The company said the new product is in response to consumers buying more organic food. Between 2015 and 2019, the market grew by 8.7% per year to reach €112.3bn ($135m) in 2019.
Global consumption is concentrated in North America and Europe, which together account for more than nine-tenths of global consumption of organic products, according to l'Agence Bio. (2020).
Dairy functional ingredients such as milk powder are incorporated in the formulation of many food categories. Lactalis Ingredients said its new whole milk powder meets the demand of manufacturers wishing to formulate organic food products.
The milk comes exclusively from French dairy farms that comply with the specifications for organic farming. The organic specifications guarantee a product free from neutralizing agents, antibiotics, preservatives, and other additives. The whole milk is spray dried to remove the water, and the Ecocert-certified ingredient, which has 26% fat, can be used in applications such as chocolate, dairy and baking.
