Margarine & Butter Blends
Margarine is a semi-solid emulsion composed mainly of vegetable fats and water used both for spreading and for baking and cooking. Due to its wide range of functionalities, it is also commonly used as an ingredient in other food products, such as pastries and cookies. Margarine is universally formulated to contain minimum 80% fat and 16% water. It also contains a number of other ingredients (either water or fat soluble), being added to impart taste, flavour and aroma and enhance its physical, chemical and nutritional properties.
Butter blends could be defined as margarines in which the fat blend consists of a mix of butter fats and vegetable fats and oils. Butter blends are mainly used for spreading and frying purposes.
