Butter Buds® Showcases Latest Dairy, Non-Dairy, Organic and Clean Label Ingredient Innovations During IFT20

Jul 13, 2020

Racine, WI – Butter Buds® Inc., a global leader in dairy and non-dairy concentrates, is showcasing the latest on-trend, better-for-you flavor ingredients this week during the 2020 Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting and Food Expo (IFT20) virtual event. Attendees can discover new solutions made possible with Butter Buds plant-based dairy-alternative ingredients. Other non-dairy, certified organic and clean-label ingredients will also be on show.

Today’s consumers are embracing plant-based dairy alternatives more than ever before. Yet manufacturers still face challenges in creating products that are just as good as the real thing. The IFT20 virtual event is sure to see attendees in need of a partner who understands how to recreate dairy’s unique properties.

“We look forward to meeting with IFT20 attendees and discussing the formulation challenges they may be struggling with when it comes to dairy-alternative products,” said John Buhler, President of Butter Buds. “Our R&D professionals have the dairy expertise and understanding of flavor ingredients to help manufacturers avoid common pitfalls that arise with these new plant-based products. We can help them deliver a familiar flavor, texture and mouthfeel.”

In addition to dairy-alternative ingredients, Butter Buds offers dairy-based innovations to help formulators develop winning plant-based proteins. These ingredients help mask off-notes, as well as support richness and mouthfeel that can be lost in low-fat flavor systems.
