From enhancing other flavors to providing a richer mouthfeel, Butter Buds offers formulation expertise, new ideas and ingredient solutions needed to help brands solve formulation challenges and stand out in a crowded marketplace.” Butter Buds is showcasing a variety of real dairy, non-dairy, organic and clean label ingredient innovations for IFT22 sampling, including:

  • Better Cheddar Mac & Cheese
    This dish is cheesy and ultra-creamy. Mac & cheese is the universal comfort food—the cheesier, the better—but how do you give yours better cheddar flavor without creating formulation headaches or hiking costs? Butter Buds® Cheese Buds 32X Cheddar, features cheddar cheese middle notes and savory butter base notes for a well-rounded cheddar flavor profile at a much lower—and more forgiving—usage rate than standard cheese powders, for unprecedented formulation flexibility.
  • Beer and Cheese Soup
    This delicious soup features the top two food groups, along with robust flavor and rich, velvety texture. Now your brand’s version can be even yummier than the rest, with Butter Buds® new Dried Beer Extract Plus, which provides the great taste of beer in an easy-to-use powdered form. It features upfront malt notes and adds brown middle and end notes to baked goods, seasonings and sauces, or confections. Dried Beer Extract Plus can be used under the flavor threshold to mimic umami, yeast extract or hydrolyzed vegetable protein flavor characteristics. Butter Buds real dairy ingredients add rich flavor and full-bodied mouthfeel with better texture, while masking off-flavors, rounding out any harsh notes and improving the nutritional profile of a variety of food applications. Butter Buds products offer unique flavor profiles and functionality for delicious, healthy, ingenious ingredients that help deliver consumer-pleasing finished products. And because Butter Buds products are made with real butterfat, they provide 80 times the flavor and strength of real butter, which translates to better flavor and cost optimization through low usage rates.
