The CheeseMaker alternative

In the fiercely competitive markets for bulk consumer products, more and more manufacturers of cheese products are interested in reducing the use of expensive dairy ingredients. Replacing them wholly or in part with a less expensive, easier-to use alternative saves on manufacturing costs as well as smoothing out a wide range of practical production processes.

Partly replacing key milk proteins, such as natural cheese or rennet casein, with potato-based CheeseMaker specialty starch ingredients enables you to manufacture cost-effective imitation cheese products, with no quality or appearance downsides.


CheeseMaker solutions for your particular production needs 

CheeseMaker BL

CheeseMaker BL solutions are specially developed to meet the practical requirements of manufacturers of “block” cheese products.

There are CheeseMaker BL solutions that can replace milk protein in semi-hard block cheese and others that are suitable for hard cheese alternatives, such as imitation parmesan cheese.

CheeseMaker starches for semi-hard cheese differ with regard to meltability in the imitation cheese products – from imitation pizza cheese with excellent melting to resistant melting in cheese insets, fillings, etc.

The range also provides solutions to replace milk proteins in imitation white cheese, and thus achieve important cost savings. And you still get a product with good organoleptic characteristics, such as a firm appearance and creamy mouthfeel.
