Creamer, also known as creamer, is a new product based on refined vegetable oil or hydrogenated vegetable oil and casein.
This product has a special role in food production and processing, and is also a modern food. Made from high-quality vegetable oils and casein, it is used in milk powder, coffee, cereals, seasonings and related products. Although it can improve the taste of food, it contains a lot of harmful substances.
The non-dairy cream can improve the internal structure of the food, enhance the flavor and fat, make the mouth feel fine, and the lubrication is thick. Therefore, it is a good companion for coffee products. It can be used for instant cereals, cakes, biscuits, etc., to make the cake tissue delicate and improve elasticity; It can improve the crispness and is not easy to get oil. The vegetable fat is quick-dissolving, and the flavor is similar to “milk”. It can replace the milk powder or reduce the amount of milk in food processing, thus reducing the production cost while maintaining the quality of the product.
Recent studies in human health have shown that partial hydrogenation of vegetable oils is actually a process of turning unsaturated fatty acids in vegetable oils into saturated or semi-saturated states, which produces trans fatty acids that increase the density of low-density lipoproteins in human blood. , high-density lipoprotein decreased, induced hardening of the arteries, increased risk of heart disease, cerebrovascular accidents. However, all hydrogenation does not produce trans fatty acids, and the current process of total hydrogenation is very mature. In the recent revision of the composition of the food pyramid, the United States has clearly proposed to pay attention to the problem of trans-fatty acids, requiring manufacturers to indicate the content of trans-fatty acids in the products.
To this end, oil manufacturers have also developed new hydrogenation technology, which does not produce trans fatty acids during hydrogenation, and has been used to replace the original non-fatty acid-containing creamer on some products. The World Health Organization and European and American countries have made recommendations and regulations on the daily safety limit (2 grams) and the proportion of food containing trans fatty acids (1%)
