NZMP ingredients for processed cheese
As the primary ingredient in processed cheese, natural cheese largely defines the flavour, structure and quality of your product. We have over 16 unique ingredient cheese varieties, multiple formats and a range of maturities – from young functional cheeses to mature cheeses full of flavour. Our extensive range gives you the freedom to perfect your product’s flavour and performance.
With our expertise, choosing the right protein to enhance the performance of your processed cheeses is easy. Our extensive range of standard and specialised proteins includes quality milk powders, milk protein concentrates (MPCs), caseins and caseinates, each designed to enhance and control the performance of almost any processed cheese. They can help you reduce costs and increase control of functional protein levels in your products.
From creamy yellow butters and pure anhydrous milk fats (AMFs) to high-fat cream cheeses and milk fat blends, cream cheeses and frozen cream, our cost-effective cream products offer excellent composition control, and a luxurious natural dairy flavour. Optimise composition, efficiency and cost, while preserving premium flavour.
