Did you know you can have your cake and eat it?

Using a variety of AVEBE starches we can offer cake manufacturers some interesting solutions to reducing fat and drop calorie content in their products.

ELIANE™ Gel 100 is a clean-label potato starch which can be used with water to replace cream in desserts, cakes and other sweet treats.  It is also very cost effective helping to not only reduce fat, but it burns cost too, all without an E-Number added to the declaration.

AVEBE’s ETENIA Legato can also be used in cake mixes to reduce fat.  An introduction of just 0.8% can reduce up to 30% of the fat content, replacing it with zero calorie water!  This is achieved without any loss of viscosity in the batter phase and is again, 100% Clean Label.  The finished baked cake maintains excellent volume with regular structure- no loss of consumer appeal, 30% lose of fat!
