Lasenor’s lecithins are used in a large variety of biscuits and cookies due to their special properties as food emulsifiers.
There are many parameters that have an influence on the production of biscuits and cookies. The ingredients and their dosage will, of course, determine the organoleptical characteristics of the finished product.
But also, the mixing time, the extensibility of the dough, the uniformity of the dough regardless of variations in temperature or the flour quality, etc will affect the production process and/or the quality of the finished product.
BISCUITS / COOKIES
Lasenor’s lecithins are used in a large variety of biscuits and cookies due to their special properties as food emulsifiers. Some of the advantages of using lecithins in the productions of biscuits and cookies are:
- Dough conditioner. Better workability and machinability.
- Emulsifier. Good distribution of fat within the dough.
- Wetting and dispersing agent. Merging of solid particles (starch, sugar) and water as well as other flour components in the dough.
- Release effect during stamp out stage (thanks to its lubricating properties).
- Improves texture and crispness.
