Food fibres for frozen food

JELU cellulose and food fibres can reduce the formation of ice crystals in frozen products.

JELU food fibres can reduce the formation of ice crystals in frozen products.

With frozen foods such as frozen pizza, microwave meals and convenience food, JELUCEL® food fibres reduce the formation of ice crystals, shorten the time needed for freezing and thawing and diminish the exudation of ingredients. In addition, depending on the end product, further functional properties take effect:

Frozen pizza

  • Freezing and thawing stability is improved
  • Dough volume and dough yield are improved
  • Moisture dispersant effect is improved

Microwave meals

  • Uniform heating of product because of homogenous moisture distribution
  • Fibre content is increased
The individual applications must comply with the food regulations of the respective country in which the end products are marketed, and must in particular cases be evaluated by experts.
