Make the most of new trends in milk

Lactose-intolerant and health-conscious consumers are making low-lactose one of the fastest growing dairy categories, even surpassing some plant-based alternatives in some markets. Is your brand geared to reap the benefits?

 

Consumers are more focused on what they eat and the nutritional benefits they get from foods. But the trends are fragmented. Some want low-fat, others want high. Some want less sugar, others look for more fiber. 

This fragmentation in consumer trends means that you continuously have to innovate new dairy concepts for dairy-hungry consumers.

With our lactases, you can seamlessly tap into popular health trends while still delivering the tastes that consumers demand.

Calculate your savings and hit the sweet spot

Calculate your savings and hit the sweet spot

Sweet dairy beverages like chocolate or strawberry milk are designed to hit the sweet spot.  

But while consumers desire a sip of your delicious beverage, they’re also looking to cut down on their sugar intake. 

With Saphera®, you can reduce your added sugar content in flavored milk by up to 30% by breaking down lactose into glucose and galactose which increases perceived sweetness.

    Relative sweetness

    Sugar comes in many forms — a refined ingredient like table sugar, a natural component of milk like lactose, or the natural building blocks of these sugars such as glucose, fructose and galactose. Each type of sugar brings different relative sweetness, and that's one reason why different foods taste more or less sweet to us.  

    For food and beverage producers, taking sweetness into account is especially important when reformulating products. Lactose, for instance, is not particularly sweet on its own. But, when broken down with the lactase Saphera into glucose and galactose, the resulting sugars become almost 50% sweeter.

    Relative sweetness of different sugars in relation to sucrose

    • Lactose 39
    • Sucrose 100
    • D-Galactose 63
    • Glucose 69

 

 

One solution, two new health claims

With Saphera® Fiber, you can reduce natural milk sugar and increase the fiber content in flavored milk at the same time. The beauty of the enzyme is that it does all of this without adding anything that wasn’t there in the first place.  

Coming from a unique Bifido-strain, Saphera® Fiber is not only versatile to work with, it also provides a pure, clean taste.  

By creating more dietary fiber from natural sugar, you can make new claims for health-conscious consumers without affecting your brand’s label.
