Novozymes lactases are versatile and highly suitable for use in production of a wide range of dairy products, including lactose-free milk, cream, ice cream, flavored and functional milk drinks, butter, yogurt, and more. Additionally, Novozymes Saphera® is an innovative non-yeast lactase with benefits over traditional yeast-based lactases, including:

  • Better control of lactose elimination
  • Better sweetness control in sweetened dairy products
  • Improved suitability for fermented dairy products
  • Cleaner taste, with less off-flavors during shelf life

Calculate the potential sugar reduction in dairy products

From lifestyle trends to added regulations, dairy producers have every reason to reduce sugar in their products. But doing so — without altering a product’s taste — isn’t easy.

That’s why we made the Sweetness Calculator. This free online tool helps product developers predict how lactose hydrolysis can boost sweetness in milk drinks and yogurt, reducing the need for sweetener. Producers can then use a toolkit approach to reduce sugar and balance cost, flavor, and clean-label concerns to get the optimal result.
