Focus on raw material substitution and economical recipes
Saturday, 25 June, 2022, 14 : 00 PM [IST]
Two years of pandemic have caused major economic problems around the world. But instead of the markets recovering, high inflation, exploding energy costs and volatile market and price developments in the raw materials markets have greatly aggravated the situation. These factors are having a huge effect on consumer purchasing power. According to Innova Market Insights, 40 per cent of consumers around the world say that their disposable income has declined during the pandemic. Higher inflation will continue to burden household budgets, so the costs and affordability of food products will remain a growing problem.

Hydrosol supports the food industry with various solutions that help ensure continued sufficient food supplies at affordable prices. The company focuses on replacing raw materials and developing economical recipes. “Raw material substitution is a core topic right now,” explains Hydrosol product manager Katharina Schäfer. “Locust beangum, which is used in many stabilising systems, is one example. As of today it has gone up in price by a factor of eight. In order to compensate for this increase, our R&D department has been researching alternative solutions intensively for some time now.”

Replacing ingredients
Through the intelligent combination of various hydrocolloids, expensive raw materials can be reduced or even entirely replaced. Technical and technological changes also result in new recipes for the production of affordable foods, be they dairy and deli or meat and sausage products. “We’ve identified the cost drivers in many recipes, and replaced them with more economical alternatives. This is the case both for functional ingredients and for individual ingredients,” reports Schäfer. “For example, in particularly economical processed cheese preparations the cheese content is reduced and the butter replaced by vegetable fat. In milk drinks, we replace the milk with whey. Our goal is to create products of good quality with the right value for money.”

Among the company’s systems for especially economical products is Stabisol JOC 2 for making fermented whey desserts. A clever combination of ingredients gives the final product the same creamy texture as yogurt. Thanks to the flexible system, the amount and type of whey can be varied, since both sweet and acid whey can be used. Both are by-products of cheese and quark manufacture. Another idea is the Hydrobest Drink range of all-in compounds, which simplify the production of delicious milk mixed beverages. There are also economical formulations for quark, cream cheese and processed cheese preparations, cooking cream and vegetable-based whipping creams in various flavours. In the deli category, Hydrosol offers interesting solutions for fat-reduced salat dressings, spreadable sandwich creams with butter taste, and ketchup and similar red sauces.
