Plant Based Dairy Fats
Expert Support Creating Cost Effective Dairy Taste and Textures

With the growing trend for healthier food, more and more consumers are looking for lower trans-fat options, dairy-free alternatives and lower saturated fat. But they still want eating experiences that are as close as possible to traditional dairy products. In this ever-changing market, you not only need to respond fast to stay competitive, you also have to control costs. Our experts understand these challenges and help you choose the right dairy fat alternative to meet consumer requirements in terms of taste, texture, mouthfeel and price.

Creating Together

As well as the focus on health, manufacturers and consumers are increasingly concerned about food quality and sustainability. That’s why they want clear labeling about the nature and origins of their food. With our experience and expertise in plant based oils, we help you meet these requirements. In partnership with you, we turn your ideas into cost-effective products, with improved processing, long shelf life, attractive appearance and excellent eating properties.

When you partner with us,  our technical expertise combines with your unique market knowledge to create irresistible products with great taste, texture and long shelf life. Whether you make ice cream, desserts, toppings, coffee creamers or plant-based cheeses, our broad portfolio of soft-seed and tropical oils such as sunflower, canola, soybean, palm, palm kernel, shea and coconut oils are used to tailor products to your needs. We provide products, which are naturally lower in trans and saturated fatty acids when compared  to dairy fat, maintaining their stability during production and storage, preserving the desired taste and appearance of your products.

Plant-Based Cheeses

Whether you’re making a soft and spreadable, smooth melting, or hard and crumbly cheese, we can help. We have a range of oils, shortenings, and lecithins to help you meet a wide range of sensory needs—i.e. creamy mouthfeel, dense textures, and more. We offer both soft-seed and tropical oils to help meet your application needs, including canola, sunflower, soybean, palm, coconut, and shea.

Ice Cream

For ice cream, our vegetable fat products offer several advantages over dairy fat. These include good melting behavior for clean mouthfeel and fast crystallization for reduced processing time. With tailor-made solutions, we supply cost-effective products with the required nutritional profile, delivering better value compared to dairy fat.

Margarines & Buttery Spreads

Whether you’re making buttery toast, sautéed vegetables, or sweet banana bread, we can help. Provide the delicious taste of butter with plants.  Made from plant-based ingredients, our buttery spreads are a great dairy-free option. They taste like dairy butter and are excellent for buttering, cooking, and baking.
