HPMC can be used as thermal gelation aids in gas retention during baking, increasing baked volumes and improving texture. Hpmc also provides a more moist texture, increasing shelf life, improved emulsification of batters and better freeze stability.
In glazes, icings, and coatings, HPMC food grade add lubricity for easier application, provide creamier texture, improved spread-ability. and clean flavor release. In addition, HPMC thermally gel during heating, keeping icings and glazes intact, and during cooling revert to the original consistency of the product.
Pie and pastry fillings
Thermal gelation reduces boil-over during baking and inhibits moisture migration from fillings to crusts during freezing. HPMC also improves freeze stability.
HPMC products modify ice-crystal size to give smoother textures. Increased air entrainment improves overrun.
HPMC products improve whipping properties for better body and appearance. Improved emulsion stability prevents syneresis and extends open times. HPMC inhibits phase separation in frozen toppings, even through repeated freeze cycles.
Structured vegetable products
HPMC products offer excellent film formation and high binding performance for foods that need to keep their components together. Products like vegetarian burgers, onion rings, and formed potato products are all improved by the binding strength and film formation qualities of HPMC products.
