Why alternatives for emulsifiers reducing production cost present an opportunity?
Emulsifier substitutes are used in applications such as cakes, muffins, and bread. The most common emulsifiers used in baking are DATEM, CSL/SSL, or GMS. Enzymes are increasingly being used as alternatives to emulsifiers in baked products. Enzymes, when used in baking, restrict the use of emulsifiers in baking applications. One reason for this is that the raw materials used for emulsifiers are chemically synthesized esters of fatty acids which are expensive. For instance, DATEM (diacetyl tartaric acid ester of monoglyceride) is typically used for about 0.3% of the total flour weight. However, this is derived from raw materials such as palm oil, prices of which fluctuate due to seasonal changes. Thus, as prices of emulsifiers increases, production costs also increase. Depending on the amount of DATEM replaced by enzymes, there can be up to 50%-70% reduction in production costs. Therefore, enzymes have a good chance to act as alternatives for emulsifiers for reducing overall production costs.
