Let’s Dish about
Soups and
Sauces

We can help you soup up the dairy flavor.

Looking for a soup or sauce that hits the spot in any season? DairiConcepts can help. For over 20 years, we have delivered innovative dairy solutions for food manufacturers.

Today’s consumers see soup as more than simply a starter, ladling it up as a meal or a snack. While shelf-ready soups are seeing moderate growth (1%), fresh deli-prepared soup sales are up 16% in the past year.1  In the sauce category, shoppers increasingly seek products with no added sugar, artificial flavors, artificial colors or high-fructose corn syrup.

Our customizable products can help address your goals, whether you want to create a unique flavor profile, achieve a cleaner label, or enhance dairy taste in cream soups, chowders or savory tomato- or cheese-based sauces.

We can also offer options that help achieve a cleaner label, by reducing sodium, removing artificial flavors, or reformulating Organic, Kosher or Halal recipes.

Our products cause quite a stir.

Our dairy-based products can help you serve up flavorful creations, with the exact taste profile you want – and without the sodium you don’t.

Dairy Flavors

Our natural dairy flavor solutions include Cheddar (mild and aged), Parmesan, Nacho, Blue, Asiago and Butter. We can heighten dairy taste in soups and sauces, mask off-note flavors, or customize unique options to meet your desired profile.

Hard Grated Cheeses

We offer a variety of real hard grated cheeses, such as Dry Grated Parmesan, Romano, and Cheese Blends to enhance dairy flavor in tomato bisque, alfredo sauce, red sauce, chili con queso and more.

Ascentra®

Today’s consumers seek less sodium in soups, stews and sauces. Our award-winning flavor enhancer, Ascentra, naturally intensifies the perception of salt, while minimizing sodium for a cleaner label.
