HAHN & Co. offer a range of stabiliser systems with focus on the health and wellness segment.
Health and wellness as international mega trends in dairy and convenience products.
Health and nutrition are two very popular topics – food products (ranges) with health-driven claims are flourishing in every supermarket today. We are not divulging any trade secrets when saying that in the future, continuing double-digit growth rates are predicted for the health and wellness market. In order to further address this trend with respect to the dairy and fine food segment in particular, HAHN has launched its new range: Health Solutions@HAHN.
Throughout many years, while developing high quality products with respect to stability, texture and mouthfeel, HAHN food experts have also designed many product ranges for the wellness and health segment. Depending on requirements, these products can offer considerable fat reduction and/or declarations free from ingredients such as egg, wheat, gluten and/or animal protein.
To supplement this product category, Health Solutions@HAHN offer blends that combine a stabiliser component with health-focused ingredients in order to add fibre and/or sweetener blends to a product.
Examples for product positioning with Health Solution@HAHN
Sugar reduced products, products without added sugar or calorie-reduced products. This recipe design with tailored HAHN stabiliser systems includes specially tailored sweetener combinations; for high quality products with a view to flavour release, texture and viscosity. Next positioning: rich in fibre or enriched with fibre products: a recipe adjustment with tailored HAHN stabiliser systems which include fibre component such as polydextrose or soluble gluco fibre. Another example: products, enriched with other healthy ingredients, with a recipe design with tailored HAHN stabiliser systems and incorporation of healthy ingredients such as secondary plant extracts, Ω3 and Ω6 fatty acids, special oils or proteins.
The Health Solutions@HAHN range offer a vital market advantage: Quick and effective realisation of product concepts for the growing health and wellness market, due to the renowned HAHN product service.
Application examples from the HAHN TECHNOLOGY CENTRE (HTC) – for convenience products
As a starting point, to assist the food manufacturer to develop customised product concepts for the health and wellness segment, HAHN have selected three basic recipes from a host of innovative recipes that are developed in the HTC on a daily basis.
- Health Solutions@HAHN for mayonnaise: fat reduced, egg free, low cholesterol, enriched with fibre
- Health Solutions@HAHN for dips: no added sugar, enriched with fibre
- Health Solutions@HAHN for tomato ketchup: no added sugar, enriched with fibre
As well as these verified product prototypes, HAHN can present additional information on competencies and know-how in the fields of technology, recipe design, nutrition physiology and innovation – this of course is also available for dairy applications such as for the beverage segment: a smoothie with yogurt; sugar reduced, high in fibre and 37% fruit.
