Functional Food

Functional food products typically contain vitamins, minerals, proteins or other nutritional ingredients with targeted health benefits. Such items could include confectionery, snacks, bakery, dairy nondrinkable food products, meat and poultry, grain and flour, and frozen fruits and vegetables. ABITEC supplies a wide range of ingredients that can aid in the functionality and nutritional composition of these foods.

Vegetable oils have various uses as functional lipids in food applications as replacement fats and flavor carriers. Pureco oils can be heated to relatively high temperatures without smoking or otherwise breaking down, allowing fried foods to brown and cook more quickly and evenly.

Carrying the Flavor

These fats are essential for seasoning blends and dry powder blends, providing a source or enhancement of "creamy mouthfeel". Their narrow melt point ranges help provide control over flavor release, making them a great addition to complex flavors incorporated into salty snacks and other functional foods.
