Whey to Go

With non-fat dry milk (NFDM) and milk protein concentrate (MPC) price fluctuations, and supplies tight and deliveries delayed, Grande Custom Ingredients Group rolls out Grande Bravo, a functional whey protein to address these problems.

Grande Bravo provides a range of functional qualities standard NFDM and MPC can’t offer. It’s a 100 percent-natural ingredient that binds water, decreases syneresis and purge, increases creaminess, improves texture, extends shelf life, increases yield and enhances freeze-thaw stability.

This functional whey protein is also a major cost reducer for most applications, since one-half a pound can often replace a full pound of NFDM or MPC to achieve similar viscosity. Grande Bravo functions especially well in creamy products such as cream sauces, cheese sauces, creamy soups, dips, dressings and gravies as well as frozen desserts and processed meat products. The product is also USDA/FDA approved and certified USPH Grade A, kosher (dairy), halal and EU-compliant.
