Butter Buds Inc. is excited to return to Fi Europe, where we look forward to discovering more global food trends and sharing Fi Europe’s world of taste and opportunity. We are proud to be a part of the community of food & beverage tastemakers working to continually innovate and improve today’s eating experiences. Read on to find out more about Butter Buds® dairy and specialty concentrates and what visitors to Fi Europe stand 3.1J100, USA Pavilion will find—and taste.
What are Butter Buds®, exactly? They are dairy and specialty ingredients created using the art and science of concentrated flavour technology. Many of the world’s top food manufacturers, specialty food companies and foodservice institutions use Butter Buds’ products for today’s on-trend and better-for-you foods. Family-owned Butter Buds Inc. helps customers deliver unique and trend-driven formulations with healthier, cost-effective, and convenient concentrates that offer rich taste, superior mouthfeel, and a long shelf life.
The healthier options consumers want
Consumers continue to lean toward healthier, more natural foods. For some, that may mean reduced fat or organic versions of the foods they love, while for others, only a clean label will do.
With Butter Buds®, low-fat products can be formulated to retain the flavour and eating pleasure of a full-fat product, with extremely low application levels that result in the contribution of less than 0.1% fat in finished products.
Organic, clean label and more
Butter Buds Inc. offers innovative flavour products and customized flavour solutions that respond to consumer demand for clean label, organic, dairy alternatives and more.
Butter Buds® offers several product lines, including both organic and clean label options. The Butter Buds® line of organic dairy concentrates are made with certified-organic ingredients and provide all the same great benefits as our non-organic products.
Butter Buds® clean label concentrates are designed to cater to surging consumer demand while meeting modern formulation requirements. They add value for food & beverage manufacturers and help create more appealing labels through ingredient lists that are shorter and easier to understand, while maintaining texture and overall appeal. They include options that are free from: maltodextrin, artificial colours, preservatives, trans fats, and GMOs.
Benefits for a variety of applications
Whether you are creating anything from delectable baked goods and desserts to savoury soups and sauces—and pretty much anything in between—Butter Buds® has the right products to enhance your application. In partnership with our customers, Butter Buds Inc. continues to push the boundaries of flavour technology.
Our customers can count on us to deliver rich flavour in all manners of applications without compromising functionality. Of course, our products add the rich and creamy taste of butter to baked goods, desserts and more. They also go beyond taste alone by helping to create a full-bodied mouthfeel, for a more satisfying eating experience.
Taste the difference
At Fi Europe, we will be featuring a delicious reduced-butter Danish cookie. Visitors will be able to experience how you can achieve rich mouthfeel and a premium butter profile, with a 53% butter reduction from full-butter versions. This cookie’s real dairy quality and delectable buttery goodness comes courtesy of: Butter Buds® Butter Flavor AB for fatty richness and Butter Buds® High Concentrate Uncolored for strong middle butter notes.
Calling all flavours
Brands creating non-dairy applications for vegans and consumers who must or prefer to avoid dairy ingredients can offer them buttery taste and creamy texture, with the help of Butter Buds®. Our non-dairy concentrated dairy flavours provide the flavour of butter and cream without the risk of exposure to dairy allergens. They provide creamy dairy flavour, add richness and mask off flavours in ice milk, yogurt, icings, confectionary, dessert mixes, bakery products and more. They are low in fat and cholesterol and are Kosher and Halal certified.
What’s more, our Butter Buds® and specialty concentrates help enhance other flavour profiles, both sweet and savoury, to elevate the eating experience. Butter Buds® products heighten other food flavours such as chocolate and vanilla in sweet products and garlic in savoury offerings. For example, our CocoaButter Buds® provide the richness and mouthfeel functionality that can make your chocolate flavoured application more complete and satisfying.
