Edlong, an independent US-headquartered dairy flavor company, has announced the expansion of its line of dairy-based natural flavors.

Leveraging decades of dairy experience and expertise, Edlong and its partner clients can now tap into a variety of authentic-tasting, high-intensity cheese and cultured profiles for use in sauces, dressings, and dips.

"This is a true collaboration between Sensory, Applications, and R&D to deliver the best of both worlds: reducing or replacing dairy commodities, without sacrificing on taste,”​ said Lourdes Mato, Edlong dairy research scientist and project lead for dairy-based natural flavors.

“By specifically focusing our flavor performance expertise on sauces, dressings and dips, we can customize profiles to achieve truly authentic flavors that AI research confirms are predicted to be preferred over real cheese."

Sourced from real dairy, the company said the line includes authentic cheese, sour cream, and buttermilk flavor profiles with multiple benefits: low usage levels and heat stable functionality, the option to reduce or replace dairy commodities for cost savings while increasing overall flavor impact, as well as potential natural labeling advantages.

The only certified woman-owned flavor house in the food manufacturing industry, Edlong offers a portfolio of dairy, dairy-based, and dairy-free flavors, applications and culinary support, regulatory compliance, and supply chain performance. The company said the portfolio improves taste profiles for cheese, butter, sweet dairy, cream, and milk, while also delivering unique functional value in the flavor and mouthfeel of sugar-reduced products.
