Thanks to consumers’ fast-paced lifestyles and an increase in health awareness, the drinkable snack market is booming. So are sales of plant-based products. One product that tops both lists is drinking yogurts. Portable and packed with protein, drinking yogurts appeal to children and adults alike. The idea of drinking yogurts with a long shelf life also continues to grow worldwide as consumers love the added convenience factor.

However, formulators know that creating and fortifying a drinking yogurt alternative with plant-based protein can be a challenge. There can be issues with sedimentation, protein stability and creaming that affect your product’s shelf life. Whether you are using coconut, oat, almond or a blend of plant protein sources, CP Kelco can help you achieve mouthfeel, taste and texture you desire. Discover our tested and proven portfolio of sustainably sourced and nature-based solutions that can help you overcome challenges and meet your clean label goals.

In today’s protein-centric marketplace, dairy plays a leading role. Consumers are looking to support their busy, active lifestyles and wellbeing with dairy products that offer convenience and a clean label. Fortification with extra vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein can make a healthy product even healthier. Fun inclusions and new flavors can broaden your appeal and help you reach a whole new generation. You need a trusted partner who understands application challenges, offers clean label-friendly solutions, and can help you get to market quickly. Because of CP Kelco’s global reach, we have gained many years of expertise working with our customers across the regions we serve. We have tailored strategies for achieving the creamy, indulgent taste and mouthfeel discerning consumers expect. Our team of experts can help you optimize the functions and sensory appeal of your new dairy formulations.

Milk is great on its own, but adding flavors like strawberry, chocolate, vanilla or banana make it extra special! As a treat or part of a balanced diet, flavored milk is a worldwide favorite beverage.  

We have years of experience formulating with milk and its unique challenges. We also have extensive knowledge on adding flavors and preparing products for different shelf life levels as well as a variety of packaging options. Our technical experts use our product portfolio to address stabilization, pourability, viscosity, suspension, and texture preferences that work with both dairy and flavors.  

When it comes to adding nutrients, sugar reduction and even fat reduction, our nature-based ingredients can bring back mouthfeel, protect protein, suspend nutrients while stabilizing for a great flavored milk from the first to last sip.  

Want to make the perfect chocolate milk? We’re the ones to ask.  

As consumers embrace alternative proteins into their daily diet, the demand for variety is driving the dairy milk substitute market. From vegans and vegetarians to those with dairy allergies and intolerances, to the curious flexitarians, more of us are seeking nature-based ways to take in protein and nutrients.

Formulators are also becoming more creative with protein sources and blends.

However, they must contend with a variety of issues when working with various grains, nuts or other plant sources. Grinding the nuts or grains into a fine powder can leave some residual solids that can settle to the bottom of the container.

Adding fortification ingredients like calcium to improve nutritional content can also present a settling issue and, therefore not deliver what is promised on the label. Beverages made from coconut have fats that may separate and rise to the top of the container. Others are very thin and need additional body and creaminess to create the right mouthfeel that consumers desire in dairy alternative beverages.

Whatever your challenge, CP Kelco has the nature-based ingredient to complement your formulation and help solve issues of stability, suspension, viscosity, body and mouthfeel.

Whether it’s suspending botanicals in the latest new-age energy drink, stabilizing protein in fruit smoothies, creating an indulgent creamy liqueur or recovering body in a reduced calorie beverage, the possibilities of stabilizers and texturizers are truly amazing.

At CP Kelco, innovation is key. Using groundbreaking methods like microbial fermentation, extraction from land and sea plants, and modification of cellulose-based raw materials, we’re changing the way polysaccharides are produced. And we’ve created quite a portfolio. CPKelco’s vast assortment of ingredients can take the most challenging – and creative – beverage prototypes from the lab to the shopping cart.

But for all the time we spend inside the lab, our ingredients are quite comfortable in the great outdoors. Which makes sense, since each product is derived from nature-based, renewable raw materials with minimal modification. Thanks to rheology control, these products can be used for thickening, suspension, stabilization and even gelation.

Rheology control has become a popular topic among developers. The amount of commercially available modifiers can be overwhelming, to say the least. So which rheology modifier is the right one for your product? A few factors should be considered, like the desired flow behavior or texture, the required shelf-life, the production equipment available, compatibility with other ingredients, and product end-use characteristics. It may seem intimidating, but don’t worry. That’s what we’re here for.

Based on evolving consumer preferences to get nutrition from novel sources, try new flavors and reduce sugar, juices and juice-based drinks have shifted in positioning over the years. Whether it’s a staple in a diet or a treat, there are many fun ways to work with juice and juice drinks!

For beverage formulator, incorporating vitamins, minerals and other nutrients presents both challenges and opportunities to create innovative solutions.

Our nature-based ingredients are ideal for reducing or eliminating sugar without losing mouthfeel or taste. Our experts have worked with juice and juice drinks all over the world and can find a solution for your innovative beverage.

We offer a wide range of nature-based, renewable raw and clean-label ingredients to meet multiple product functions such as thickening, suspension and stabilization.
