Ready-made sauces, particularly for pasta, potato, rice and vegetable dishes, remain a popular choice for consumers. However, people still expect delicious flavours and quality ingredients.

Lactosan Cheese Powders can make all the difference for your sauces and can even help you to charge a premium claim by declaring real or provenance cheese on your packaging.

A broad range of advantages

Our Cheese Powders offer a unique combination of taste, functionality and convenience in sauce recipes where either dry mix, UHT or pasteurized solutions are applied. Using our low lactose Cheese Powders, you can also reduce the risk of Maillard reaction during heat treatment, while maintaining end-product stability.

When compared to fresh cheese, Lactosan’s Cheese Powders can add a superior flavour and texture, and are easier to manage during production with greater maturation stability and simpler storage requirements.  Flavour profiles can be tailored to suit local preferences by adding region-specific, mild or matured Cheese Powder varieties, and new cheese varieties can be applied more easily to the process.

We offer a broad range of Cheese Powders to choose from, including provenance, organic, vegetarian and halal. The most popular sauce types with cheese are: Mornay, Béchamel, Carbonara, Smoked Cheese and 4-Cheese varieties. 

Working with international brands

We recently helped a large international brand to expand their range of pre-made sauces using new cheese flavour profiles. A different customer replaced fresh cheese with our Cheese Powders in their dry mix sauce to improve overall flavour and to reduce production costs.

General sauce trends according to InnovaMarketInsights

  • Pressure to clean up: Global innovation continues to expand the range of sauces prepared without additives or artificial ingredients.

  • Sensory awakening: Emerging trends in sensory excitement supports sauces' traditional appeal to the senses. Spiciness becomes even more nuanced, descriptions of texture deepen beyond traditional smooth, and unusual ingredient combinations deliver unexpected flavor notes and aromas.

  • Provenance & Responsible Sourcing: The demand for clean label is being fueled by consumers' desire to know exactly what goes into their food products. Sustainability is a big part of that - geography tags front-of-pack and responsibly sourced ingredients are gaining greater shelf space.
