Bunge Loders Croklaan is launching its new, next-generation, liquid margarine: Delica Pro Gold. The plant-based, clean-label margarine for artisanal and industrial bakeries will be featured for the first time at IBA in Munich (hall A4, booth 190) from 15 to 20 September 2018.
Delica Pro Gold is a liquid, non-hydrogenated margarine without E-numbers and contains no artificial colours or flavours. This innovative fat formula has exceptional functionality, according to Bunge Loders Croklaan.
“The real challenge was to create a liquid margarine without emulsifiers,” explains Bernd Brinkmann, Innovation Director EMEA. “We overcame this challenge by adapting the formulation with a virgin oil mixture with high emulsifying properties combined with a new production process.”
Delica Pro Gold is low in saturated fatty acids and high in functionality. The formulation is based on a precisely balanced blend of plant-based oils, including a mix of virgin oils of wheat germ, corn, and linseed. The product has a nutritional profile with a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids and is a natural source of vitamin E. Moreover, the emulsion grants a calorie reduction of 20 % in a 1:1 replacement of conventional oils and fats, tapping into the health trend of lowering calorie intake.
