rich creamy fillings without the cream
Posted in: Opinion
Many rich creamy fillings can be formulated with fractionated palm oil. Not easy to find in the USA thanks to some uninformed 'experts'. Palm Oil is 50% saturated with the same triglycerides as cocoa butter, but in different proportions. Stearic Fatty Acid which makes up a part of the saturated fatty acid content is not absorbed by the body, which in turn raises some interesting questions about its calorie content per gram.Because it is fractionated, there is no risk of trans fatty acids.These fats can have a cooling effect like coconut fat, or a soft creamy texture.Croklaan, AAK or Britannia Food Ingredients in the UK could supply these fats. I am an independent consultant with 47 years in the chocolate confectionery industry & would be glad to work with you on this.RegardsChris TaylorI live in Tampa Bay - so I understand the issues.
