their oil, it may be able to go a
very long time before needing to
be totally replaced, Kolavo says.
However, if one is frying something highly spiced, with lots of
particulate, and not filtering, that
would need more frequent replacement. "Some people decide
when to change out based on
flavor and color, some use Total
Polar Material testing, some go by
length of time."

If the fat
is too liquid
and soft, it
can blot and
get soggy."
Peter Kolavo, South
Chicago Packing
Daniels of Stratas points out
that it all starts with the flavor
you want to deliver. Factors to
consider are smell, look and taste.
"There is typically a break-in
period before you reach the
'sweet spot' for optimal frying
time," he adds. Be warned. Once
foaming or smoking occurs, that
is evidence of breakdown of
the frying oil. "We like to guide
people to: What does it smell
like? What does it taste like?"
Daniels says.
Kolavo agrees that it is vital
to pay attention to where you
are in your cycle. Many fats and
oils are at their best when they
are slightly "broken in," he says.
"Don't be afraid to do a little mad
science and keep tasting and
keep testing."

New product innovations
At IBIE, Stratas Foods presented
what it calls two industry-changing products, Golden Flex and

Superb Select 1020. Released
in 2018, Superb Select 1020 is a
soy-based, palm free shortening
made without hydrogenated
oils that substantially reduces
saturated fats compared to most
shortenings.
Stratas Foods brings this
product innovation for the
foodservice area (for retail bakeries) under the brand names
Sweetex Golden Flex for icing and
Primex Golden Flex for all-purpose needs.
"These work like PHOs with
the same functionality," Daniels
says. "We are able to achieve this
through simple blending and
processing techniques. There is
a nice clean aroma and the clean
taste associated with US-grown
soybeans. This is the freshest
product you can find."
Other companies presented
new innovations at IBIE. Bunge
Loders Croklaan introduced its
complete portfolio of Vream Elite
premium shortenings.
"Shortening is a key ingredient
in bakery, but bakers still face
challenges in finding products
that are easy to use while also
delivering great sensory experiences across today's most popular
applications," says Mark Stavro,
senior director of marketing.
"Vream Elite shortenings are made
from high-stability soybean oil.
They deliver tremendous functionality whether you're working
in cool or warm conditions and
are optimized by application to
deliver fantastic appearance, texture, and mouthfeel."
Bunge Loders Croklaan is
launching three new Vream Elite
shortenings to build on the existing line of icing, donut and tortilla
shortenings that were launched
earlier this year.
"Early adopter feedback for
Vream Elite is very positive.
Customers are excited about
its sensory and functionality

benefits and how it's tailored to
meet specific needs across icings,
cakes, pies, cookies, donuts and
tortillas," says Tim Surin, vice
president of food processor sales
for North America.
Looking at the available
options of shortenings, Kolavo
says that everyone's setup and
equipment are unique, so you
must think for yourself and pay
attention. "You have to test what
works best for you and try your
best to write down the variables.
Donuts are an art and a science,
and there are some surprising
things that can happen."
Bakers looking for customer
support with donut fry questions
should note that companies
like Stratas are heavily involved
in service and quality. "Frying
shortening is a value-added
component of a successful donut
program," Daniels says.
Each product spent years in
creation at Stratas' Research,
Development and Innovation lab,
benefitting from Stratas' new crystallization technology, and receiving commercial validation feedback from Stratas' clients before
being released to the market.

WHAT MAKES
ONE DONUT
BETTER THAN
THE NEXT?

Appearance
Maintains shape after
frying; Doesn't collapse
or dent; Consistent
spread and height

Color
Medium-golden (neither
too pale nor too dark)

Oil uptake
Minimal oil weeping;
not soggy

Flavor
Round, sweet, with
savory base notes

Flavor and performance
What are the most important factors to consider for a retail bakery
when selecting a preferred donut
fry shortening?
Kolavo cites flavor and performance. "Economics are certainly
important too, but taste and quality are for me the most important.
Fat absorption in cake donuts
and yeast-raised donuts is a contributing factor to consider.
"This also varies widely. It
totally depends on things like the
specific recipe, surface area to
mass ratio, proofing times, shape
and size," he says "I have seen
20-45%, which is very significant.
I would say around 25-35%, with
cake donuts typically picking up a

Texture
Yeast donuts should
be smooth and lighter
with a tender texture.
Cake donuts should
have a firmer and
desnser texture, without
a waxy mouthfeel

little more than yeast raised.
"In any case, the choice of fat
is definitely a large component
of the final donut experience and
should be carefully considered
based on your tastes and needs,"
Kolavo says.
