Arla Foods Ingredients has launched a new organic functional solution for cooking-stable cheese products.

The solution is part of a new line the company said helps manufacturers meet the growing demand for healthy, natural and organic products.

According to Innova Market Insights, organic cheese launches are growing at a CAGR of 15.1% in Europe, and a Lindbergh International study showed 73% of European consumers would buy more organic dairy products if they were more widely available.

Meanwhile, cooking-stable cheese products – such as grilling cheeses and cheese fries – are increasingly prevalent. Arla Foods ingredients said the products are a protein-rich substitute for meat, and have created new possibilities to cater for the growing number of vegetarian and flexitarian consumers.

Arla Foods Ingredients is now adding an organic line to its Nutrilac range of functional protein solutions, which offer multiple functionalities in dairy, including improved taste, texture, creaminess and stability.

The line includes Nutrilac FO-7922 Organic – a new product for cooking-stable cheese products. The company said it is suitable for grilling cheeses, cheese patties for burgers, cheese sticks, cheese nuggets and cheeses for hot pot soup, and it can also be used to create recombined dairy products.

As well as being organic, Nutrilac FO-7922 Organic is heat-stable in processing, allows flexible levels of sodium content and has a pleasant taste. Other advantages include 100% yield.

Claus Bukbjerg Andersen, senior category manager at Arla Foods Ingredients, said, “Contemporary ways of cooking and eating cheese are increasingly varied, and there’s demand for cooking-stable products in a variety of forms.

“At the same time, ethical purchasing drivers are increasingly important and the demand for organic products is huge. Our new solution meets all of these current market needs. It combines functional benefits with a natural, wholesome, organic positioning that boosts consumer appeal.”
