Flavor Extracts for Dairy Products

Dairy Partners Benefit from No Minimum Orders and Short Lead Times

Creating a distinctive, signature dairy product that delivers the flavor profile you set out to achieve heavily relies on great tasting flavors and extracts. In today’s dairy market, you know it’s not enough to add just any flavor. Mundane flavors and extracts will never produce that sensational taste you need your product to foster in order to differentiate your brand.

With Bickford Flavors’ all-natural, certified Kosher flavors, your dairy application - whether it's a dairy or milk substitute product - can capture those authentic, rich, sweet, or savory notes that bring certain dairy products to a level all their own.

Make Bickford Your Dairy Flavour Supplier

Made from high-quality, all-natural flavor sources, our dairy flavor extracts are:

  • Never suspend in alcohol, with the exception of Pure Vanilla, which contains 35% alcohol by volume
  • Suspended in a water base
  • Highly heat stable
  • Formulated to be stronger and more concentrated than other flavoring methods
  • Free of additional salt and sugar

Why a Water-Soluble Base?

Water-soluble base suspensions are more neutral, superior carriers to alcohol. Additionally, they impart no added flavor and do not evaporate as rapidly when exposed to heat. This allows the dairy flavor to taste better, smell better, and not bake-out – as a traditional alcohol-based extract does.

For certain applications - like chocolates - we also offer a range of oil-based flavors.
