Epi Ingredients’ Kefir Powder – Slightly sour and deliciously creamy
As one of the oldest known fermented dairy products, kefir is sought after for its microbial diversity documented to grant it many health benefits. Packed with the traditional kefir yeast and bacteria, Epilac Kefir powder will definitely give finished products the gut boosting abilities consumers are seeking! It is also low lactose, rich in protein and low in fat which are other attributes consumers are fond of. Epilac Kefir powder’s flavor profile offers mild lactic acidity paired with rich aromatic ‘ripe fruits’ notes as well as subtle yogurt notes, making it a great option of healthy snacking with a refreshing finish.
Epi Ingredients’ Skyr Powder – Soft and sweet
Skyr is an Icelandic fermented acid-curd soft cheese made from skim milk, staple of the Vikings’ diet. High in protein & low in lactose, it is the result of a double fermentation and an intense straining which gives it its uniquely dense texture. Epilac Skyr powder contains the same live and active cultures as standard yogurt, Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. Bulgaricus, thus awarding it the same health benefits. It also features a high protein content of 50% and less than 1% fat, making it ideal for applications targeting health-conscious consumers seeking the excitement of trying foods from other cultures. With a distinctive sensory profile featuring intense lactic acidity as well as notes of curd cheese and yogurt, it is very versatile and adapted for both sweet and savory applications.
