Delica Pro Gold, the first clean label liquid margarine, to debut at IBA.
Bunge Loders Croklaan launches Delica Pro Gold, its new, next-gen liquid margarine.
Wormerveer, The Netherlands, 10 September 2018 – Bunge Loders Croklaan launches Delica Pro Gold, its new, next-gen liquid margarine. The plant-based, clean-label margarine for artisanal and industrial bakeries will be featured for the first time at IBA in Munich.
Natural and clean solution
Delica Pro Gold is a liquid, non-hydrogenated margarine without E-numbers and contains no artificial colors or flavors. This innovative fat formula has exceptional functionality.
“The real challenge was to create a liquid margarine without emulsifiers”, explains Bernd Brinkmann, Innovation Director EMEA of Bunge Loders Croklaan. “We overcame this challenge by adapting the formulation with a virgin oil mixture with high emulsifying properties combined with a new production process”.
Excellent nutritional profile
Delica Pro Gold is low in saturated fatty acids and high in functionality. The formulation is based on a precisely balanced blend of plant-based oils, including a mix of virgin oils of wheat germ, corn, and linseed. Delica Pro Gold has an outstanding nutritional profile with a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids and is a natural source of vitamin E. Moreover, the emulsion grants a calorie reduction of 20% in a 1:1 replacement of conventional oils and fats, tapping into the health trend of lowering calorie intake.
The best of both: wholesome and on-trend
The virgin oil content adds natural color to the baked product, without the need for additives. Consumers perceive this golden color as an indication of a product that is less processed, more natural and wholesome. Delica Pro Gold helps to increase a product’s volume and gives a homogeneous structure by improved aeration. This makes the structure of pound cakes, muffins and sponge cakes fluffier and lighter.
“Our technical experts work together with our customers to ensure that Delica Pro Gold yields the best results across all baking parameters and conditions to bring a sensational sensory experience”, adds Brinkmann. “As a result, it is ideal for both artisanal and industrial bakeries”.
Visitors to IBA are welcome to taste a variety of products with the innovative ingredient.
