In response to increasing government and retailer pressure to offer healthier bakery options, Macphie is reducing the levels of sugar, hydrogenated fat and additives in its ingredients. It has also introduced a range of non-hydrogenated dairy cream alternatives, including versions of its existing brands Mactop and GlenDelight.
Dr Neil Carr, Macphie product development manager, says: "Hydrogenated fat has increasingly been hitting the headlines. We are passionate about offering consumers healthier choices, however we will not compromise on the taste. Over the past two years our development team has been tackling the issue of removing hydrogenated fat from our branded food ingredients, and the cream alternatives were the most challenging. This launch marks a significant breakthrough."
