Consumers are increasingly demanding food products that provide healthier nutritional benefits, topping that list are foods with reduced sugar. According to DuPont, the “free from,” dairy alternatives market is expected by 2023 to reach $29.6B globally, up from $17.3B in 2018.
Now there is another option for food manufacturers to approach this consumer preference. Developed for dairy manufacturers looking to produce fermented Dairy Products with low sugar, and high fiber, DuPont Nutrition and Biosciences has recently introduced Nurica™ All-In-One Enzyme Solution.
According to the DuPont website, “Nurica™ is a lactase with a difference. Just like a standard lactase, it minimizes the lactose content in milk by splitting it into its two component parts: glucose and galactose. But that’s where the similarity ends as the galactose molecule is then transformed in situ from simple sugar into galactooligosaccharide (GOS) – a prebiotic dietary fiber.”
“With Nurica™, dairy manufacturers can reduce the sugar content of plain yogurt, for example, by at least 35% and, at the same time, obtain a final product with more than 2% natural fiber. Nurica™ has no impact on the fermentation process, taste or texture. So consumers can simply enjoy a delicious fermented dairy treat with all the nutritional benefits they desire.”
Key benefits include:
- Meet demand for healthier dairy products with less sugar
- Maintain natural image and sensory appeal
- Improved cost-in-use
- Enhance acidification time while maintain product sensor properties
