Looking to shake things up in snacking with bold new flavor solutions?

The global snack food market is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 5.35% in the period from 2016 to 2025. In part, this growth can be attributed to consumers purchasing snacks as a replacement for meals, driven by a preference for convenience.

Our R&D teams help customers apply an array of dairy powders, seasoning blends and natural dairy-type flavors and dairy ingredients to deliver distinctive custom flavors to a variety of favorite snack products while meeting clean label certifications – such as certified kosher, halal, GMO-free and organic.

Our DFA Ingredient Solutions products have you covered.

We can apply our flavorful dairy ingredients and seasoning blends to your snack products and menu items as a topping, coating or filling.

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 snacks, mask off-note flavors or customize unique options to meet your desired profile.

Specialty Dairy Powders

Our dairy powders help boost cheese flavors, including Cheddar, Parmesan, Butter or Sour Cream.

Ascentra®

Our award-winning flavor enhancer, ASCENTRA®, naturally intensifies the perception of salt and other savory nuances, while heightening dairy flavor and minimizing sodium.

Seasoning Blends

We can top off your snack with our seasoning powders, using a distinct on-trend flavor, whether you desire something sweet (Strawberries and Cream), spicy (Spicy Citrus Jalapeno) or savory (French Onion).

DFA’s Response to COVID-19

Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) is committed to ensuring that our farm members’, employees’ and customers’ health and wellbeing is at the forefront of our efforts. As everyone is well aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has escalated substantially in the past weeks and days. DFA has been actively monitoring the situation and following Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations.

We are dedicated to maintaining supply chain continuity; the fluid milk and powdered milk supply chain is not anticipated to have any substantial impact due to the outbreak. DFA has farm families across the United States providing milk to our manufacturing sites, and multiple plants have the capability to process milk to ensure our customers’ supply chain is not interrupted, even if worst case scenario should occur and a site needs to temporarily cease operations.
