Emulsifiers for bakery margarines
Emulsifiers for cake margarine
Cake margarine is a special type of margarine specifically designed to incorporate air, securing stability in the final product. A common problem is that cakes can end up too heavy, lacking in volume.
We can help you create a highly functional margarine with the qualities you desire, through the use of emulsifiers such as Palsgaard® DMG 1388 together with an optimal fat composition.
The purpose of a cake margarine is to provide:
- High volume in the baked cake
- Good, homogenous crumb structure
- Soft and delicious cake
In order to obtain this, it is crucial that the margarine has a very short structure. This can be achieved by using the right type of oils combined with the right process conditions and tempering of the margarines - as well as the right emulsifier.
Let us help you to optimize your cake margarine
At Palsgaard we can optimize your emulsifier and fat composition in our pilot plants and recommend any adjustments to your processing equipment. We know how emulsifiers work in cake systems and have a focus on:
- Increasing the creaminess of the margarine, so that it is easier to incorporate more air and increase fat distribution in the batter
- Increasing the viscosity of the batter so that more air can be retained inside
- Protecting the air bubbles so that expansion during baking will occur
- Ensuring a high number of small air bubbles so that the crumb structure is homogenous
