With 70% of the world’s population unable to tolerate lactose, it’s no wonder that the trend towards healthier food (with reduced sugar and calories) has brought a growing demand for lactose-free dairy products.
DuPont Danisco lactases help you meet this demand, enabling you to produce dairy products that are lactose-free, reduced in sugar and enriched in prebiotic fiber—without compromising the texture and flavor consumers love. The company also claims that its dairy enzymes also provide advantages in UHT processing.
Demand for healthier products
Consumer expectations present dairy manufacturers with an increasingly complex challenge: producing delicious fermented dairy products that are low in sugar and high in fiber while containing a minimum of lactose. It’s a trend with roots in the growing demand for healthier products that support weight management, digestive health, and general wellbeing.
With increasing awareness of the possible adverse health impact of sugar, consumers are looking for sugar-reduced products to cut back on sugar. Fibers are known to support digestive health and boost satiety for improved weight management. Many products are now available with a low sugar or high fiber claim, but innovative options that carry both claims are barely visible on store shelves.
DuPont Danisco innovative enzyme solution Nurica is claimed to be the first to meet both needs. To know more about the product, you can register here for the upcoming webinar on 1 July 2020.
