Slideshow: Dairy innovations seek to reach more consumers

Kansas City — With 2023 just around the corner, companies are predicting the flavors and trends that will dominate next year.

Predicted trends for 2023 include consumers determined to weather the pandemic, take control of their health and improve the health of our planet, enabling comfort, self-care and luxury. In a December interview, Flavorchem marketing analyst Rebecca Shurhay said that authentic flavors and ingredients from Latin America are also included in New Year’s trends. Beyond categories, Mexican dessert flavors such as tre leche, dulce de leche and churros have been applied to non-dessert categories.

Mexican dairy and chorizo ​​producer V&V Supremo Foods, Inc. has expanded its range of crema products to include five flavors inspired by Latin American cuisine.

Flavors include Crema Chihuahua, Crema Mexicana, Crema Mexicana de Casa, Crema Centro Americana and Crema Salvadorenha. Crema Chihuahua is a crème fraiche of Mexican crema with a hint of tartness. Crema Mexicana is a Mexican-style Crema Agria with a “charming bright golden color” and Crema Mexicana de Casa is a Mexican-style Crema with a “very slight acidity and creamy hue”. Crema Centro Americana is served in the traditional Central American style and is savory, characterized by a “very slight taste” and a touch of salt. According to the company, Crema Salvadorenha pays homage to the style of El Salvador, offering “savory and dairy-rich” flavors.

Gilberto Villaseñor II, the company’s Chief Visionary Officer, said:

In another segment of the dairy category, companies are catering to consumers reaching for sustainably sourced products or products with animal welfare requirements.

Bel Group and Bel Brands USA launched Nurishh animal-free cream cheese spread. Bel has developed the Nurishh Incredible Dairy Animal Free Cream Cheese Spread Alternative in collaboration with Perfect His Day in Berkeley, CA. This company uses precision fermentation to develop milk proteins.

Nulishh is Bel’s first alternative dairy brand. Starting January 1, 2023, the animal-free cream cheese will be available in his three flavors: Original, Strawberry, Chive and Onion.
