With more and more American adults becoming increasingly conscious about the healthfulness of the food they eat, food manufacturers everywhere are trying to cater to the calorie-counting masses. Even in the sweets and desserts industry, bakeries all across the US are searching for alternatives to high-fat, high-cost ingredients that can lower the fat and calorie content of even their rich, decadent baked goods. However, in an industry and where ‘creamy’, ‘moist’ and ‘sweet’ are common buzzwords, no baker is willing to sacrifice flavor and texture for fewer calories and less fat. Though the idea of a low-fat cheesecake might have the consumers’ mouths watering, if it doesn’t taste or feel like the real thing, consumers will walk away.
Rather than waste your time and taste buds on non-functional alternatives that will only end up changing the texture and taste of your decadent desserts, Grande Custom Ingredients Group® recommends using Grande Bravo® functional whey protein concentrate. When it comes to lowering fat, while maintaining full flavor and natural mouthfeel, no other whey protein concentrate comes close to matching the level of functionality of Grande Bravo. Just look how it stacks up next to our competitors!
