Rice-based Ingredient Helps Bakers Banish Trans Fats
California Natural Products Inc. helps food product formulators fight trans fats with its Bake-Trim rice-derived shortening replacer. Bake-Trim is a natural, organic compatible ingredient that confers saturated-fat like functionality, fat reduction, increased volume and shelf-life benefits. The patented product is a natural rice syrup solid that provides the functionality of trans and saturated fats in bakery items. Bake-Trim increases volume and improves structure in whole-wheat products, cakes, tortillas and nutrition bars even when the fat/emulsifier is removed. As a rice syrup solid, it’s easily incorporated with dry ingredients in a baking mix.
