Lecture and Production
Understanding Trans Fat Free formulations and mixing procedures for batters doughs and icings
Bakers have the opportunity to move away from substitutes created to replace transfats. The retail baker is responsible for producing quality products, and can do so by using natural ingredients that formed the foundation of the trade. By working with natural baking ingredients, and concentrating on quality not quantity, bakers can use natural emulcifaction to produce cake batters with six ingredients instead of the 30 listed on packaged bakery products. The baker needs to be a baker first and chemist second. Learn how to make transfat-free products.
