DSM has announced the launch of its 'Let's cake together' concept. This 'toolkit' combines three clean label ingredients from DSM: CakeZyme, Etenia and the taste potentiator Delite.
The toolkit allows manufacturers to respond to the key trends currently driving the cake market: indulgence, reduced fat and saturates and reduced costs. When used together, these ingredients offer a flexible, clean-label solution to manufacturers and consumers.
Each ingredient has its individual advantages when used in cakes. CakeZyme, a microbial phospholipase, enables manufacturers to use up to 20% less egg in their recipes, resulting in an extended shelf life, better texture and volume. Etenia, a functional potato starch product is added to replace up to 30% of fat content in cakes, while still retaining the creaminess and rich mouthfeel of its full-fat counterparts. Delite, the yeast-based taste potentiator, enhances the 'buttery' taste, increases moistness and adds creaminess to bakery products.
José Mastenbroek, global launch manager from DSM's Enzymes Business Unit, confirms: "The 'Let's cake together' concept has successfully responded to the huge market demand for indulgent and great-tasting low-fat products.
"Manufacturers can now easily develop 'better-for-you' cakes in a cost-effective way. More importantly, consumers can still indulge in delicious cakes without feeling guilty."
