What is it? Smart Fat is an emulsion of healthy vegetable oil and water, stabilized with vegan ingredients (plant, algae, or microbial) to replace the fatty component in processed foods.
How do these new fats make a difference? Whether you operate in traditional meat and dairy or are at the forefront of plant-based meat and dairy substitutes, the market is leaning toward stronger nutritional profiles. This can now be achieved by reducing the animal fat, cholesterol, or coconut oil in your products (to minimize the saturated fatty acids). Cubiq Smart Fat also reduces the number of ingredients in processed products, which also supports clean labeling.
Why is SMART FAT better? This vegetable oil emulsion contains between 40% and 50% water, which reduces the caloric content, (the amount of total fat, and saturated fats) and significantly improves the Nutri-Score of the product.
SMART FAT has an adjustable melting point of between 60 and 80 Celsius degrees, as well as behaving like an animal fat in terms of visual appearance, bite, and mouth-feel. These features leave the original product profile unchanged, making it the best replacement for animal fat and coconut oil in new-generation foods.
