A new dairy fat replacer from Gum Technology was recently formulated to mimic fatty textures in dairy products. Coyote Brand Stabilizer Dairy Fat Replacer was introduced in October as a fat replacer designed to interact with the milk proteins present in dairy products. Coyote Brand Stabilizer Dairy Fat Replacer contains cellulose gel (microcrystalline cellulose), konjac, sodium alginate, and xanthan and contains soluble and insoluble fiber. In low concentrations, the Coyote Brand Dairy Fat Replacer is ideal in milkshakes. In higher concentrations, it is ideally suited for mousse, whipped cream, custards and creamy sauces. The replacer also provides a high level of moisture binding capacity, which extends shelf life by reducing staling and syneresis. In frozen snacks, it can be used to bind up moisture to retard the growth of ice crystals and reduce their size.

Kerry

Each season, Kerry Sweet monitors frozen dessert trends and consumer flavor preferences. Here’s a list of trends Kerry sees influencing ice cream flavors:
  • Home-Style Flavors- Comfort food remains on the “in-style” list. Consumers are seeking more baked, home-style flavors that bring back memories of mom’s warm kitchen and ‘fresh-out-of-the-oven’ treats. Look for ice cream and frozen desserts incorporating bits of sugar cookies, rich chocolate fudge cake pieces, gooey caramel and desserts featuring nuts.
  • Sweet-Spice Flavors- Americans crave foods packing a big taste punch. Think dark chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, brown-sugar vanilla and citrus zest.
  • Candied-Coated Nuts- Sweet-salty flavor combination is getting rave reviews in the frozen dessert category, including combinations such as walnut toffee crunch, salty-butter caramel pecans and honey-coated almonds.
  • Ethnic Flavors- Consumer demand internationally inspired seasonal dessert flavors like moist coconut cakes from Asia, candied figs reminiscent of Spain and Portugal, toffee pudding from the United Kingdom and spicy-sweet dark chocolate from Latin America.
