04 Apr 2017 --- Ulrick & Short is introducing luxury to lower fat foods with its new clean label starch fat replacer, Delyte 9. Responding to demand for effective ways to tackle obesity by reducing fat content across multiple food products, the company is debuting delyte 9, a solution that, it claims, enhances indulgence across multiple applications.

It’s a tapioca-based non-GM clean label starch used as a substitute ingredient for the majority of fats, including butter, oil, cream and milk solids, while at the same time enhancing the formulation with increased body and texture.

Applications include sauces, soups, ready meals and of course sweet applications, although it’s particularly valued in sauces as the starch binds water and helps to trap fat content within the sauce without altering its viscosity.

British company, Ulrick & Short considers itself a clean label specialist and has developed delyte 9 to reduce fat and calories, but also it can be used to co-texturize in its own right because of its innate stability. 

It also ticks the “gluten-free” label, is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and is dairy-free, according to the company.

Director, Adrian Short says the secret of fat replacement lies in achieving a balance between reducing the traffic light rating on fat content whilst maintaining the levels of mouthfeel, texture and taste associated with premium products. 

Too little fat and dairy products in particular will start to lose flavor, body and creaminess. As a starch it can be added to a process alongside dry ingredients and delyte 9 can be applied in ratios as small as 1-2 per cent in order to add body and creaminess to food products that require a luxury touch.
 
“Like Ulrick & Short’s other ingredients, the delyte range is designed to be neutral in application, maximizing flavor whilst minimizing change to taste or texture,” says Short.

“As well as supporting overall label simplification, delyte 9 can also help to forge a healthier traffic light classification; in use it reduces not just the fat content but calories too, thus making it the ideal choice to help meet nutritional targets. Offering hot, cold and frozen process tolerance, delyte 9 is allergen-free and highly functional.
 
“Low fat no longer means low expectations, and the potential health benefits of improving the nutritional profile of food cannot be questioned. Our extended range of delyte fat replacers brings the most comprehensive solution available on the market today and will undoubtedly help to underpin a shift towards lower fat, higher indulgence food products that will help in the ongoing fight against obesity.”
