AAK flaked fats are solid shortenings crystallised into a free-flowing form, which deliver a wide range of benefits.
First of all, they are cleaner, safer and faster to use than solid fat blocks. They can also be used to improve the texture of finished goods. Depending on the product or process, flaked fats can make your product lighter, airier, crispier or creamier.
They can provide layering without lamination, act as an effective moisture barrier and help you to adjust melt profiles. Fat flakes are great carriers of flavour and colour, which they spread evenly throughout the mix. They are available in different thicknesses and with added natural colour or flavour.
Perfect for pizza!
Flaked fats are especially good for pizza bases, focaccias and flatbreads. They help to shorten the time it takes for the dough to rise, improve aeration during baking and help to distribute flavour evenly. Using flakes will ensure that your finished product has a soft, fluffy interior and a crispy crust.
