The magical properties of cheese powder

For 70 years since we first invented cheese powder, we’ve focussed on nothing else. Every year, we invest heavily in R&D and scientific partnerships with Europe’s leading universities to discover more of the magical properties and functionalities of cheese powder.

Achieve more with Cheese Powder

As a result of our research and the many customer projects that we have contributed to over the years, we know which of our Cheese Powders are best for emulsification, for baking stability, for intensifying flavours and masking others. We can enhance umami, kokumi, aroma and mouthfulness. Reduce your E-numbers, salt or synthetic flavour enhancer – all while maintaining taste. From crisps to confectionery, soups to spreads, and egg mayo to ice cream, we can help make your product a success. Check out our ranges by clicking on above boxes.
