Brought to you by WACKER on 13th October 2017

Icings and frostings enhance the overall appearance of fine bakery products including their flavor, sweetness and texture. However, they usually contain large amounts of saturated fats, which reduce the nutritional quality. The healthy dietary fiber CAVAMAX® W6 alpha-dextrin offers the ideal solution for your next-generation icing and frosting formulations with its unique functional properties:

  • Superior stability at high temperatures
  • Consistent viscosity and spreadability
  • Enables the use of vegetable oils instead of saturated fats

Purely Vegetarian Emulsifying Dietary Fiber

CAVAMAX® W6 is a naturally occurring, soluble dietary fiber enzymatically derived from starch. It has excellent emulsifying properties and forms stable oil-in-water emulsions by interacting with fatty acids. CAVAMAX® W6 stabilizes liquid oil efficiently and results in icing and frosting preparations that are easy to process.

Healthier Nutrition Profile

The emulsifying dietary fiber CAVAMAX® W6 is 100% vegetarian. It allows manufacturers to use healthy vegetable oil instead of solid fats. Thus, it results in a better and healthier nutrition profile.
