Lactosan Cheese Powder Solutions are most commonly used in beverage applications to enhance or complement the taste of other flavours such as fruit, herbs and spices, or to mask off-flavours such as those found in vitamin-enriched drinks. Cheese Powders can also help to improve the taste and creaminess of dairy drinks without giving a cheese note.

However, many producers today are experimenting with new and exciting beverage ideas using cheese flavours. In Asia, for example, it is now popular to have whipped cream cheese toppings on hot teas, and in some markets rice wine is given a cheese twist, such as with added Camembert. This is to claim premium and authenticity.
