Share our expertise in liquid margarine

Liquid frying margarine appeals to consumers because it's easy to use and, with its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, has a healthier profile than traditional frying margarine. And its superior frying performance make it a great alternative to liquid oil, too.

Because it's used in many ways, consumers place plenty of demands on its performance –  demands that present serious challenges for margarine manufacturers.

Palsgaard has been working with liquid margarine as a concept well before it became a consumer product, so we're truly experts in this area.

Using a combination of emulsifiers and oil absorbers, we can solve just about any challenge you may face, including:

  • Stability
  • Oiling out
  • Viscosity
  • Splattering

Emulsifier applications and functionalities in frying margarines

Emulsifiers have different functionalities in margarines and often complement each other, leading to improved product quality:

  • Mono- and diglycerides (E471) lower the interfacial tension in the water-in-oil emulsion, increase the viscosity of the emulsion so that the tendency to phase reversion is reduced, and prevent the agglomeration of the water droplets. Mixing monoglycerides with different HLB values will create a more stable margarine with good anti-spattering behaviour
  • Citrem, Citric acid esters of mono and diglycerides of fatty acids (E472c) such as Palsgaard® Citrem 3203 offer an allergen-free alternative to lecithin with good emulsification and anti-spattering behaviour, and can be used in all-purpose margarines also
  • Lecithin, (E322) is an emulsifier well-suited for frying margarine ensuring less spattering, a good foam and an even browning effect. With both a lipophile and hydrophile part, lecithin helps provide the right balance between stability and instability in the emulsion
  • Crystal promoters such as Palsgaard® 6111 and Palsgaard® 6118 create the crystal network, giving the oil-absorbing effect that will prevent oiling out and improve the viscosity of the liquid margarine
