Milk. The taste of Kinder.
Milk is one of the ingredients that gives Kinder products the taste you love, that’s why we take so much care in getting it just right.
Our quality Guarantee
Milk is a key ingredient in all Kinder products. Thus, we only use milk from carefully selected suppliers, consistently guaranteeing the milk’s taste, quality, and safety. When selecting suppliers our requirements are very strict and only around 30 dairies in the world have become Kinder long-lasting partners.
To transform the liquid milk into powdered milk we take an additional step, where a careful hot air treatment allows most of the water content to evaporate. The entire process is completed within 48 hours of the milk’s arrival to the dairies, which allows us to maintain its taste and sensory characteristics. There are also other dairy products and milk derivates, such as anhydrous milk fat, whey, and milk protein, that are also used to make Kinder’s product taste so unique.
Other dairy products
Anhydrous milk fat
Anhydrous milk fat is made from the cream that is separated from fresh milk. The cream is first pasteurized and then centrifuged to be transformed into butter. It is an ideal ingredient in the making of chocolates, fillings, and other confectionery products. Its creamy consistency and delicate flavour enhance products’ taste and smoothness.
Whey is a component of cow’s milk deriving from fresh cheese-making process. It is a highly appreciated ingredient, thanks to its special flavour and aroma.
There are two types of milk protein: caseins and whey. Either skim milk or whey, depending on the product desired, is passed through special filters that catch the proteins and create a "protein concentrate", which is then dried. We use small quantities of milk protein in Kinder Joy and Kinder Bueno White.
