New protein concept addresses growing demand for ‘recombined’ cheese

Arla_Foods_IngredientsArla Foods Ingredients has developed a range of next-generation ‘recombining’ solutions that will enable dairy companies to produce high quality speciality cheeses without fresh milk.

 

The solutions offer dairy companies the opportunity to create recombined white, processed and cream cheeses based on Nutrilac® functional milk proteins, water and fat – usually butterfat or anhydrous milk fat (AMF). They work on existing recombining machinery and generate no whey side-stream, maximising output and reducing waste.

 

Recombined dairy products are particularly common in parts of the world where there is limited or no access to fresh milk. This is often the case in regions such as Latin America, Africa, South East Asia, China and Russia. Recombined liquid milk and simple yoghurts made from rehydrated milk powder are already widely manufactured. However, recombined speciality cheeses have traditionally proved more complex and challenging to produce.

 

Claus Andersen, Category Manager at Arla Foods Ingredients, said: “Shoppers in emerging markets are now seeking out more sophisticated dairy products, such as speciality cheeses, bringing their tastes more into line with western consumers. To meet this demand without access to fresh milk is not an easy job. But the Nutrilac® recombined cheese concept means it’s possible to produce the high quality and nourishing speciality cheeses that consumers in these markets want – cheeses that are as good as if they were made with fresh milk.”

 

Recombined dairy products are also expected to increase in importance in the European Union when milk quotas are abolished on 1 April 2015. Claus Andersen explained: “After the abolition of quotas there will be no restrictions on how much milk member states can produce, which almost certainly means there will be a significant fresh milk surplus. Much of this surplus will be converted into dairy ingredients, some of which will be sold into markets outside of Europe where it will be used to produce recombined dairy products. Our Nutrilac® recombined cheese concept will be a perfect fit in this new commercial landscape.”

 

The Nutrilac® recombined cheese concept offers more than 20 flexible solutions with variable cost-in-use, capable of producing cheeses of different quality tiers. “Depending on the market in question and the spending power of the consumers living there, we can create recombined cheeses with three different quality profiles: good, better and best,” explained Claus. “This means our concept offers versatile solutions that can be applied in all types of markets globally.”

 

Arla Foods Ingredients has 25 years’ experience in recombined dairy products and also offers Nutrilac® functional milk protein solutions for recombined ice cream and stirred, set and drinking yoghurts. Claus said: “Overall, as a result of increasing affluence in emerging markets, demand for cheese alone is expected to rise by up to 25% in the next 10 years, compared with 2012 levels, according to figures from the International Dairy Federation. Nevertheless, access to fresh milk in these countries will remain difficult so the importance of recombined dairy products will continue to grow. We have a wide range of Nutrilac® solutions to help dairy companies produce excellent recombined products cost-effectively, ensuring they can always stay one step ahead of their competitors.”
