Get The Scoop On Dips and Dressings

Looking to add a vibrant zing to your snack dips and salad dressings? We can help. Our innovative dairy ingredients have helped boost dairy flavor in dips and dressings for food manufacturers—all with clean label possibilities.

We can help you spice things up.

Consumers are making dips the life of the party, as evidenced by a 12.4 percent increase in sales over the past 5 years. Interest continues to heat up as cream cheese-based dips get paired with trending flavors like Buffalo, Pimento and other spicy options.¹

Our versatile dairy ingredients can help you achieve distinct customized flavors, bold notes and a well-rounded dairy taste. We offer custom formulation, fermentation and top-noted flavors to create a unique taste and flavor sensation in the dips and salad dressings category.

We also can help with attaining clean label certifications – such as non-GMO – with real ingredients that ensure product authenticity and help meet regulatory requirements for international distribution.

Our products enhance dairy taste by applying the art and science of flavor.

We can help you create a one-of-a-kind flavor masterpiece, with the exact taste profile you want – and without the sodium you don’t.

Dairy-Type Flavors

Our natural dairy-type flavor solutions include Cheddar (mild and aged), Parmesan, Nacho, Blue, Asiago and butter. We can heighten dairy taste in dips and salad dressings, mask off-note flavors, or customize options to meet your desired profile.

Seasoning Blends

With our seasoning blends, we can harness natural fermentation to dial in flavor notes in dips and salad dressings, or add natural flavors to achieve the desired taste and flavor profile.

Ascentra®

Our award-winning flavor enhancer, ASCENTRA, naturally intensifies salt and other savory nuances in dips and dressings, while minimizing the perception of sodium and helping achieve a cleaner label. In reduced-fat salad dressings, Ascentra can also help to mitigate the acidic feel caused by removing fat.

Cheese

Dairy ingredients, such as cheese, play a significant role in many dressings and dips as they delivery exceptional flavor. We offer a full portfolio of cheeses— such as our hard Italian cheeses, which provide an authentic flavor and excellent texture to dips and dressings.

Sweet Whey Powder

Sweet whey powder offers great viscosity and can be used in a variety of product applications including dips and dressings.

Concentrated Pastes

You can use concentrated pastes as a building block to tailor to your desired flavor with three levels of concentrated pastes: bold, bolder and boldest. It’s easy to mix, requires minimal heating and blending and can help reduce the cost of extra formulation.
