  • High protein

    Produce high-protein dairy products with excellent texture and taste!

    Valio’s experienced staff can help you with high-protein dairy foods processing

    We help you design the recipes and the processes to efficiently and accurately produce optimal composition for high-protein dairy goods. High-protein dairy goods are challenging to manufacture because of the undesirable taste of protein and graininess. We have solved this problem, and by using Valio Eila® lactose free milk powder you can produce:

    • A rich and milky taste
    • High protein content with excellent taste, texture and stability
    • Nutritionally high-quality milk proteins and minerals
    • Low carbohydrate content
    • All this in a way that’s easy to incorporate into your process
  • Reduced sugar

    With the right natural ingredients, you can reduce sugar levels without using artificial sweeteners.

    Reduce sugar levels in a way that does not compromise other important product qualities, like texture or taste

    Sugar makes flavoured dairy drinks and spoonable products taste sweet. The total sugar level in dairy products is the sum of added sugar and lactose. We help you design the recipes and the processes to reduce your products’ sugar content without compromising their taste or other properties. To do this, you can:

    • Reduce carbohydrate content by using Valio Eila® lactose free milk powder:
      • Contains fewer carbohydrates than standard skimmed milk powder
      • Same sweetness is achieved with lower level of carbohydrates as compared to standard skimmed milk powder
      • Option to use higher sucrose level while reducing total sugar level
    • For increased sweetness, use Valio Eila® sweet lactose free, a hydrolysed lactose sweetener
      • Additional sweetness with same carbohydrate content as compared to standard skimmed milk powder
