Description:
A FATTY PREPARATION, A PROCESS FOR MAKING SAID FATTY PREPARATION, AND A PRODUCT CONTAINING THE SAME.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to the field of foodstuff. In particular, the present invention relates to a solid fatty preparation which does not comprise fats with a plant origin saturated fat content higher than 25% by weight nor fats with an animal origin saturated fat content higher than 15% by weight nor trans fats, nor totally or partially hydrogenated oils or fats, nor interesterified fats, which are all harmful for health, a process for making such fatty preparation and a product containing the same.

BACKGROUND

The discussion about the use of palm oil in the processed food industry has marked the entire sector in recent months. However, while the social and media pressure grows against a foodstuff whose nutritional properties and its productive process are questioned, the sector is betting more than ever on this ingredient.

The first data of 2017 show that the trend continues to rise. According to the trade register, palm oil has been imported by a value of 216 million between January and February, almost twice as much as in the same months of the previous year.

However, the sector intends to calm the discussion about this product. Sources of the Spanish processed food industry assure that the properties of this ingredient "allow to enjoy a wide range of safe products for human consumption". In particular, it is highlighted that it allows to extend the useful life of food.

There are many voices which have criticized the use of this food. On the one hand, NGOs and environmental organizations have criticized the environmental impact of their production. But the criticism of palm oil is made, above all, from the point of view of health. In 2016, the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) conducted an assessment of three potential food contaminants: glycidyl fatty acid esters (GE), 3-monochloropropanediol (3-MCPD), and 2- monochloropropanediol (2-MCPD). These substances are present in many different oils and fats, although, the highest levels of GE, 3-MCPD, and 2-MCPD are found in palm oil and palm fats. They are formed during food processing, particularly when refining oils at high temperatures (about 200°C). For consumers aged three and above, margarines and‘pastries and cakes’ were the main sources of exposure to all substances.

The present inventors have particularly focused on the meat sector. The meat sector occupies the fourth industrial sector in Spain. Within the food industry occupies the first place, representing more than 21 .6% of the entire sector. Within the Spanish meat sector, the most widespread consumption is that of the pig, this being the only one that presents increases in consumption, compared to cattle, sheep or goats that tend to decrease.

In order to improve meat products, the meat industry has developed several open innovation lines aimed at:

1 . Reduction of fat (like pig fat) in cooked and cured products: For this, they are working with solutions that allow the total or partial replacement of animal fats with ingredients that provide added value: improved proteins or vegetable oils, enriched in omega 3 and 6, antioxidants, vegetable fiber...

2. Reduction of salt content: Despite its importance in the technological processes of curing and conservation, it is proceeding to reduce or replace its presence with other ingredients with its same technological function.

4. Reduction of nitrites and nitrates in the formulations

5. Less aggressive preservation techniques such as pulsed light or UV light.

This problem has led to the present inventors to develop alternative products to animal fats in order to manufacture other more complex food products that will get to the final consumer, therefore, meat, cheese or even food for animals. Animal fats also have a high content of saturated acids, reaching the same content as palm fat and this is why they are also to be avoided. If tropical fat can be replaced, it may also be possible to replace meat fat. Likewise, other fatty acids which can also be harmful to health are also intended to be removed from compositions for human or animal food.

Accordingly, the present inventors provide a new fatty preparation, a process for making thereof and products containing thereof that solve the above mentioned problems. In particular, they have achieved the following goals:

- Reduction of animal fat content

- Decrease of saturated fats with respect to bacon and/or lard

- Decrease in the energy value with respect to animal fats

- Rich in oleic and linoleic fatty acids. - Staining is allowed. The addition of vitamins and minerals is also allowed.

- Possibility of removing water from the original recipes

- Without cholesterol contribution

- Greater technological fluidity of the mass in the machinery. Less loss of material during processing.

- Reduction of the curing time of meat products (sausages)

- Increase the juiciness of processed fresh meat products (hamburgers)

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

In a fourth aspect, the present invention relates to the use of a solid fatty preparation according to the second aspect as a substitute component for fat or animal-derived ingredients to be incorporated in a meat or cheese product or in a product for feeding animals.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

In a first aspect, the present invention relates to a for making a solid fatty preparation to be incorporated in a meat or cheese product or in a product for feeding animals, in particular as a substitute component for fat or animal-derived ingredients, wherein said fatty preparation does not comprise fats with a plant origin-saturated fat content higher than 25% by weight, nor fats with an animal origin-saturated fat content higher than 15% by weight nor trans fats, nor totally or partially hydrogenated oils or fats, nor interesterified fats, comprising the steps of: a) weighing and mixing solid or dilution ingredients comprising carob preferably in an amount preferably between 1 and 12% by weight with respect to the total preparation and one or both of carrageenan and agar-agar preferably in an amount preferably between 1 and 12% by weight with respect to the total preparation; b) heating water in an amount preferably between 1 and 50% by weight with respect to the total preparation to at least 60°C in a cutter-type mixer; c) adding the ingredients of step a) into the heated cutter-type mixer of step b) until obtaining an homogeneous solution; d) adding an oil in an amount preferably between 1 and 50% by weight with respect to the total preparation selected from the group consisting of high oleic sunflower oil, olive oil, extra virgin olive oil, sunflower seed oil, rapeseed oil, grapeseed oil, and any other vegetable oil which is liquid at room temperature containing less than 25% wt of saturated fats, preferably selected from the group consisting of high oleic sunflower oil, olive oil, extra virgin olive oil, sunflower seed oil, rapeseed oil and grapeseed oil, until obtaining an emulsion without observing oil, providing that the amount of the components added in steps a) to d) does not exceed 100%.

The percentage for each component should be considered independently each other.

Examples of“said other vegetable oil which is liquid at room temperature containing less than 25% wt of saturated fats” are, but not limited thereto, rice bran oil, cotton oil, safflower oil and almond oil.

In a further embodiment, said process further comprises the step of:

e) packing the emulsion obtained in step d). This packing step can be carried out under vacuum or without vacuum, with heat-sealable sheet or induction, in bags or boxes, in cube, in shrink, extruded,...

In another further embodiment, said process further comprises the step of:

f) introducing said packed emulsion in a refrigerator or storing it at room temperature. In the context of the present invention the term“a plant origin saturated fat” is understood as plant origin fatty acids which do not have double bonds in their chain. Examples thereof include, but are not limited to, palm or coconut oil.

Likewise, the term“an animal origin saturated fat” as animal origin fatty acids which do not have double bonds in their chain. Examples thereof include, but are not limited to, lard, marbling, bacon.

The term “trans fats” is understood as unsaturated fats that are formed in the industrial processing of some foods known as hydrogenation, during which their configuration is changed. Examples thereof include, but not limited thereto, partially hydrogenated fats.

The term“totally or partially hydrogenated oils or fats” is understood as unsaturated fats that undergo a chemical process (hydrogenation) in order to incorporate hydrogen into their structure and thus solidify them. The process can be applied completely making them completely saturated or partial saturated (only a part of the fat is used). Partial hydrogenation can lead to trans fats.

The term“interesterified fats” is understood as fats that have undergone a chemical process by catalysts or enzymes, rearranging their fatty acids to convert them into solid fats.

The term“meat product” is understood as processed products resulting from the processing of the meat or from the new processing of said processed products, so that the cutting surface shows that the product no longer possesses the characteristics of fresh meat. Preferably, said meat product is processed meat, cured cold meat, fresh cold meat cooked cold meat, pate, “sobrassada”.

The term“cheese product” is understood as substitutes for cheese that do not contain milk, lactose, caseinates or fats of milk origin. Preferably, said cheese product is block cheese.

The term“product for feeding animals” is understood as a food intended for consumption preferably for pets (dogs and cats). The process of using fat is similar to that of human consumption and therefore it can be applied as the case of meat for human consumption.

In a preferred embodiment, the ingredients in step a) further comprises at least one of: cellulose, pectin, xanthan, guar gum, gum Arabic, meal, starch, salt, agar-agar, carrageenan, soy lecithin, sunflower lecithin, antioxidant, beta-carotene, colorant, preservative and aroma.
