Hot Tomato Soup with Goya Cheese Powder

The benefit of combining cheese powder and vegetables

What do tomatoes 🍅 & cheese 🧀 have in common?

⭐ They both contain high levels of the umami provider glutamic acid and as the tomato ripens and the cheese matures these levels increase.


Great Taste Beyond Compare
Some like tomatoes red, some like them green – we like them with cheese powder! And together they make a fantastic combo packing a meal or a snack with great taste and mouthfullness.

🍅+🧀= umami, taste enhancement and mouthfullness

Our cheese powders are based on high quality cheeses to ensure great tasting products – for both sweet and savoury applications.

⭐ And there is an extra benefit of using our cheese powders: a layer of kokumi. The unique characteristics of umami and kokumi can be useful in vegetable dishes to enhance a tasty profile, mask unwanted off-flavours or reduce salt to get a cleaner labelling.

Which cheese flavour is the most popular in vegetable dishes?
According to Innova Market Insights Cheddar Cheese is among the top 5 flavours used in new product launches in the fruit and vegetable category between October 2021-Mar 2022.
