June 17, 2011, Sturtevant, WI – Benelact can reduce cholesterol while preserving taste, functionality and nutrients in milk products, the company says.

The Benelact technology, developed by Alliance Enterprises, isolates and extracts cholesterol using traditional dairy equipment. It can be used to produce a variety of full-fat, reduced-fat and fat-free cheeses, such as cheddar, mozzarella, Colby, and queso blanco, without adding chemicals, plant sterols or preservatives to products.

“Processors, retailers and foodservice companies can deliver the heart-healthy cheeses consumers want without sacrificing flavour and functionality,” said Brandon Malacara, Benelact marketing director.

Alliance Enterprises reports Benelact can remove up to 90 per cent of the cholesterol from milk.
