Reducing sugar in dairy foods manufacturing

Sugar makes flavoured dairy drinks and spoonable products taste sweet. However, market demand is for low-sugar alternatives without using artificial sweeteners. Valio has developed solutions for sugar reduction: With Valio ingredients and process knowhow, dairy food processors can reduce sugar levels naturally.

Reduce sugar levels without artificial sweeteners

The total sugar level in dairy products is the sum of added sugar and lactose. Valio’s solution for dairy processing reduces sugar levels in a way that does not compromise other important product qualities, like texture or taste. Valio’s professionals help dairy processors design the recipes and the processes to reduce dairy products’ sugar content without compromising taste or other properties.

Below are some of the benefits of using Valio’s sugar reduction methods in dairy processing:

  • Reduce carbohydrate content by using Valio Eila® PRO 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
    • Additional sweetness with same carbohydrate content as compared to standard skimmed milk powder
