter notes, and deliver impactful dairy essences.
Edlong® Simply Dairy ingredients are made from real dairy, and increase richness, creaminess, cheesiness and buttery taste. Unlike flavors, they are listed as their source ingredients on product labels.
“As the leading supplier of dairy flavors, we are adding a new tool to the product developer’s dairy tool kit,” says Laura Parker, Edlong Director of Marketing. “We talk to our customers every day about using dairy flavors as part of their product development tool kit. Edlong® Simply Dairy ingredients give them another option, and expand their ability to create products consumers crave,” she adds.
Initial profiles include butters, cheddars, Italian styles and butter cream profiles, with additional profiles in development. They can be used in a variety of applications including baked goods, cheeses, crackers, dips, desserts, dressings, salty snacks, sauces, soups and more.
