Capturing the indulgence of rich, creamy, and sweet authentic dairy taste in your dairy and dairy-free applications requires a depth of specialized flavor expertise and resources that lead to the innovative indulgence flavor solutions. At Edlong, our 100+ years of exclusive focus on the taste of dairy has produced a library of hundreds of plant-based dairy-free flavors applied in thousands of combinations that bring truly indulgent solutions to your food and beverage application challenges.
Dairy Can Be Your Indulgent Application Solution
Taste continues to be the #1 driver of food and beverage purchase decisions for consumers. Edlong understands that the success of your product may hinge on delivering authentic indulgent flavor, whether sweet or savory or rich and creamy. Indulgence can mean different things to each customer, which is why we take the time to understand how you are looking to position your product. For example, are you calling out unique or premium ingredients? Are you positioning your product as nostalgic or a comfort food? Do you want the product to be permissibly indulgent with all the boost of flavor but in a smaller pack size or calorie count? Are you trying to match a Gold Standard or provide ethnic or regional signature flavors that truly excite?
Our global team of flavor experts has a proven track record of leveraging and customizing our best-in-class library of dairy, dairy-free, and vegan flavors to deliver the rich, creamy, sweet taste of true indulgence to your food and beverage applications, while meeting your product development and labeling goals.Laura Enriquez Master Scientist, Strategic Applications
Authentic Dairy & Dairy-Free Solutions
Our global team of flavor experts has a proven track record of leveraging and customizing our best-in-class library of dairy and dairy-free flavors to provide indulgence flavor solutions that deliver the rich, creamy, sweet taste of true indulgence to your food and beverage applications, while meeting your product development and labeling goals.
The Edlong team approaches indulgent profiles as a Chef approaches a recipe; the right flavor creates impact, can maintain the taste integrity of Gold Standard recipes, and can balance the end product. Our Applications team has a depth of experience in developing the ideal compounds that can amplify the indulgence and decadence of a dish or product, such as this flight of marshmallows (links to s’mores demo), while maintaining mouthfeel that is distinctly that of real dairy. Our concentrated butter, milk, cream, cultured, sweet dairy and other flavors deliver the impact of indulgent ingredients, even in lower fat or lower calorie formulations – all while reducing the cost-in-use of traditional dairy commodities.
Whether you’re looking to match a Gold Standard, mimic very specific profile notes, create your own signature authentic taste profile, replicate regional or global profiles, enhance sweetness and creaminess, or boost the impact of your overall flavor profile, our food and beverage sensory scientists, chefs, and applications experts are at the ready to work with you and deliver indulgent tastes that best suit your specific application’s needs.
