As consumer demands continuously evolve, we're committed to ensuring our customers can deliver. That's why we're invested in speciality ingredient sourcing and product claims, from our farms to our plants. Below are the ingredient claims we can guarantee for our customers, varying by product, to help our customers deliver on cleaner labels.

Gluten Free

We offer certified gluten free products for our customers, which mandates that all applicable products contain 10ppm or less of gluten. Our qualifying production plants are certified and inspected annually to maintain our regulatory standing.


Halal certification is a voluntary process by which a credible Islamic organization certifies that a company's products can be lawfully consumed by Muslims. Many of our products can be certified as Halal.


All kosher milk ingredients must be derived from kosher animals. Kosher dairy products must not contain non-kosher additives or meat products or meat derivatives. Several of our manufacturing facilities are certified to produce kosher dairy ingredients.

Lactose Free

We offer Lactose Free certified ingredients so that those who are lactose intolerant can enjoy the benefits of dairy. Lactose Free certification guarantees lactose levels lower than 0.01 percent.


NAFTA-compliant ingredients are those produced in the United States, Canada and Mexico that are eligible to receive reduced or eliminated duty as specified by NAFTA. We work with regulatory agencies to determine this status for our customers.

Nothing Artificial

We offer a variety of cleaner label options for our customers looking to add "No Artificial Ingredients" to their labels. These "NOs" include:

  • No artificial colors / Natural colors only
  • No artificial flavors / Natural flavors only
  • No DSP or Sodium Phosphate
  • No Xantham gum
  • No PHO
  • No MSG
  • No Citric Acid
  • No Mono and Diglyceride
  • No Sorbic Acid
  • No Sodium Citrate

Our organic products follow USDA guidelines, perfect for customers developing products that are "Organic" or "Made with Organic Ingredients." With seven USDA National Organic Program (NOP) certified facilities, we lead the industry in organic dairy product production.


Our non-GMO products do not include any raw materials containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which are plants or animals whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Because of overlapping requirements, most non-GMO products are also certified as organic.


rBST is a growth hormone that some dairies use to boost milk production. We offer dairy ingredients that are certified rBST-free, ensuring they are made from milk of cows that have not been treated with rBST.

USDA Grading (A, AA)

USDA grading for dairy ingredients including butter and cheese takes into account many measurable attributes, including flavor, body and texture. We offer ingredients that are USDA graded AA and A, providing a credible quality claim for our customers' products.
