Consumers don't eat to simply satisfy their appetites. They're looking for benefits, other than satiating their hunger. Today's consumers are savvy and have adopted a new approach to food, preferring natural, wholesome, and healthy foods. And, of course, these improved foods still have to exhibit the same texture, convenience, and great taste of their "less than healthy" counterparts.
The challenge: Formulate healthier food products without compromising taste, quality, and overall satisfaction.
The solution: GELITA® Gelatine
The Unrivaled Advantages of GELITA® Gelatine
Although many other ingredients have tried to match gelatine's extraordinary capabilities, none have come close to encompassing the special characteristics and capabilities of gelatine.
Gelatine, a safe ingredient, has been around for hundreds of years. Over time, many cultures have considered gelatine a valuable source of protein, as well as a healthy and beneficial food - particularly for skin, hair, nails, and joints. Today, we know that gelatine offers more than just protein enhancement.
GELITA Gelatine Offers:
- Reduced (or even eliminated) fat and sugar
- Fewer calories
- Valuable calories (as they originate from protein rather than fat or sugar)
- Lower Glycemic index
Gelatine is a hydrocolloid with the ability to bind water, allowing it to be used for gelling, thickening, and stabilizing foods. This property allows formulators to decrease amounts of sugary products for binding by replacing with water and gelatine. Gelatine also forms a thermo-reversible gel that melts in the mouth, creating that smooth and unique mouth feeling...something that no other hydrocolloid can duplicate.
GELITA Gelatine Features Valuable Properties:
- Contains no preservatives
- Easily digestible
- Zero carbohydrates
A Market on the Move...and GELITA is big on innovation
The food industry is versatile and continuously evolving. Innovation is key in maintaining a competitive advantage. GELITA's product development lab accepts this challenge and helps customers create trend-setting consumer product concepts. Sometimes these innovations are based on the lab's own initiative. Often, though, the innovations are the result of close and confidential collaborations with individual customers. This conserves your internal resources and provides an external view and unbiased contributions from GELITA's Food Applications Lab.
