ST. LOUIS — In response to rising dairy prices, Solae has introduced two new dairy ingredient alternatives, Supro Plus 9000 and Supro Plus 9040.
"Like Solae’s other dairy alternative products, Supro Plus 9000 and 9040 offer cost-saving opportunities, versatility in application and user friendliness," said Will Black, senior director of global strategy for Solae. "These healthy and affordable products are excellent dairy ingredient alternatives for beverages, nutrition bars, beverage mixes, bakery mixes and dairy-type systems. With the current volatile market conditions surrounding dairy pricing and availability, Supro Plus 9000 and 9040 offer opportunities for food manufacturers to improve product margins without sacrificing product quality or nutrition."
Supro Plus 9000 is intended to be an economic alternative to nonfat dry milk, and Supro Plus 9040 is intended to be an alternative to whole milk powder. Both have a similar protein, fat, carbohydrate and calcium makeup as the milk proteins they are intended to replace and are equivalent to milk protein in nutritional quality.
The products expand on a line of solutions Solae offers food manufacturers to help control formulation costs and improve profitability.
"In many applications, we can replace all or a portion of the dairy proteins used, maintaining traditional taste, texture and nutrition while delivering significant cost savings," Mr. Black said.
