The Beverage Applications Program provides technical support to dairy ingredient manufacturers who sell to beverage companies and product development support to beverage manufacturers using dairy ingredients in their finished products. The program is available to help companies understand the functionality of their ingredients in ready to drink and dry mix beverage applications. Our staff provides a strong base of knowledge in the use of milk and whey protein ingredients, as well as non-protein dairy ingredients such as permeate, in all types of beverages. We focus much of our development on dairy based protein enhanced high acid beverages, but we are also able to develop dairy based protein enhanced beverages in the low acid category.
