article image Advances in emulsifiers for bakery

Palsgaard presented cake mix concepts at IFT 2017 made with sustainably sourced emulsifiers that are PHO-free. Rosa Regalado of Palsgaard explains: “A lot of the work that we have been doing is in the bakery sector. We have a unique extrusion technology. The base of that is that we have rice starch as a carrier and then we have the emulsifier fully activated surrounding the surface of the starch. This is an emulsifier in powder form that is ready to use and fully activated, but can just blend it with your dry ingredients. That makes it perfect for cake mixes, where we have a concept where all the customer has to do is add oil, water and eggs.” She stressed that the company has also made sure that these concepts are in compliance with the regulation around PHOs and are also free from saturated fats.
