Tate & Lyle announces the launch of a unique tailor made cocoa replacement solution using a high quality carob powder ingredient, CARCAO™. This solution allows food manufacturers to make significant cost savings in the total recipe cost.
With its familiar cocoa-like flavour and colouring, CARCAO™ can be used as a partial cocoa replacement in dairy, bakery and ice cream applications. Working to individual manufacturer briefs, Tate & Lyle can develop bespoke products according to the manufacturer’s desired colour or flavour.
For instance, by adjusting the temperature and roasting conditions during the production of carob powder, Tate & Lyle’s specialists are able to produce a series of different CARCAO™ products, ranging from light brown and sweet tasting to dark brown with a strong unsweetened taste.
Tate & Lyle’s technologists work hand in hand with manufacturers to develop customised recipes and achieve the desired results. Case studies are developed to demonstrate the cost benefits of using CARCAO™, including a Chocolate Mousse, a Chocolate tasting Muffin, a Cocoa Drink, a Chocolate Ice Cream and a Cocoa Filling. Those great tasting recipes have similar properties and quality as the full-cocoa alternative and deliver significant cost reductions on the total recipe cost.
