Corbion has assumed sales and marketing for BASF’s Spongolit aerating emulsifiers and Lamequick whipping agents in North America, BASF’s Human Nutrition business said Nov. 30.
“Through its partnership with Corbion, BASF provides the market with two products that can create delicious baked goods with excellent taste and sensory characteristics,” said John Helfrick, director of BASF Human Nutrition, North America. “”Our performance ingredients, Spongolit aerating emulsifiers and Lamequick whipping agents, are backed by BASF’s 150 years of innovation. Together with Corbion, we will deliver the quality and technical integrity customers expect.”
Lamequick delivers a light and creamy texture to provide taste and a pleasant mouthfeel in whipped desserts, cream fillings, cake decorations, ice cream and frozen desserts, according to BASF. In decorating creams, it provides sharp edges when piping, smooth texture for spreading and stability for serving.
Spongolit allows bakers to create quality cakes quicker, according to BASF. When used in whipped batters for a variety of cakes, it ensures stability, volume and crumb structure.
“Our customers in the sweet goods segment look to Corbion for solutions that help them succeed in this very competitive area,” said Jim Robertson, senior product manager, emulsifiers, for Corbion. “With this new partnership, we’re well prepared to meet their comprehensive sweet good needs.”
