November 2011/Prepared Foods-- Autumn often marks the return of favorite comfort foods, such as soups, sauces and gravies--traditionally seen as “heavy” foods. Ingredients such as Grande Bravo® Functional Whey Protein Concentrates are an excellent solution for reducing the fat content of those favorites, without sacrificing mouthfeel or flavor. Grande Bravo can be used to replace more than half the cream in applications, such as Alfredo and other sauces, while maintaining texture and taste in the finished product. From meats to frozen foods, Grande Bravo can help producers cost effectively meet consumer demands for taste and texture, while reducing fat and increasing protein content.
