FoodPacific Manufacturing Journal 2018-09
RINGIER starts the month with the Asia Food and Beverage Summit scheduled from 4-5 September 2018 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Every year for the past four years, our company has been holding the event for members of the food and beverage industry in Southeast Asia. We have welcomed up to 200 delegates each time, so it is definitely an excellent networking opportunity as it is an excellent two days to sit back and listen to resource speakers refresh your knowledge of food safety, sustainability, innovation management, blockchain, processing technologies, and ingredient applications. A speaker at this event is Massimo Reverberi who founded Bugsolutely, one of several companies now incorporating edible insect powder in convenience foods such as pasta and snack foods. Crickets and silkworms, yes, they are the future of food, sustainable and high in nutritive value. Know more about these on page 6. This issue also brings interesting inputs from Kerry and Döhler on what’s trending in flavours and aromas. AAK shares an article on confectionery filling fats as well. The brewin

    Health & nutrition: We're born with unique physical traits, mental abilities, even susceptibility to particular diseases and conditions based on our genetic makeup. The quality of nutrition that was afforded us from the moment of our conception right into later years of childhood has also partly shaped what we have become. In her article Keeping infants healthy, our correspondent Pearly Neo gathers scientific references examining the significance of early life nutrition on growth and development. She mentions how crucial it is to ensure that early life nutrition is given not only sufficient, but also educated and competent attention. Innovation: In the March 2018 issue, we published Innovation Management, an article written by Dr. Miflora Gatchalian of Quality Partners Inc. in the Philippines. This month, we give you the second installment to that report which focuses on how to stay competitive. Sustainability: Forum for the Future, a non-profit group helping organisations across the globe create a more sustainable future, published the The Feed Behind Our Food r

    MEAT in its various preparations, remains a staple part of many an Asian’s diet amid an increasing consumption of non-animal proteins becoming evident in the region. Our report on pages 10-13 with data from the USDA, Thai associations, and other sources, tracks the production and exports of pork, as well as those of poultry and seafood from Asia. Together with the continued growth in the meat industry is the rise in the consumption of plant-based/vegetarian foods or non-animal proteins. Mintel’s report in April 2018 mentions health awareness as one of the key factors for increased intake of non-animal proteins in 2017, while concern for environment is also a trigger to examine processed meat production and consumption. Meanwhile technological developments in lab-grown meat production is helping move the industry in this direction although we may see the results only many years from now. One company that recently announced innovations is Aleph Farms Ltd whose 3D technology allows production of clean meat that resembles the qualities of traditional cuts of beef. If

    EVEN as partially hydrogenated fats – the source of trans-fats – are making your product all the more flavourful, or adding to its shelf life, there is no escape from the fact that you will have to eliminate these at some point. In fact, DD is just a month away. The US Food and Drug Administration states: By June 18, 2018, human food must no longer contain partially hydrogenated oils for uses that have not been otherwise authorised by FDA. The FDA gave companies ample time to prepare, having announced their ruling in 2015 that PHOs are not ‘generally recognised as safe’ (GRAS). Knowing the dangers of PHOs to health – that is, increasing one’s bad cholesterol – taking it out of the formulation is but the only step to take for makers of bakery goods, savoury snacks, creamers, confectionery, and so on. While early options were to use sunflower, canola, or soybean, their oils are high in saturated fats, yet these do not appear to raise LDL cholesterol in blood. Now newer innovative fat substitutes can be tailored to any food company’s needs, so product re-formulati

    HOW do you define innovation and how do you keep it alive in your company? In our special report, Dr Miflora Gatchalian, CEO of Quality Partners, Inc., does a run-through of innovation management, from definition to product development. She says, “There are various approaches to innovation which are useful in the food industry and depending on the company’s strategic plans, a proper choice can be made. Current findings indicate that the ‘radical’ type of innovation gives the highest returns on investment.” Note that innovation does not rest on one department alone. An aha moment can lead to a major innovation, one that can change what we eat or the way we eat it. Take Mathias P. Clausen’s curiosity of turning jellyfish into something munchy like potato chips. If you’re not familiar with Clausen’s work yet, read the article on page 33. This postdoctoral fellow at University of Southern Denmark in Odense, is on to something. Also in this March issue, we bring you trends and developments in liquid products – liquid foods and liquid smoke flavourings. Ou

  • Food Manufacturing Journal - Middle East 2018-02
    THE World Health Organisation says “obesity nearly tripled between 1975 and 2016” worldwide, and we know this to be a result of unhealthy eating habits or poor choices in food, coupled with inadequate physical exercise. Much has changed since 1975, obviously, and now it’s easier to gain weight. Back then, home-cooking was the norm; today, its convenience. We’re practically surrounded by restaurants, markets, 24-hour convenience stores, and vending machines. But it doesn’t necessarily mean we are surrounded by healthy food. It takes effort to seek, purchase, prepare and then stick to a nutrient-dense, low-calorie diet. Isn’t it faster to grab a packaged product and go back to our computers? But then again with the growing health concerns associated with bad diets, surveys show consumers are realising the need to go back to the discipline of healthy eating. Innova Market Insights coined it “mindful choices.” In fact most trends in 2018 point to consumption of simpler and more natural foods and products. In its website, the UN agency also recommends the food indus

    In the February issue of FoodPacific Manufacturing Journal, we bring you exclusive interviews with food ingredients manufacturers in our attempt to gather their outlook for the year and the R&D route they are taking to be able to provide you with ingredients for texture, colour, taste, shelf life, and health benefits. Year after year, more natural ingredients for everyday products like breads, chocolate, sauces, yogurts, and preserved meat, are meeting new requirements in terms of overall quality and of course, reduced cost. We talked to companies that invest heavily in R&D like Arjuna, Chr. Hansen, Epi Ingredients, Ingredion, and Tate & Lyle, all of whom expressed optimism in the diverse South East Asian market where products now call for better sugar substitutes, fibre enrichment, natural preservatives, and low-fat alternatives. Probiotics have become one of the sought-after health add-ons in food and beverage as well. So, we reached out to Ganeden which is currently marketing their probiotic products in SE Asia., New Editorial Board member We are pleased to int
