Will Steam Infusion change the texture of my product?
Steam Infusion can change the texture of some products as its high shear mode can work like a homogeniser creating a smoother textured sauce.
This can also be used to create a fat mimetic to give the feeling usually delivered by the addition of a dairy-based ingredient.
Some customers have been able to reduce the butter in recipes by up to 20% with no impact on texture. This ability has also been used to produce ready meals for dieters, extra creamy porridge and very indulgent cheese sauces all with reduced fat content.
Without the correct guidance, Steam Infusion can damage starch or water down sauces. This is why we at OAL run an open cooking school where you can refresh your knowledge about Steam Infusion and learn how to write recipes or create new and exciting products.
