Denali Ingredients adds line of extruded products

Denali Ingredients LLC introduced a new line of extruded products such as brownie bits, cookie dough pieces, cheesecake pieces and other decadent offerings. These items come just eight months after the company’s New Berlin, Wis., headquarters and facility added a line of stabilizers to its core products.

The ice cream “extruded product” market, which consists of an unbaked, soft ingredient that is often formed into cubes or shapes, is a growing segment due in part to increasing consumer demand for decadent ice cream varieties. Denali Ingredients is just one of four or five manufacturers in the United States to offer these unique items that remain soft and chewy despite extreme frozen conditions.

Denali invested more than $3.5 million to develop the necessary production equipment used in making its new extruded products. This is in addition to a $2 million expansion last summer that increased raw ingredients storage capabilities by 80% and included construction of a state-of-the-art pilot lab to allow customers to run simulated production in “miniature” scale to better test concepts before going into full production. 

“Denali Ingredients has always stood for fair pricing, consistent quality and unparalleled order fulfillment,” said Neal Glaeser, president of Denali Ingredients. “The extruded dough products add another product technology in which we can apply these same principles to better meet the growing interest in decadent and unusual ice cream flavor combinations.”
 
The 110,000-square-foot facility produces more than 40 million pounds of ice cream and dairy ingredients each year. During the past 12 months, the company’s total investment exceeded $5 million and created an estimated 12 new jobs.

Glaeser expects the company’s extrusion line to expand quickly.

“It’s a whole new ingredients world for us, and we’re going to have fun with it,” he said. “I imagine our talented R&D group will develop some really unique extruded products in the near future.”

Denali continues to be a leading supplier of chocolate coatings, fudge sauces, powders, fruit variegates and other ingredients for the dairy, ice cream and foodservice industries.
