Consistently high quality in your plant-based dairy products

How to make your plant-based dairy products consistently better and produce the same great product more efficiently

Plant-based diary


It is fair to say that the plant-based dairy segment is in rapid development. And market reports state even further potential for strong growth in the segment in coming years. But market potential is one thing. Another thing is how to conquer your share of this growth market.

Essentially, success in your plant-based production boils down to being able to consistently deliver a high-quality product that lives up to your consumers’ expectations. Consumers of plant-based dairy products want products that are high on quality and health benefits, and they have an increasing number of options to choose from. It is therefore critical that you are able to deliver products of a consistently high quality with the same taste, look and viscosity every time. And you need to quickly adapt to new developments and opportunities in the market to stay one step ahead of the competitors.

But how to achieve this?

Optimal use of raw materials is one of the key drivers to ensure yield and profit for any food processing operation. Standardisation holds the key to keeping your production on target every time, ensuring that products meet the precise balance of constituents such as fat, protein, total solids and moisture. This enables you to make the most of your raw materials and ensure consistent taste, texture, and quality of your final products.

Deliver the same high plant-based dairy quality again and again


Did you know that the same market-leading quality and production control instruments that are used for traditional dairy products can also be used for plant-based applications?

The plant-based production process is more complex than conventional dairy production with more elements in the mix, all adding to a potentially costly production process. As a leading partner to the dairy industry, we understand the complexities in the production of plant-based products and know that the parameters for quality assurance can present many challenges. Currently, there is major untapped potential for improvement among manufacturers of plant-based dairy products as many are unaware that it is possible to control quality parameters just as easily and quickly as for conventional dairy products.

These controls can include tests on raw material, precise measurements of critical control parameters and rapid tests and analyses of final products. We can collaborate with you on identifying the parameters that will offer the most value for money in your plant-based production, and we already offer analytical packages for fat, protein, total solids and moisture.

With these measures you will be able to have the right composition in your plant-based dairy product. Every time. The result is consistent plant-based dairy quality, peace of mind for you and your customers and money saved through reduced waste of raw materials.

Test plant-based drinks without time-consuming calibration work

Global calibrations for plant-based drinks allow producers to act more quickly to new business opportunities. The calibrations allow the MilkoScan™ FT3 to be used for testing six plant-based drink products and a range of parameters (fat, total solids, sugar and protein) for each product type. In this way, the speed, accuracy and ease-of-use associated with the benchmark MilkoScan™ solution can be leveraged for plant-based testing without time-consuming calibration work involved.
