Uelzena offers high-quality food ingredients and expertise in the milk fat processing sector of the food industry.
Skimmed milk and milk fat for the food processing industry
Uelzena produces milk powder, fats and sweetened condensed milk for chocolate, ice cream and baking companies.
The company supplies low-heat and medium-heat skimmed milk powder for chocolate and confectionery products. All milk powder variations are characterised by a balanced flavour.
High-quality skimmed milk powders can be created using different variables, including degree of denaturation, solubility parameters, low dusting properties, particle sizes and mixing behaviour.
Fractionated butterfat and milk fat compounds
Uelzena manufactures special milk fat products using fractionation technology to separate hard stearins from soft or liquid oleins. Individual fractions can be recombined into different products.
The company works according to client specifications, including defined melting points, degrees of hardness and certain melting behaviour.
Deodoration allows the removal of colour and, if required, taste from butter, resulting in white fat for light crèmes and white or fruit-filled cream candies and chocolates.
Fats with a bland taste can be mixed with nuts, brittle or flavourings, and reducing cholesterol is also possible.
Uelzena uses special technologies to customise milk fat products. Confectionery manufacturers can order fat profiles, which deliver excellent texture and a full-bodied, creamy taste.
Fats with prolonged solidity for high-quality chocolate
Uelzena offers pumpable butter that does not need to be warmed prior to processing. A liquid cream mix for the production of confectionery items with swirled fruits is suitable for producers of hard candy.
Fats with prolonged solidity that melt only at a precisely defined temperature are suitable for chocolate companies.
Cream products and condensed milk for food processing
Uelzena’s subsidiary company, Warmsener Spezialitäten, produces sweetened condensed milk, which is available with various fat levels.
The production process ensures excellent dispersal of lactose and perfect crystallisation of the product. Viscosity parameters can be adjusted and powders and other ingredients can be added.
The company specialises in cream products for the delicatessen industry, as well as fat compounds for the bakery industry.
Contract spray drying and milk fat processing
Uelzena provides the drying of natural colours and flavours as well as vitamins, minerals, vegetable extracts, spices and additives. Highly susceptible products, suspensions and emulsions are processed into spray-dried ingredients.
The company provides contract processing of butter and anhydrous milk fat, as well as contract fractionation or deodoration of milk fat.
Certifications and quality management
Safety and quality are top priorities for Uelzena. The company holds all necessary certifications ranging from ISO: 9001 and IFS up to organic, kosher and halal productions.
The standard certifications are frequently complemented by demanding customer audits. Production is strictly monitored through defined quality management processes assisted by several specialised in-house laboratories and a certified sensory panel.
