Danish pastries, croissants and puff pastry typically contain between 16 and 300 layers of plasticized margarine. Everything has to be in a single, homogenous layer without the margarine breaking, becoming greasy or too elastic, and without breaks or cracks in the dough, while simultaneously allowing controlled expansion during baking.
Successful production demands margarine with sufficient plasticity and a surface dry enough to handle mechanical treatment during production. And that's where you can rely on Palsgaard.
A wide range of emulsifiers for plasticized margarine
Emulsifiers such as Palsgaard® 1302 maintain dry/non-greasy surfaces for easy-to-handle margarines while ensuring a high, homogenous lift in your baked goods. The result is a delicious baked product.
Make puff pastry with less than 80% fat
Palsgaard has developed a new range of emulsifiers, including Palsgaard® 1311 and Palsgaard® 1325, for 80%, 70%, 60% and 50% fat contents in Danish, croissant and puff pastry margarines without lecithin.
We'll help you to achieve:
a very stable emulsion that can't be broken during plastification or other working
excellent margarine plasticity
a homogenous layer of melted margarine in the dough during baking, guaranteeing homogenous, high lift
long shelf-life - both of the margarine and the baked goods
