High Butter Prices Bringing You Down?
Clean Label Butter Concentrates are an effective butter reduction / replacement strategy. 1) Save your company money, 2) retain "butter” label, and 3) preserve authentic butter flavor and aroma.
What are butter concentrates?
Butter Concentrates are quite literally concentrated, real butter.
A proprietary process is used to concentrate commodity butter up 5 times the strength of 1X butter. This natural "concentration process" is conducted by First Choice Ingredients dairy experts in their state-of-the-art NSF: SQF 2000 Level 2 Accredited facility.
What do they taste like?
Butter Concentrates have an authentic, "fresh butter" sensory profile. They have a true butter aroma and rounded, balanced flavor. They do not have any added chemicals or isolates—they're pure, buttery goodness.
What do they label as?
Labels as clean as:
Contains: Butter (Cream, Salt), Flavor.
(Manufactured using USDA Grade AA Butter)
"butter concentrate" vs. "natural butter flavor"?
Butter Concentrates and Butter Flavors both provide intense flavor impact and are clean label. Their label and usage rate are the key-driving differentiators —
- Butter Concentrates- Label as*: "Butter", Typical Usage: 1.0-5.0%
- Natural Butter Flavors- Label as*: "Natural Flavor" or "Natural Butter Flavor", Typical Usage: 0.1-1.0%
Therefore butter concentrates allow companies to maintain a "Butter" label—keeping Marketing teams happy and appealing to a very reserved clean label ingredient declaration.
*Speak with your regulatory specialist to determine appropriate labeling for your application.
