Emulsifiers and stabilizers for soy milk

    Perceived as a healthier alternative to dairy milk, soy milk has been part of the Asian diet for centuries and is becoming increasingly popular in other parts of the world, too.

    Making soy milk convenient

    Soy milk has traditionally been produced in small batches in small shops and with a short shelf-life. Today's consumers, however, with their modern lifestyles, demand products with longer shelf-lives and which remain safe and stable during the entire storage period. As a result, manufacturers need to look for new production methods if they want to match today's market requirements.

    Today, UHT processing and aseptic filling have extended soy milk shelf-life at room temperature. However, for such products to consistently have the right mouth-feel and creaminess throughout their shelf-life, it's essential to use the right emulsifiers and stabilizers.

    Palsgaard has developed the integrated emulsifier and stabilizer system Palsgaard® RecMilk 122, which contains mono- and diglycerides and carrageenan. For soy chocolate milk containing particles that have to be suspended, Palsgaard® ChoMilk 173 and Palsgaard® RecMilk 131 should be used.
