New Solutions for Going PHO Free26 Jul 2017 Loders Croklaan presented various applications of their Sanstrans ingredient, including a new puff pastry product with their Sanstrans Roll Rite Puff, which is free from trans fat. Harold Kaizer of IOI Loders Croklaan says: “The trend has been towards the removal of trans fat, which will occur in June 2018. What we have done is converted much of our portfolio line to trans free shortenings. We deliver shortenings for different functionality and applications; whether bakery or confectionery.” Sanstrans Roll Rite Puff has been created to replace partially hydrogenated vegetable oils in this application. He noted that some of the challenges include that you need to create a product that has good flexibility, good machinability within the process. “Puff pastry is an application where you use the shortening to laminate the dough layers and the lamination shortening has to be spread thinly, so that you get the flaky appearance. It has to give you the consistency, so that you can build these layers and it gives you good height. These products are not waxy and don’t have a lot of palate cling,” he adds.
