New Cracker Application For TasteTech’s Encapsulation

New Cracker Application For TasteTech's Encapsulation

(PRWEB) February 16, 2005

TasteTech UK has developed the application of its controlled release (CR) microencapsulation technology to make it easier for cracker and savoury biscuit manufacturers to flavour their products.    

TasteTech’s unique CR-100 encapsulation system is recognised by food manufactures throughout the world as one of the most efficient and economic methods of flavouring their products. Commonly used for retaining the delicate flavours of sweet and savoury spices through high temperature baking, TasteTech’s new application for use in fast bake crackers and savoury biscuits has been developed to facilitate the growing market trend for flavoured crackers.

Using the CR-100 technology a hardened vegetable oil microfilm is formed around the flavouring which protects the flavour and ensures it is not released in the baking process until a desired temperature of 60-65oC is reached, encouraging flavour retention and resulting in a tastier product. By doing so it considerably reduces the amount of flavouring required as well as the cost involved in the baking process.

“Fast bake products can be very difficult to flavour,” says Roger Sinton, Managing Director of TasteTech. “Seasoning crackers and savoury biscuits is particularly awkward because they have large surface areas and are baked at high temperatures where steam evaporation and distillation of flavour often occurs. As a result cracker manufacturers have to over compensate the amount of flavour they use in the baking process to get the desired result. Our encapsulation process basically solves the problem of flavour retention and makes it really easy for manufacturers to bake-in any combination of flavour.”

TasteTech can encapsulate a variety of tasty flavourings for crackers including sun-dried tomato, cheese & onion and Mediterranean herb. Furthermore, as new flavourings are developed, TasteTech can engineer the CR mechanism to become activated by different changes of temperature, depending on the individual manufacturers baking process.
