The whey protein cream has been found to found to function as a source of protein in the analogue cheese and provide emulsification properties to the other constituent ingredients incorporated into the analogue cheese composition. Accordingly, in some formulations, the analogue cheese composition may include a comparatively low amount of casein protein, with the whey protein cream functionally compensating for the removed casein protein.
