Customers seeking plant-based options to conveniently add great buttery taste and texture to foods have a new non-GMO, clean label option. At National Products Expo West (NPEW), Bunge Loders Croklaan showcased Whole Harvest® ColdChurn® Culinary Crème, specially designed as a butter alternative for food producers.

“Clean label ready meals, sides, and appetizers is an $11 billion segment showing 4% annual growth for the past three years—and butter flavor is a key growth driver, representing almost $700 million of the segment,” said Mark Stavro, senior director of marketing. “ColdChurn Culinary Crème enables food producers to avoid the hydrogenated oils and artificial ingredients included in most butter alternatives.”

ColdChurn is Non-GMO Project Verified and crafted by churning four premium ingredients in a chiller, creating a smooth and creamy texture with buttery flavor. It is made from high-stability sunflower oil, palm fruit oil, salt, and natural flavor.

“Early adopter feedback for ColdChurn is very positive, not only because of its flavor but also because customers can add the ingredient at high heat. They see this as a key benefit versus butter and margarine,” added Tim Surin, vice president of food processor sales for North America. 

ColdChurn expands the Whole Harvest portfolio of non-GMO, organic, and expeller pressed oils, all of which will be showcased at NPEW’19. Visitors to Bunge Loders Croklaan Natural Products Expo booth sampled ColdChurn in a Chili Chihuahua Burrito and Hawaiian Biscuits & Gravy.
