Palsgaard has launched a new PGPR product which offers chocolate manufacturers the best ever levels of functionality and efficiency.
PGPR (polyglycerol polyricinoleate) is used in chocolate production for mould optimisation, flow control and viscosity reduction. Palsgaard’s existing product, Palsgaard® PGPR 4150, is already the market leader but its latest offering takes PGPR performance to new levels.
Developed exclusively for chocolate, Palsgaard® PGPR 4190 is 15% more efficient at controlling viscosity than Palsgaard® PGPR 4150, and can be used at a dose 30 to 40% lower than other PGPRs, making it highly cost-effective.
Other benefits include easier flow, better coating of inclusions, and taste- and odour-neutrality. Palsgaard® PGPR 4190 will be subject to Palsgaard’s unique quality standards, with batch-to-batch checks guaranteeing uniform stability.
Morten Hoffmann Kyed, Director of Product Management at Palsgaard said, “We’ve led the market for many years, but this really is the next level for PGPR. Palsgaard® PGPR 4190 is the result of years of research and innovation, and it will offer chocolate manufacturers unique, best-in-class functionality. Furthermore, because a tiny drop delivers a huge effect, its benefits also include very high cost-in-use savings.”
Palsgaard® PGPR 4190 is designed for chocolate spreads and enrobed and moulded products. Although it works well with traditional chocolate emulsifier lecithin, it is an ideal partner for Palsgaard® AMP 4455, an alternative to lecithin with better organoleptic properties.
Palsgaard® PGPR 4190 is manufactured in the company’s specialist facilities in Denmark, the Netherlands, where all production is CO2 neutral, and which have recently undergone extensive equipment upgrades.
Emulsifier specialist, Palsgaard helps the global food industry make the most of the ability to mix oil and water.
Thanks to the company’s specialised emulsifiers (and emulsifier/stabiliser systems), bakery, confectionery, condiments, dairy, ice cream, margarine and meat producers can improve the quality and extend the shelf-life of their products. Just as importantly, they can produce better-for-you products with improved taste, mouthfeel and texture while using less resources.
Palsgaard is currently the world’s only commercial source of fully sustainable, emulsifiers based on RSPO SG-certified palm oil and produced by CO2 neutral factories in Denmark, the Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, China and Malaysia. The company’s products are non-GMO and meet Halal requirements.
Palsgaard reported sales turnover of US$245 million in 2020 with products sold to more than 120 countries.
