/PRNewswire/ --
The complexity of food reformulation is discussed in detail in this month's
management briefing from just-food: Fat Reformulation - Challenge of change.
Contributing editor Ben Cooper offers a detailed analysis on the pressures,
strengths and strains certain companies are facing from food regulators and
campaigners in the reformulating of fats.
This four part management briefing highlights the major pointers and
reformulation developments. The sections look at:
Putting the issue into context
Switching bad fats to good fats
Industry engagement
Sat fats in baked goods
Putting the issue into context: Under pressure from regulators, campaigners
and consumers, food companies are reformulating products to reduce what
are sometimes termed "nutrients of concern", including fat. Part one of the
briefing argues the issue of fat reduction proves food reformulation is as much
about value judgements and perceptions as it is about scientific discovery and
technological progress.
Switching bad fats to good fats: Prompted by public health campaigns and
changes to product recipes, consumers have become more aware of the
difference between bad and good fats. Cooper, however, reveals some industry
members disagree, suggesting 'consumers can be confused by a wave of
information'. The differences between good fats and bad fats, including recent
statistics, are outlined in this section.
Industry Engagement: Part three looks at how the increase in calls for levies on
fat has intensified in recent years but reveals regulation on the level of the
nutrient in food is rare. Cooper acknowledges dairy has made the most
significant changes to the formulation of its products, stating the sector 'leads
the way'. The dairy sector has "revolutionised fat reduction", insists Dr Ingrid
Appelqvist, senior researcher at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial
Research Organisation (CSIRO) in
Australia
.
Sat fats in baked goods: Dairy processors have been at the forefront of fat
reformulation but bakers and snack makers have not made as much ground.
Those in the baked and snack goods sector argue they can go no further but,
as Cooper writes in the final part of just-food's management briefing, others
believe further progress can be achieved. CSIRO's Appelqvist suggests there is
"still quite and bit that can be done". However, officials at UK food
manufacturers Premier Foods and United Biscuits argue reducing fat in baked
and snack goods creates a problem with the taste of products.
The management briefing is an innovative detailed analysis of the major
concern shrouding over the food industry to date. Read the full exclusive
insight.
