Fat, Sugar, and Salt Reduction

Fat, Sugar, and Salt Reduction

Reducing the fat, sugar, and/or salt of your dairy, dairy-free, and plant-based applications requires specialized flavor expertise and resources. At Edlong, we use over a century of experience exclusively focused on the taste of dairy and a cultivated library of hundreds of dairy flavors that can be applied in thousands of combinations to offer the perfect solutions for your unique application development challenges, including offering the fat, sugar, and salt reduction your consumers want while delivering the authentic taste they demand.

Consumer demand for healthier products has never been more intense. From paleo, keto, and flexitarian to vegan and vegetarian, consumers are making specific lifestyle choices. While taste considerations continue to be their strongest purchasing influence, consumers are also paying close attention to the labels of the food and beverages they buy.

Our healthy reduction expertise takes all flavor considerations into account. We know if your product has reduced fat, sugar, or salt, there may be other inherent challenges to address. Our mouthfeel solutions add richness to products that have reduced-fat or sugar and help increase longevity of taste in the mouth in a way that’s similar to fat. Our savory solutions can help increase salty perception in reduced-sodium applications, and our sweet solutions can help improve sweetness perception in a variety of applications while improving mouthfeel in sugar-reduced products. This Vegan Cardamom Cold Brew Latte is just one example of how we reduce fat, sugar, or salt while improving mouthfeel, enhancing sweetness, imparting creaminess, and masking bitter off-notes.
