Icing Shortening and its Applications

In the recent decade, there is tremendous growth in the field of bakery and baking products. Modern food additives and ingredients are being followed by the baking industry. Icing shortening is used widely in the baking industry for decorating purposes, as the appearance of any food influences the quality of the food directly.

Icing shortening is made by blending monoglycerides, and diglycerides with citric acid in order to protect the flavor. The monoglycerides and diglycerides in the icing shortening are vegetable fats that are made from hydrogenated vegetable oils. Sometimes animal fats such as pig fat are also used in the icing shortening.

Icing shortening is used as bakery filling fat, bakery margarine, cake shortening, chewing gum stabilizer, spreads, confectionery, dairy fat alternatives, and others. There are two types of oils used in icing shortening. PHO (partially hydrogenated oils) are high fat content oils with high amounts of cholesterol in them. Non-PHO (non-partially hydrogenated oils) are oils that contain less amount of saturated fat in it.

Icing shortening gives good flavor and texture to the cakes and baked goods. Icing shortening has a demand among food manufacturers for its various properties. The demand for icing shortening will result in potential growth in the market as there is an increase in the demand for baked products.

Why Do Bakers Prefer Icing Shortening?

Sugar and fat are often whipped together to make the icing. Shortening is fully white, unlike typical fat sources like butter, making it particularly helpful if you want to obtain a dazzling white tint for your icing. Since shortening has a higher melting point, your icing won't melt in higher temperatures. This helps the cake's icing embellishments maintain their shape regardless of the ambient temperature.

Shortening also has the advantage of producing icing that has a lot of volumes and is creamy and fluffy. Who wouldn't want that to cover their cakes in slathering? Have you ever wondered how those elaborate icing flowers on cakes maintain their shape and never melt? The icing most likely contained icing shortening.

Opportunities for Participants in the Icing Shortening Market
