Food coating company Crisp Sensation aims to enable food manufacturers to produce crispy, crumb-coated snacks without the need for pre-frying or deep frying with its new ZeroFry coating system.
ZeroFry coatings are said to have the same crunchy sensation and taste as pre-fried products, but allow for “a fat reduction of 50% and a considerable reduction in calories”.
Neither the production process or the final preparation requires deep frying; ZeroFry crumbed products can be prepared in an oven or air fryer.
Crisp Sensation said the “breakthrough innovation” is suited to the needs of health-conscious consumers who do not want to compromise on taste or convenience.
The company added that as pre-deep frying is not necessary, manufacturers’ production output is not limited to the capacities of a deep fryer.
Christien van Beusekom, chief technical officer at Crisp Sensation, said: “We are proud to be able to bring this innovation to market. Snacking is an emerging global trend, so there is a real need to make snack products healthier without compromising on taste and texture.
“With ZeroFry, we also tackle the issue of acrylamide in fried products by offering safe alternatives. With this safe and tasty solution, snack manufacturers around the globe can easily adjust their range to modern nutrition needs.”
Based in Switzerland, Crisp Sensation has developed an innovative crispy coating system for frozen and chilled premium foods, suitable for improving existing product lines as well as launching new offerings.
