Reducing-Fat-in-Cheesecake

If Pinterest is any indication, decadent Asian-style cheesecake is taking over dessert tables across America. The recipe has been pinned more than 200,000 times!

Unlike traditional cheesecake, it can be enjoyed warm or cold. Its mouthfeel is also unique, with a fluffy, souffle-like texture that still maintains a rich, creamy goodness.

There’s been a lot of online chatter about the high fat and calorie content found in the delectable dish, with some topping out at 80 grams of fat and 1,000 calories or more. Innovative food manufacturers have found a way to replicate this popular dessert and reduce the use of cream cheese by 25% by incorporating Grande Bravo® functional whey protein in their formulations — all while maintaining and even improving flavor and mouthfeel.

Wondering how easily the incorporation of whey protein can be applied? See how it’s done in our latest video, “Asian Style Cheesecake with Grande Bravo.” You’ll see step-by-step how easy it is to include whey protein in a formulation as well as the outstanding results.
