Cheese fillings

While demand is growing worldwide for baked products with delicious Cheese fillings, the most popular are those that can display more appealing ingredients on the label.

Lactosan’s Cheese Powders are the perfect way to ensure that your products not only have delicious, distinctive flavours, but can also support all your requirements to functionality and declaration.

Lactosan Cheese Powder Fillings

Authentic taste and functionality

Cheese fillings are typically used for biscuits, wafers, crackers, sandwich crisps, breads, muffins, pies and croissants. For each category, our Cheese Powders can significantly improve flavour and functionality for the product in its entirety. This applies both for creams that are deposited before baking (bakestable) or injected after baking. 

The naturally inherent protein in Cheese Powder can also improve your filling’s emulsifying properties and consistency.

Controlling water activity in fillings is crucial, not only for the shelf life but also to prevent the migration of water from filling to dough, or from dough to filling. With low moisture content after spray drying, Lactosan Cheese Powders are the best possible choice for your cheese filling – without compromising taste or declaration.       

Let our experts help you to choose the right Cheese Powder (or even help you to develop the entire cheese filling) for your specific needs and flavour profiles, either as a standalone ingredient or as the perfect way to enhance other flavours, such as herbs, spices, fruits and nuts.
