Fats are essential for a diet. But how much fat is good for human health? The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends a fat intake of 20-35 energy percent (E%) for adults. Fat intake in many Western countries, however, exceeds these recommendations. Since it is difficult for people to implement the diet recommendations in their daily life, using fat replacers in food processing for fat reduction is gaining in importance.
Humectants such as our powdered cellulose JELUCEL® are used in the food industry to optimise and stabilise product properties. Intermediate moisture foods remain fresh for longer and are preserved.
Anti-caking agents such as JELUCEL® cellulose are indispensable in the food industry. They are used as anti-sticking agents for confectionery, as anti-clumping agents in cheese processing and as free-flow agents in the manufacture and processing of powdered foodstuffs. JELUCEL® is an organic anti-caking agent that consists of pure powdered cellulose.
