Explore new technical solutions in sweet baked goods thanks to a unique functional carbohydrate made from sugar

Glazings and icings on bakery products provide the sweet sensation and the visual appeal consumers love. But what if your glazing could do more? What if a small change in your recipe could help you improve the overall quality of your product or even extend your product's shelf life?

In this free webinar we will take a closer look on the production of bakery glazings and icings with BENEO's functional carbohydrate Palatinoseâ„¢ (isomaltulose). Extensive research at BENEO on fresh packed donuts has shown that the (partial) replacement of sucrose with Palatinoseâ„¢ in glazings leads to a significant shelf life extension. Further test trials have also revealed remarkable improvements in the quality of the glaze in frozen donuts after defrosting.

During our session we will explain how to achieve this considerable increase to shelf life by controlling the water migration between the donut and the glazing. An in-depth look at the preparation of glazings with Palatinoseâ„¢ will give practical guidance for your manufacturing process. In addition, we will examine further benefits of Palatinoseâ„¢ when used in glazings and icing of both fresh and frozen packed donuts - from reduced stickiness to better taste and enhanced visual appeal.

Come and join us for our free webinar to learn more about a unique functional carbohydrate made from sugar and its technical characteristics in bakery glazings and icings. The session will be presented by Katja Reichenbach and Annick Van Den Heuvel from BENEO, one of the leading manufacturers of functional carbohydrates.
