Many consumers today are actively looking for foods and beverages that don't conflict with their health and wellness goals – and dairy drinks can respond well to this need. Providing an ideal platform for fortification, and offering the 'health halo' of a naturally derived product, dairy-based beverages are growing rapidly at a CAGR of 6.1%*.
The fortification of dairy drinks has been a long-standing trend, especially in serving the needs of consumer segments requiring products with added nutritional benefits, like children and seniors. From adding vitamins and minerals to boosting the natural dairy components such as protein and calcium, Corbion's solutions address all areas of dairy drink fortification.

If your aim is to enhance the flavor of your dairy drinks, yogurts, or other beverages without altering their pH, lactic acid is the acidulant of choice. Corbion's dairy drink acidification solutions can help you achieve exactly the right flavor profile, viscosity, mouthfeel, and protein stability. Our lactic acids can also be used in combination with live cultures to increase capacity and optimize the output of your final fermented product.

Our PURAC® portfolio of mineral lactates and gluconates offers a diverse range of benefits for your dairy or yogurt drink product . With high bioavailability, solubility, and a neutral taste, solutions like PURACAL® QStable can boost calcium content in any dairy-based or dairy-alternative beverage while providing solid stability and a smooth mouthfeel. For more viscous yogurt drinks, our PURACAL® PP calcium lactate solution fits the bill.
Where solubility really matters, Corbion can help there, too. Even in the production of fruit-based dairy products, when fortification occurs earlier in the process, or in the creation of small-portion products, our minerals dissolve quickly and uniformly.
We also offer premixes for convenience and speed. Using our NUTRIVAN®, GLUCONAL®, and PURAMEX® vitamin and mineral premix brands, you can both fortify your products effectively and reduce production time and costs.
With Corbion's fortification and acidification capabilities on your side, you can create the dairy drink you know the market is looking for. Get in touch with our expert team to find out more about our industry-leading solutions for dairy product manufacturers.
