However, the analyses by QSI, a Tentamus company, revealed that more than a quarter of the products from shops contain undeclared extraneous sugars.

Besides, micro-level nutrients present in cheese concentrates such as water soluble and fat soluble vitamins, boost the value of foods and act as health boosters. This is resulting in the rising usage of cheese concentrate in food products as a flavouring ingredient as well as a supporting nutritious ingredient.
