Chocolate Protector Presented at IFT

At this year’s IFT, Vitiva of Slovenia will present a natural solution for keeping chocolate and chocolate products fresh for an extended period of time. Inolens® 12 is an all-natural, allergen-free ingredient offered as a beneficial processing aid to protect chocolate and other confectionery products, such as praline or toffee sauces, with no change in taste or aroma.

Oxidation and rancidity developments have been recognized as leading causes of deterioration in confectionery products during storage. The two critical factors of chocolate that determine their susceptibility to oxidation are the fat content and storage temperature. Dark chocolate holds a rich source of natural antioxidants that reduce the deterioration process, but milk chocolate, white chocolate, toffee sauce and other high-fat confectionary products are more prone to rancidity.

“Our customers and IFT visitors are invited to the Vitiva - PLThomas booth #970 to taste our delicious, hand-made chocolate pralines containing our oxidative protector Inolens® 12,” says Ohad Cohen, CEO of Vitiva. “It has been successfully utilized in chocolate pralines, extending their shelf life by 30% without influencing organoleptic characteristics of the product. These chocolate pralines serve as an excellent example of Vitiva’s innovative solutions.”
Inolens® 12 is the natural alternative for the synthetic antioxidants that are commonly used as processing aids in chocolates and confectionery products. It is a ready-to-use formulation, easily blending with complementary ingredients in the product such as cocoa powder, sugar, powdered milk and various fats. Confectionery products with nut pieces are also highly prone to oxidation and Inolens® 12 protects these ingredients equally well.

Vitiva is a dynamic, fast-growing nutraceuticals company offering advanced, application-specific formulations of natural extracts with antioxidative properties, such as AquaRox®, VivOX® and SyneROX. In addition, a full range of reduced-odor rosemary extracts, INOLENS®, is available in a wide range of concentrations. These pure extracts are soluble in oil or water and are available in powder and liquid forms.
