Stacks Image 468
Elan™ is a Unique Fat Reducing Emulsion
  • Elan™ fat replacement can substantially reduce the amount of Saturated Fat, Partially and Fully Hydrogenated Fat and Trans Fat in essentially any processed food that contains such fats. Fat reduction ranges from 20%-98%, depending on product matrix and client targets.
  • Elan™ utilizes healthy all GRAS ingredients, including non-hydrogenated, mono and polyunsaturated fats, edible fibers, natural vegetable glycerin, water, and other hydrocolloids. It can be produced with viscosities from pourable to hard at room temperature.
  • Elan™ provides excellent rheological and organoleptic characteristics, which are comparable or superior to the unhealthy fats replaced.
  • Elan™ exhibits melt point flexibility and long shelf life.
  • Replacement or reduction of unhealthy fats using Elan™ offers potential ingredient cost savings in most applications.

* Note: Both High Saturated Fat Oils and Mono and Polyunsaturated Oils are often hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated to mimic the properties of harder fats. Partial hydrogenation of otherwise healthy mono and polyunsaturated oils to create more viscosity, (to mimic harder fats) produces Trans Fatty Acids as a byproduct and these have been found to be as unhealthy as the saturated fats replaced. (The American Heart Association reports that ¾ of unhealthy Trans Fats consumed by Americans comes from partially hydrogenated oils).
