Loders Croklaan

Innovation, sustainability, and going the extra mile are key strengths and have been a hallmark of IOI Loders Croklaan for generations. Our work began in the 1800s with two distinct companies: the Dutch Crok & Laan and the British Loders & Nucoline, both successful in vegetable oils and fats. Unilever acquired Crok & Laan in 1970 and merged it with its own subsidiary Loders & Nucoline, and Loders Croklaan was established. The company was sold in 2002 to the Malaysian IOI Group, active in palm oil plantations, oleo chemicals, real estate development, and downstream manufacturing.

Today, IOI Loders Croklaan focuses on palm oil lipid solutions and is renowned for technological breakthroughs. With state-of-the-art various processes such as fractionation, interesterification, emulsification, IOI Loders Croklaan is well positioned to deliver unique functionality and value to the end product. In 2010 we opened a state-of-the-art refinery in Rotterdam, which is the world’s first large-scale refinery to use the process of enzymatic interesterification.

New solution for lowering saturated fat

IOI Loders Croklaan is launching a new saturated fat-lowering solution called Presdough. “Presdough is a shea-based shortening fat which lowers saturated fats in an application like puff pastry, which is a really sensitive application – it’s really hard to get the right puff, to get the right texture, the crispiness,” says Renee Boerefijn. The company is very proud to have achieved such a dramatic lowering of saturated fats as it wants to help customers in every possible way and bring them alternatives to palm oil going forward.

New Solutions for Going PHO Free

Loders Croklaan presented various applications of their Sanstrans ingredient, including a new puff pastry product with their Sanstrans Roll Rite Puff, which is free from trans fat. Harold Kaizer of IOI Loders Croklaan says: “The trend has been towards the removal of trans fat, which will occur in June 2018. What we have done is converted much of our portfolio line to trans free shortenings. We deliver shortenings for different functionality and applications; whether bakery or confectionery.” Sanstrans Roll Rite Puff has been created to replace partially hydrogenated vegetable oils in this application. He noted that some of the challenges include that you need to create a product that has good flexibility, good machinability within the process.
