Puratos Solution: Impact of Acti-Fresh on Loaf Cakes Loaf cakes are family-size cream or pound cakes. Packed, they can have a long shelf life and it is a challenge to maintain their fresh mouthfeel. Acti-Fresh ensures the freshness of every long-shelf-life loaf cake recipe, eliminating any rancid off notes due to oxidation of the fats.
Puratos Solution: Impact of Acti-Fresh on Muffins Small size and extensive crust causes muffins to dry out quickly. Inclusions such as chocolate chunks, candied fruit and nuts absorb water, further contributing to the drying out of the crumb. Acti-Fresh helps you to get the most out of these trendy recipes.
Puratos Solution: Impact of Acti-Fresh on Chocolate Cakes Chocolate cakes face special challenges regarding freshness because the cocoa powder dries out the cake, resulting in a faster hardening of the crumb. With chocolate cakes being the #2 preferred cake worldwide and chocolate the #1 flavor in sweets, ensuring the freshness of your chocolate cakes is vital to your business. Acti-Fresh provides the solution.
Puratos Solution: Impact of Acti-Fresh on Cake Donuts Because of their extensive crust and small size, cake donuts are particularly vulnerable to staling and drying out. Also, the fact they are fried and not baked, presents additional challenges. Acti-Fresh is an ideal, high-performance freshness enhancer for all pre-packed cake donuts.
Puratos Solution: Impact of Acti-Fresh on Snack Cakes Enhancing the freshness of your cake recipe doesn't have to impact the label content. See the following example of a snack cake for which the use of Acti-Fresh allowed for simplified labelling.
Acti-Fresh improves the freshness of cakes, resulting in a better product appreciation, great distribution advantages, and very few stale returns. Your benefit
