Global emulsifier manufacturer Palsgaard has opened an application centre in China, where its bakery scientists will help customers test and develop new recipes for cake mixes based on the company’s Emulpals and Palsgaard SA ranges.

New ice cream application facilities are also in place at the Shanghai site to test and incorporate  functional emulsifier and stabiliser systems in frozen dairy products, to achieve the desired mouth-feel, creaminess, melt-down properties and fat content. 

Additionally, the centre will provide solutions to protect products against the effects of heat shock, which is becoming a focal point for ice cream manufacturers to maintain quality once the product leaves the factory.

Chinese food manufacturers have been coming under pressure from consumers and regulators to place their emphasis on healthier, safer and more sustainable products Palsgaard said in a statement. 

As a result, the emulsifier specialist has developed a strategy to boost its ability to supply this demand. 

The company believes that China offers rich pickings in attracting customers looking for sustainable, vegetable-based emulsifiers at a time when a corporate emphasis on food safety and sustainability has been creating new opportunities. 

Palsgaard has been offering application service to its customers via centres in Denmark, Mexico and Singapore for decades and, as it plays a big part in how we can support our customers, we are thrilled to be able to offer this service to customers in China as well​,” said Calin Shi, managing director of Palsgaard China.

With our global set-up, our application specialists can easily exchange ideas with their counterparts on the other side of the world, using trends from Europe and the Americas to come up with new ideas for customers​.”
