GELITA RTE-ICE The Most Innovative Product 2008

Food Ingredients South America (FISA) awarded GELITA with this desired title for its unique ingredient for ice cream toppings.

The Food Ingredients South America (FISA) Committee have declared the product GELITA® RTE-ICE as the most innovative products at the recent trade fair in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

After being within the three finalists in 2006 with GELITA® Instant Gel Schoko and 2007 with GELITA® Extra Crunch, GELITA® RTE-ICE this year made it right to the top and won the desired “Oscar” of the food ingredient industry.

GELITA® RTE-ICE is a specially developed ingredient for the production of jelly texture coatings for ice cream .The ingredient is an easy processing thermo-reversible top that freezes less than a minute at ambient temperature, which provides a top with smooth surface for ice cream on stick.

For the final consumer, the topping offers the advantages of not having fat and being low caloric, causing a unique feeling in the mouth, because it combines the softness of the jelly top with the ice-cream texture.
