Valley Pride MaxiVol

Valley Pride MaxiVol is a fluid shortening developed for use in cakes and muffins, and is also suitable for banana breads and fruit cakes. The emulsifiers used in MaxiVol have been selected for their ability to promote cake volume while contributing to the hearty texture and mouth feel associated with high quality, patisserie-style products.

The global drive to reduce levels of saturated fatty acids and trans fatty acids in bakery products has focussed attention on alternatives to traditional cake shortenings and margarines. Valley Pride MaxiVol assists in the design of products that feature a traditional flavour, texture and mouth feel while reducing the level of saturated fat and keeping E numbers to a minimum.

About the Valley Pride Range

The Valley Pride range of shortenings offers results which feature a traditional flavour and texture while achieving significant reductions in saturated fat and overall fat content. Valley Pride shortenings rapidly mix into the dry ingredients, resulting in an even distribution throughout the flour and an overall reduction in the level of shortening used.
