From the IFT Expo: dairy ingredients play well with vegetables, legumes in soups, beverages

The U.S. Dairy Export Council shows three food and beverage concepts made with milk protein concentrate, cheese and whey protein.

ift booth previewsDairy proteins, as part of a higher-protein diet, can help consumers maintain a healthy weight, curb hunger, get lean, enhance exercise recovery and maintain muscle with aging, according to the U.S. Dairy Export Council.

At this week’s Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting & Food Expo (June 21 to 24 in New Orleans), USDEC is demonstrating the many different ways dairy ingredients can be used for flavor, functionality and nutrition.

At Booth 4529, USDEC is serving these food concepts that include dairy ingredients from U.S.-based processors:

  • Lentil Power Soup. This lentil-curry soup uses proteins from milk protein concentrate and a concentrated casein ingredient. Each serving offers 20 grams of protein (40% Daily Value) and 35% DV of calcium.
  • Poutine-inspired Cheese Dippers. Poutine is the classic French-Canadian dish of French fries, gravy and cheese curds. USDEC’s concept combines sweet potatoes, Juustoleipa-style cheese and a rich mushroom sauce. A serving has 30% DV of calcium and 15 grams of protein.
  • Veggie Burst. This post-workout beverage or afternoon pick-me-up includes 12 grams of whey protein (24% DV) per serving. Added milk minerals provide 30% DV of calcium.

“The U.S. dairy industry continues to expand its diverse ingredient portfolio, build meaningful partnerships and deliver resources to accelerate customers’ success,” said Vikki Nicholson, senior vice president, global marketing for USDEC. “These strengths can provide food and beverage manufacturers peace of mind to help bring innovative products to market on a global scale.”

The U.S. Dairy Export Council is a nonprofit, independent membership organization that represents the global trade interests of U.S. dairy producers, proprietary processors and cooperatives, ingredient suppliers and export traders that is funded primarily by the dairy checkoff program through Dairy Management Inc.
