Focus on Dairy Ingredients: Health & Wellness

Spotlighting Dairy's Role in Health & Wellness

More and more research is highlighting dairy’s strong and specific role in health and wellness. While fluid milk and typical shelf products are top of mind for consumers, utilizing specific dairy ingredients can give food scientists and product developers (and even chefs) great ideas for increasing protein, decreasing sugar and making products more nutritious. ADPI offers many resources for those in the food and beverage industry to utilize dairy ingredients at the highest level. From training on specific nutritional information and how dairy plays a role in pediatric and senior health, to utilizing our NEW functionality and composition guide, below are various resources to help promote and utilize dairy ingredients to support health and wellness at all ages and stages in life.
