Dried buttermilk - high quality ingredient for many foods  

Our buttermilk powder sweet is spray dried at the Uelzen site in a gentle process. The raw material buttermilk comes from our own butter factory in Bismark, where our subsidiary Altmarkkäserei Uelzena GmbH is based. There it occurs as a co-product in the production of mildly acidified premium German butter and sweet cream butter. So we always have high-quality raw materials and are also independent of the availability of buttermilk on the free milk market.

Buttermilk powder is a good alternative to using skimmed milk powder or whole milk powder, especially if you want a particularly fresh and slightly sour milk taste. As a powder, it is used, for example, for the production of baking mixes, confectionery, instant desserts or ready meals. Recombined into liquid buttermilk, it can also be used for the production of fresh milk products and other milk products, e.g. milk mixed drinks. The nutritional values ​​are also convincing, because it contains little fat but more than 30% high-quality milk protein.

We supply the food industry and relevant wholesalers with buttermilk powder 25 kg in a classic paper bag with hygienic inliner. Our range of milk-based ingredients for bulk consumers is supplemented by skimmed milk powder, milk fats and other milk products. Our subsidiary WS Warmsener specialties is also a specialist for the production of sweetened condensed milk.
