The demineralised whey is designed to meet rising demand for premium organic infant milk formula
FrieslandCampina Ingredients has introduced Deminal 90 Organic, a demineralised whey ingredient for the burgeoning organic infant formula market. Manufactured in the Netherlands, the ingredient is an organic version of another product from the company. As a component of infant milk formula, it enables manufacturers to achieve their desired casein:whey ratio while limiting mineral content.
The ingredient is made of fresh milk from the company’s own select group of organic dairy farmers, who follow unique organic farming standards that go beyond legislation, achieved via the company’s on-farm monitoring tools, which measure criteria such as biodiversity and animal welfare.
“The organic trend has been growing steadily for years and is now booming as more consumers than ever become aware of the impact their choices have on health, and on the environment. By introducing an organic variant of our Demineralised Whey 90 ingredient, we're responding to their needs and preferences when it comes to early life nutrition,” said Sophie Nicolas, Marketing Manager, Early Life Nutrition at FrieslandCampina Ingredients.
“What makes Deminal 90 Organic so special is the care we take over the process. From farm to factory, everything is handled right here in the Netherlands. Not only does this maximise traceability, but we also excel in organic standards, thanks to our unique monitoring tools which measure biodiversity and animal welfare on our organic farms. Plus, on a technical level, our ingredient offers low and stable mineral content and high microbiological standards, providing our customers with a unique new opportunity to strengthen or expand their organic offerings.”
In 2020, the company invested in its locations at Bedum and Workum in the Netherlands, allowing for a certified and scalable production to meet growing consumer demand for organic products.
“We’re proud of how comprehensive our organic ingredient portfolio has now become,” Nicolas said. “Deminal 90 is the newest member of an organic family of products including Lactopure Lactose Organic, Vivinal GOS Organic and Hyvital Whey EtD 100 Organic. Together, they cover core and functional components of infant milk formula, which means manufacturers now have more options than ever to enhance their organic positioning and brands in ways that truly resonate with today’s consumers.”
