Health & Nutrition

Vegetable oils & fats are an essential part of a healthy diet. Fat is -among others- an important source of energy for the body and facilitates the absorption of certain minerals and vitamins in the body.

In recent years, a lot of attention has been paid to "good fats": fats which are free from trans fatty acids, low in saturates and which assure an optimal balance between different essential fatty acids like Omega3 and Omega6.

Besides the well known nutritional aspects of a fat, also the strict control and mitigation of contaminants is a crucial point to focus on.

 

On the other hand, fats need to have the right functional properties during and after production in order to create delicious food products.

Crystallization speed, melting behavior, visual appearance and end texture are some of the features which are determined primarily by the fat.

In the development of fats for different applications, all aspects - nutrition, health and functionality - are taken into account in order to provide the best solution for a given application.

We apply our in-depth experience of fats also in the creation of fillings and compounds and combine this with a thorough knowledge of other ingredients.

In this area, we have several solutions for challenging market demands such as organic, vegan, sugar and lactose reduced fillings & chocolates.
