Due to its emulsifying properties and neutral taste Heliaflor® is very suitable as a product base for plant spreads and pasties. The excellent fat and water binding properties of Heliaflor® allow for systematic control of consistency which make the finished products easy to spread.
Using the results of a scientific study at University of Applied Sciences Albstadt-Sigmaringen and in cooperation with customers we were able to create recipes for vegan spreads. If you would like to try them for yourself please find them under category “Recipes”. Of course you can change or add used spices according to desired flavor. For a mediterranean taste herbs as rosemary and thyme as well as dried tomatoes and olives can be used as ingredients. To achieve an equal colouring addition of lemon juice or vinegar is recommended.
Basically both types of Heliaflor® are suitable for this application field. Heliaflor® 45 provides a more spicy taste than Heliaflor® 55. Heliaflor® 55 is more suitable for products which original taste should be better appreciated.
