Ice cream


Create new concepts bursting with flavour

There is a growing worldwide trend for new and exciting ice cream flavour directions, such as sweet and savoury (and sometimes purely savoury) varieties. In some Asian markets, there is also demand for cheese-based ice cream concepts, such as Cream Cheese flavour. At Lactosan, our Cheese Powders can help you to create ice creams that explode with flavour and quality.

The perfect ingredient

Lactosan’s Cheese Powder provides a wide range of new possibilities, both in pasteurized ice creams and in ready to use instant powder solutions. We can help you to create a distinctive cheese taste or our Cheese Powders can be used to boost other flavours, such as chocolate and vanilla.

Compared to fresh cheese, Cheese Powder can help to give a smoother, creamier texture and is cheaper to manage and use in your production process. It is easier to handle and store, and provides a consistent maturity so the flavour of your product never varies. 

Typically, most producers use Mascarpone, Quark, Cream Cheese, Fromage Frais or Brunost, however we can also help inspire you to combine these with other flavour components, such as Blue Cheese and Walnuts, Chocolate and naturally Smoked Cheese, and Brunost and Sea salt.
