AAK: a new, simpler approach to meet UK Government health targets on calorie, sugar, salt and saturates reduction

AAK is the most diverse supplier of plant based fat and oil technologies to the UK food industry including for pastry, cakes, cookies, and meals.

Manufacturers struggle meeting Government health targets when replacing ingredients one at a time eg sugar with a sugar alternative only to find the product has a different taste, texture or shelf life.

AAK recognises that most food contain fats and oils and it is their interaction and synergy between the other functional ingredients that is key eg sweetness perception depends as much on fat type as the sweetener. Changing the fat often means sugar or calories can be reduced more easily! This approach has already been successfully used in major UK products from cakes to sausage rolls.
