Flaked fat

BAKERY APPLICATIONS

  • Sponge and Christmas Puddings
  • Dumplings
Akoflake can be used as an alternative where suet may have been used traditionally.  Akoflake is 100% vegetable oil which allows a clean and simple label declaration.

It can be added to the batter before cooking to give a desirable light and open texture.

  • Pizza Dough
Akoflake can be used in deep pan and thin & crispy pizza dough to enhance the flavour, texture and visual appearance to the baked product when incorporated into the dough before baking.
  • Pastry

When a flaky textured pastry is required, Akoflake can be added to the pastry dough before baking.

DRIED FOODS

  • Soups and Sauces
  • Gravies, Seasonings, Bouillons and Stocks
  • Cake Mixes

Fat can play an important role in the production of dried foods.  Added fat is often required in these product applications ranging between 3 and 15% of the total ingredients to be able to achieve a desirable mouth feel and texture in the finished product.

Boxed and liquid oils are not always suitable in such situations as the finished product must remain dry and retain it’s free flowing characteristics.  Akoflake is an ideal ingredient to use as it does not cause clumping or stickiness of the dry mix.

CONVENIENCE FOODS

  • Vegetarian Sausages
  • Vegetable Burgers
  • Low Fat Formed Meat and Fish Products

When producing these types of products, fat is needed to help bind the ingredients together and to enhance the texture and eating characteristics of the finished product.

Akoflake is suitable for these applications as it can be easily mixed and dispersed throughout the mix without having to worry about big lumps of fat being present. 

Our range of flaked fats is available with melting points ranging from 40°C to 65°C.
