Manufacturers of baked products are now able to benefit from the outstanding functionality and taste profile offered by Ultralec(TM), the award-winning de-oiled ultrafiltered lecithin from ADM. Used as a compound ingredient and particularly suitable for tackling the problems of fat substitution and high-volume production, Ultralec is exceptionally clean and pure. This makes it ideal for manufacturers of flavour-sensitive bakery applications such as croissants and simple rolls.In almost all baked products, Ultralec is a highly functional release agent and emulsifier. These qualities ensure good, even mixing of the recipe components and facilitate dough handling, extrusion, sheeting and release from processing equipment.Ultralec increases water retention and reduce shrinkage and greasiness in cakes, pastries, pies and doughnuts, improving texture and structure. This is particularly important in reduced-fat applications, where the removal of fat can have a detrimental effect on the mouthfeel of the finished product. Baked goods containing Ultralec lecithin also tend to possess a better crumb structure, which prevents the sinking of other particles such as fruit pieces.By avoiding the use of acetone during production, ADM has created a lecithin which is almost unrivalled in the purity of its taste. The Ultralec range of lecithins benefit from ADM's innovative ultrafiltration method which removes the triglycerides let through in more traditional filtering processes.ADM is a leading global supplier of soya lecithins, soya proteins and other high-quality food ingredients such as xanthan gum.
