DairiConcepts (Springfield, Missouri) has expanded its line of flavor-amplified cheese and dairy ingredients, which are called Supernatural Concentrates, to help minimize the effects of volatile raw material costs by providing a way to replace such ingredients with flavor systems. The line extension features flavors and blends for ethnic cheeses, cream cheese, butter, cream, sour cream and yogurt, including many with kosher, halal and organic certifications.
The concentrates are made from real dairy products in a range of intensities of three to 20 times the natural flavor, and they integrate well into existing applications, including in dressings, sauces, soups, frozen entrees, fillings, dips, process cheeses and baked goods. They also work well with aseptic, retort and hot-fill processes. Supernatural Concentrates are shipped refrigerated with a storage requirement of 32–40 degrees Fahrenheit; however, if refrigeration is not possible, certain varieties are available in a powdered format.
