Stabilisers, Gums and Functional Ingredients


Supplying stabilisers, thickeners, gums and also fumctional ingredients is part of our activity in the food market, to respond to increased needs of food industries of quality and safe food ingredients and additives.

Interpreting the multiple and differentiated needs of a constantly evolving market, we have selected a range of special products, of high quality and excellent performance:

Esprolac is a milk protein blend developed by a group of researchers from the University of Copenhagen as a fat substitute.
Thanks to its excellent stabilizing capacity, in recent years it has become an important ingredient in the production of high quality ice creams, with a limited number of ingredients and reduced use of additives.
Its ability to structure the mixtures in a very fine network and the high water retention lead to a greater resistance of the structure, a reduced syneresis in the finished products and an appreciable increase in creaminess. Furthermore, the small size of the ice crystals makes possible to obtain ice creams with a lower sensation of cold in the mouth.
Unlike many whey proteins, which tend to have bitter aftertaste and dark colors, Esprolac is appreciated for its neutral taste and very white color.
A high quality ingredient that has been highly appreciated by producers engaged in the preparation of products with recipes without E numbers on the label, ideal for the most demanding consumers.
In the markets of Northern Europe, Esprolac has also been used for years in the preparation of margarines, spreadable cheeses, sauces and condiments.
Linfa is the exclusive distributor of Esprolac for Italy, France and Switzerland.

It is used in the food industry as a food additive in the preparation of ice cream and sauces, alone or in combination with other gums, and in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry.
