Lactose free butter

Lactose-free butter for the production of your branded products  

Lactose-free or low-lactose product variants naturally belong to many product ranges and brand ranges today, especially for dairy products. But there is also increasing demand for other lactose-free foods. According to estimates, up to 75% of the world's adult population are affected by an intolerance to lactose (milk sugar), a so-called lactose intolerance, although there are very large differences between regions.

Lactose-free butter as a substitute for premium German butter turns your products into lactose-free products easily, unless no other lactose-containing ingredients are used. Alternatively, you can also use concentrated butter (anhydrous milk fat with 99.8 percent fat content), which is naturally lactose-free due to the high milk fat content and the separation of other milk components such as protein and milk sugar. For the manufacturing of your lactose-free products, we also supply milk products as lactose-free variants, e.g. lactose-free cream products

For us as a manufacturer, lactose-free butter is one of the special products in our milk fats range. Like the recombined butter, we do not produce this product in our own butter factory in Bismark, but in our headquarters in Uelzen, where we have some special technologies for milk fat processing. We also use these for the production of milk fat fractions, cholesterol-reduced butter fat or individual milk fat compounds.
