Cheese (imitation & processed)

Products made with processed and imitation cheese are becoming increasingly popular in markets such as Asia, the Middle East and Africa, where people are looking for better quality and convenience.

At Lactosan, we bring years of experience and expertise to the table, so you can develop new product ideas and flavour directions that tap directly into these growing trends.

Lactosan Cheese Powders For Imitation Cheese

Better than fresh cheese

Our Cheese Powders are perfect to enhance, substitute or mask flavours in processed and imitation cheeses. Cheese Powders offer a better solution than fresh cheeses, which often vary in maturation and availability and therefore make it difficult to maintain end-product consistency.

Cheese Powders can help you to meet flavour profiles and declaration claims, and are also easier than fresh cheese to store and manage, which helps to reduce overall costs. They also make it quick and simple to create new product types and flavours without the need to alter your existing production process.

Lactosan Cheese Powders are perfect for a broad variety of products, including cheese slices for burgers and sandwiches, cheese spreads and for imitation cheeses such as Mozzarella and Feta types.
