Create superior sauces

Ready-made sauces, particularly for pasta, potato, rice and vegetable dishes, remain a popular choice for consumers. However, people still expect delicious flavours and quality ingredients. Lactosan Cheese Powders can make all the difference for your sauces and can even help you to charge a premium by declaring real or provenance cheese on your packaging.

A broad range of advantages

Our Cheese Powders offer a unique combination of taste, functionality and convenience in sauce recipes where either dry mix, UHT or pasteurized solutions are applied. Using our low lactose Cheese Powders, you can also reduce the risk of Maillard reaction during heat treatment, while maintaining end-product stability.

When compared to fresh cheese, Lactosan’s Cheese Powders can add a superior flavour and texture, and are easier to manage during production with greater maturation stability and simpler storage requirements.  Flavour profiles can be tailored to suit local preferences by adding region-specific, mild or matured Cheese Powder varieties, and new cheese varieties can be applied more easily to the process.

We offer a broad range of Cheese Powders to choose from, including provenance, organic, vegetarian and halal. The most popular for sauces are: Mornay, Béchamel, Carbonara, Smoked Cheese and 4-Cheese varieties.
