Nearly two-thirds of the world's adult population are lactose intolerant or allergic to milk proteins. In addition to nutritional reasons many consumers are motivated by ethical reasons to look for a plant-based or simply more sustainable alternative to dairy products. In the past, dairy-free food and beverages were often based on soy and had significant sensory disadvantages so that consumers simply did not like their taste.
Döhler offers its customers from the food and beverage industry a new and sensory convincing portfolio of Dairy-free ingredients based on almonds, coconut, rice, oat and soy. This portfolio of dairy alternatives makes it easy for our customers to develop the delicious lactose-free/dairy-free food and beverages needed to access completely new consumer groups.
Along with being promoted as “lactose-free”, there are a variety of different product positionings available, depending on the “Dairy Alternative Ingredient”. These include “vegan”, “halal”, “kosher”, “gluten-free”, “GMO-free” or “allergen-free”. All of Döhler’s alternatives to cow's milk are characterised by a particularly balanced sensory profile – so there is nothing standing in the way of milk-like indulgence even without milk.
