The fruit texture principle – full enjoyment for beverages with no added sugar

The sugar content of juice based beverages provides not only sweetness but also influences the multi-sensory experience of the beverages. Reducing or removing added sugar results in a change of the overall perception. With a combination of a specifically designed Pectin and a multi-functional citrus fibre fromthe Herbstreith & Fox Group, the multi-sensory profile of a low sugar beverage can be optimised to match the consumers’ expectations.

H&F pectins for yoghurt fruit preparations with low sugar content

To enable the fruit preparations to be used in mass production, the product is stabilised to achieve specific rheological properties. Pectin is primarily used to ensure that fruit pieces are distributed evenly throughout the preparation. As a fruit-derived hydrocolloid, pectin creates a texture with optimum sensory properties and a low boiling viscosity, which ensures that the fruit pieces keep their shape as much as possible. H&F offers two pectins for low sugar yoghurt fruit products.

H&F Pectins for Bread Improvement

Pectins are well-known especially as gelling agent in jams or confectionery. However, it is possible to use them by far more versatile. High ester pectins such as Pectin Classic CB 202 which is developed for this application, are very well suited as an  alternative to common bread improvers. With the addition of these pectins the doughs become softer and smoother. As a consequence of the improved tolerance of the dough it is possible to manufacture breads with higher volume. This effect also supports improving the freeze-thaw stability of dough pieces.

H&F Pectins improve the rheological properties of fruit preparations for yoghurt

The main function of a stabilising system is to increase the viscosity of the fruit preparations to the point that floating of the fruits during processing is minimised and an even fruit distribution in the container is guaranteed. Yoghurt fruit preparations are often stabilised with starch, e.g. modified starch E 1422, in the fruit processing industry.

Pectin Amid AF 005-N for Calorie-Reduced Preserves and Fruit Spreads

Preserves and fruit spreads declared as „calorie-reduced“ have at least 30 % less calories than traditional products of the same kind. This reduction in calorific value is usually reached by reducing the sugar content in the recipe. This means, for example, for a traditional preserve “extra” with a total sugar content of 60 % the calorie-reduced alternative would have a total sugar content of not more than 42 %.
