Meat & Meat Substitutes

Lactosan Cheese Powders are the perfect ingredients to enhance the quality of your meat and meat substitute products. We’ve been researching the properties of Cheese Powder to see how they can best augment or enhance flavours, improve umami and kokumi and even reduce the need for additives such as MSG. 

Taste is the #1 challenge in meat substitute products.

Let us help you to create exciting new products that meet specific flavour profiles and support your declaration requirements.

Perfect for meat or meat substitutes

As well as ensuring a delicious taste, our Cheese Powders can be used to help improve the juiciness in many product types, for example fermented and emulsified sausages, meatballs and brines for injections and tumbling.

We are working with international universities to learn how Cheese Powder can give meat substitutes a more realistic, meaty taste, and to improve the flavour of added spices. This also enables us to offer more detailed information and documentation on the qualities of Cheese Powder to help support your production and marketing needs.
