Emulsifiers for retail mixes

    The ultimate success of your retail cake mix is in the hands of the consumer. Give them a consistently pleasurable preparation and eating experience and you will build loyalty and profits. And for most mixes, the key success factor is a high degree of tolerance.

    Emulpals® emulsifiers improve tolerance

    Tolerance is critical due to variations in storage conditions, raw materials (eggs of different sizes and quality; butter, margarine or oil)  mixing methods and specific baking conditions. Our innovative, powdered cake emulsifiers under the Emulpals® brand provide the superior tolerance required to meet these challenges - and let you add at least two years of outstanding aeration stability to each mix, too.

    A large number of additional consumer benefits can be targeted by using our whipping active cake emulsifiers:

    • a soft, resilient and regular crumb structure
    • a high degree of moistness
    • low fat and low calorie
    • use of healthy oils and zero trans fat
    • non-soy and non-palm
    • lean label – only one emulsifier (polyglycerol ester - E475) and a natural carrier
    • non-allergenic and non-GMO
    • sugar-free
    • plant-based origin
    • Kosher and Halal certification 


    What is an activated cake emulsifier?

    Palsgaard's powdered, whipping active cake emulsifiers, marketed under the Emulpals® and Palsgaard SA® brands are also known "Activated cake emulsifiers" - a term used to describe the instant properties of the emulsifier when added to the cake batter. The activation is achieved by placing the emulsifier on the surface of very small starch granules by means of a highly sophisticated extrusion process.

    The result is significant: One 15 kg carton has a surface area equal to 4 or 5 football fields. The effect is instant functionality, fast uptake and incorporation of air into the cake batter, leading to improved stability and superior cake quality.
