Fat Symposium CIO-941 Seminar expired

18.06. - 19.06.2019

This symposium provides an overview of the latest topics around fats and oils for the confectionery industry. The latest product concepts and trends as well as findings on processing will be presented by experts.

 

The topic of "fats & oils" is certainly one of the most controversial discussions in the food industry in times of fat reduction and palm oil debate. Are there good or bad fats? How harmful is palm oil? Like often in nutritional science, the answer is not that simple. People need fatty acids to survive, it depends on the quantity, but above all: on the variety and the right combination.

However, fats and oils are irreplaceable in food production: as important flavour carriers and consistency enhancers, they are indispensable.With this background, the ZDS is organising the Fat Symposium in Solingen from 18 to 19 June 2019. The programme takes into account the complexity of the topic "Fats & Oils" and promises exciting insights into developments, processes and future issues.

Networking:

Of course, in addition to the lectures, communication among the participants also plays an outstanding role. For this reason, there will be "network coffee breaks" during the conference and a festive evening buffet as the social highlight.

Foyer-Exhibition:

As an exhibitor at the Fat Symposium you have the opportunity to present your company with a stand during the whole congress in our foyer.
The foyer is located on the way to the lecture hall, where the breaks and demonstrations take place.

As an exhibitor, this is an ideal opportunity to present your products with all advertising materials.
The foyer exhibition, coffee breaks and conference dinner offer the opportunity to directly contact the lecturers and provide an optimum platform for getting to know potential business partners.

The Presentation: FT-NIR (Fourier-Transform-Near-Infrared) spectroscopy as a fast

Near Infrared Spectroscopy has been a well-established technique in the agricultural sector for more than 50 years and has recently become an integral part in the food industry laboratories.  Today's FT-NIR technology offers a lot of advantages over classical wet-chemical and chromatographic analyses, since it is quick, cost-effective and safe, as no hazardous chemicals are used. It also avoids the typical error sources of the classical lab methods, e.g. during the sample preparation stage. With only one measurement, multiple components can be analyzed in less than one minute. Multi-purpose spectrometers can analyze both, liquid and solid samples and are the ideal tool for the non-destructive and rapid analysis of oilseeds and finished oils throughout the entire manufacturing process.

The Presentation: Basics for the large-scale application of processes for the production of fats and oils with reduced levels of 3-MCPD fatty acid esters and related compounds

After the first communication of MCPD esters in edible fats and oils in 2007 and later of glycidyl esters in 2008 a lot of research has been done to elucidate the reaction pathway(s) and to find mitigation strategies to reduce the formation of these contaminants during oil processing. The mitigation strategies can be divided into a) avoiding or removing of precursors during all steps of the value chain up to refining, b) process changes during refining and c) removing of the formed esters after refining (post refining processes). Nowadays, a multitude of different methods to reduce MCPD and glycidyl esters are known and partially used in oil mills and refineries. These methods will be described and evaluated.

Dr. Yuantong Zeng, Bühler AG, DE

Yuantong Zeng received his diploma in food science from ETH Zürich in 1995.
Due to the course of his PhD study on Swiss KTI-Project “Seed- and Shear-crystallization of chocolate” at ETH Zürich, he had developed the SeedMaster-Process for chocolate pre-crystallization (1996 – 2000, Referent: Prof. Dr. E.J. Windhab).
Yuantong Zeng is currently working as Senior Process Engineer R&D for chocolate technology at Bühler AG (since 2000). His research is focused on topics like crystallization of cocoa butter and fats, pre-crystallization of chocolate and wet-grinding technologies (such as ball milling) with successful market launches across the globe in chocolate industr.

The Presentation: Determination crystallization behavior using MultiTherm® - BCI of cocoa butter, cocoa liquor and chocolate mass.

Cocoa butter is the crystallizing part of cocoa bean. The hardness and the melting characteristic of chocolate depends on the giving crystallization ability of used cocoa butter and cocoa liquor. The origin of cocoa bean genotype), the ripeness of cocoa fruit, the harvesting condition, the fermentation condition, the processing condition (roasting, deodorizing) and storage condition can influence the crystallization ability / capability of cocoa butter.
The MultiTherm TC is a newly developed approach for the determination of cocoa butter, cocoa liquor and chocolate cooling curves. This instrument is specially designed to minimize the influence of the ambient temperature. The cooling temperature is selected to maximize the expansion of the exothermal reaction of cocoa butter (17.6°C), cocoa liquor (19.0°C) and chocolate mass (20°C). The so-called Buhler Crystallization Index (BCI) is calculated based on the information of the whole cooling curve, included nucleation and crystal growth parts. BCI describes the crystallization capability of cocoa butter.
It is highly recommend to determine the BCI-value of chocolate mass prior the tempering process and in overall the forming & shaping sections (such as molding and/or enrobing) in order to get a better understanding of the crystallization specifics of the subjected mass matrix. In fact, the desired process parameter settings of tempering machine and cooling tunnel are related direct to BCI of chocolate mass. For instance, chocolate mass with lower BCI-value must be tempered and cooled at corresponding lower temperatures and at longer residence time.
The BCI measurement of CBE, CBS and CBR will be introduced and discussed.

In  fall of 2019, she will start her PhD on the subject of tracing food by using blockchain technology in cooperation with an consortium project called SiLKe - Sichere Lebensmittel Kette (Safe food chain).

The Presentation: Transparency in the supply chain through blockchain technology

Throughout the food industry products and data are distributed and transmitted vertically and horizontally along the supply chain. It is rare to use unified systems which operate across more than two supply chain levels. Therefore in many cases it has taken along time to reconstruct the entire value chain of an affected product in food scandals in order to identify and communicate the cause of the scandal. The presenation shows how food traceability and counterfeit security of related data can be improved through blockchain technology. The acquired data should be modelled based on blockchain technology which would ensure crosscompany transparency.

The Presentation: Strategies for avoiding fat bloom in filled chocolates

Fat bloom is an undesired loss of quality of filled chocolates or chocolate-covered products. lt is produced by migration of filling fat through the chocolate and recrystallization on the surface. The formation of fat bloom depends on different factors such as tempering of the chocolate, storage temperature, composition of the filling fat and composition of the chocolate. A proper handling with these different factors can reduce formation of fat bloom
