The Sensory Lab will include:

  • Technical Sessions

  • 11:00 - 12:00   “1A-FILL70 vs 1B-KRYSPEC” Fat-based chocolate filling with different vegetable fat, milk fat, cocoa butter, etc from other ingredients with different % in composition and thus provides different texture & functionality -  AAK

    Around 30% of every filling is the filling fat, with a key influence on the stability, melting properties, texture and flavor release. Fillings in confectionaries that are low in saturated fats or high in cooling sensation are gaining popularity. Thus, specialty vegetable fats – the key to differentiation. Demand is growing for healthier products with a lower content of saturated/trans fat per serving. But functional & healthy product comes with a price. This test is to study if the local Thai’s preference based on different filling fats, and if they are willing to pay for a more premium product.
