Case Study: Sugar Reduction in Milkshakes

A large dairy company which supplies own-label flavoured milk drinks into large retail outlets approached ITS to help develop and extend its UHT-stable flavour range.
ITS created a flavour and texture system which allowed the added sugar in the milk drink to be reduced by 30%. The system not only retained a recognisable level of sweetness, but also delivered the rich creamy texture that is characteristic of this type of product.
The use of sugar content claims, such as “low sugar” has as much as doubled on dairy products in the last five years, according to data from Innova Market Insights.
ITS allows its customers to tap into this booming opportunity.

Case Study: Flavoured Cheese

ITS was briefed by a prominent dairy company to create a ‘Champagne’ flavoured mature cheddar cheese. Concepts around a ‘Sparkling Wine’ natural flavour theme were developed and evaluated in the cheese by crumbling and re-moulding it with the liquid flavouring incorporated.
ITS established the correct flavour profile and dosage to cut through the acidity of the cheese. The product was successfully launched into the market and received positive feedback from consumers.
