Fat-replacement system in Europe
A new one-to-one bakery fat-replacement system developed by Cargill's texturizing-solutions business reduces the fat content of a range of baked goods by 10-50 per cent.

A carbohydrate-based fat-replacement system, it achieves the full functional and sensory characteristics of traditionally baked goods, while significantly reducing their fat content. TexDesign is easy to incorporate as a dry mix or cream to replace margarine or oil in a current recipe without the need to modify existing production methods, Cargill says.
