In its Food Report 2023, the Frankfurt Future Institute referred to fusion as “the gastronomic globalization of daily life”. Fruit smoothies are improved with ginger and turmeric, and kale curries are enhanced with coconut milk and kaffir lime leaves.
Coconut milk adds a unique touch to a variety of foods and beverages, whether fresh-made or ready-made. This has cemented its place in fusion cuisine. Not only that, but as a plant product, it’s ideal for the burgeoning plant-based movement.
Consumers nowadays demand natural foods to taste well and benefit their health. Vegan coconut milk powder is a wonderful functional alternative to typical milk products for preparing fully plant-based drinks and sweets.
Sternchemie has the perfect solution for every application, whether conventional, vegan, or organic cuisine, for industrial customers as well as the out-of-home market, with coconut milk powder from the SternCream series.
The new SternCream Vegan is versatile and easy to use. Its high coconut milk content imparts a genuine, authentic coconut flavor as well as a subtle sweetness. Ice cream, praline and wafer fillings, and sweet and substantial appetizers all have a creamy mouthfeel. SternCream Vegan also enhances the texture of soups, sauces, creams, and dips.
This coconut milk powder immediately dissolves in lukewarm water to achieve a smooth consistency due to its excellent instant and flow properties. Another advantage is that, unlike coconut flavorings and extracts, it is highly declaration-friendly, whether as coconut cream or coconut milk powder. It also keeps longer than regular coconut milk and is easier to dose.
Product benefits from gentle manufacturing
SternCream goods are created solely from handpicked ripe coconuts, the meat of which is cleansed, chopped, and pressed. The extracted coconut milk is double-filtered to assure the greatest quality of the finished product. It is then pasteurized and spray-dried to ensure consistently high quality, as determined by sensory panel testing.
SternCream powder has a shelf life of at least 24 months due to its low water content and oxidation stability. It is also more microbiologically stable than coconut milk or grated coconut. Another advantage is that all of its vital elements are kept thanks to the mild drying procedure.
Furthermore, SternCream does not require any preservatives, colorings, or flavorings.
“We collaborate with our clients to enhance our products and adapt them to present and future market requirements. The emphasis is on nutritional, trend, and ethical considerations, with protein enrichment, fat reduction, and fiber addition, as well as organic products and plant-based dairy alternatives” says Katrin Baumann, Technical Product Manager at SternCream.
This coconut milk powder provides firms in the food industry with a means to improve existing goods while also developing highly appealing new ones for growth segments such as the plant-based category.
