Who are the primary customers of Denali Ingredients?
Denali Ingredients is a commercial manufacturer of food ingredients. Most of our customers are dairy processors who produce their own brands as well as co-pack. We also work directly with brands and retailers, some with vertically integrated manufacturing capabilities. Our ingredients primarily find their way into ice cream and frozen treats, however, many are integrated into other food categories as well.
What does Denali Ingredients manufacture?
Denali manufactures baked inclusions, such as brownies and cheesecake, cookie doughs and bits, flakes and barks, liquid chip, variegates, liquid eggnog bases, flavor bases, fruit packs and purees. We also specialize in stabilizers and texture systems.
What is the difference between a cookie dough or bit and a baked item?
Cookie doughs & bits are cold extruded with ready-to-eat ingredients, such as a chocolate chip cookie dough. Our baked inclusions are made from a batter which is baked in our continuous oven before being diced and frozen. Examples of these include baked brownies and cheesecake.

What is a textured variegate?
Textured variegates are fat-based, often with textured crumbs in them. They set up firm in an ice cream and have some crunch from the crumbs. Learn more about all of our variegates here.
