Palsgaard® drawing for a $25 gift card at this event!

Imagine the requirements of the unique cake emulsifier possessing all the desired properties highly valued by the cake pre-mix producers, the cake industry and the end users:

  • A fast and efficient product with a high tolerance to difficult ingredients such as egg powder, cocoa and oil – in other words a very versatile and robust cake emulsifier
  • A smart emulsifier composition which would open up the possibility to create cakes with lower amounts of saturated fats and at the same time result in a shorter list of ingredients
  • A cake emulsifier which could facilitate the production of almost all types of cakes by recipe engineering and result in high quality cakes even with an improved cost in use calculations
  • Palsgaard® has matched these requirements by developing and fine-tuning a cake emulsifier which more than meets these demands.

Meet the cake doctor, Carlos Fajardo Centeno for this 30-minute presentation.  Discover how to achieve superior aeration, batter-stability, improved cake volume and texture, prolong shelf-life and cost reductions in cake premixes. For more information visit us online: www.palsgaard.com
